This year is the perfect time for consumers to refresh their old tablet or PC with these new 2-in-1 devices”.
Intel’s announcement is definitely a boon for Windows PC users, who will benefit from enhanced features like.
- Low Power consumption: Looks to be the best addition of all, Intel says that the 4th generation processors will increase batter life up to 50 percent. This was possible when Intel further reduced the power consumption at CPU level to as low as 6 watts. Power optimization done with the help of System on a Chip (SOC) structure and bringing platform level technologies to Intel’s leading-edge 22nm process technology.
- Better Graphics: Haswell processors users will bring two times faster computing experience for Windows PCs users; effectively PCs response will be eight times better and users will have the ability to edit and share HD video about 20 times faster.
- SoC for thinner devices: With the help of highly integrated SoC, Intel would be able to bring even better visuals in thinner and lighter devices like mobiles, Tablets, etc.
- Ultra books will get a transformation – With 4th generation processors, new Ultrabooks will be touch-enabled and have Intel Wireless Display capability built-in to bring a natural touch and motion interactivity and speed mode for a low-latency gaming on the big screen.
Intel’s power packed announcement at Computex augurs really well for the future of Windows PCs and its users. Also with Haswell processors possessing such capability don’t be surprised if more companies announce new Windows PC with 4th generation processors for the rest of the year.
