TweakTown reports Intel will reveal some new Ivy Bridge based ultrabooks at Computex. The chip giant reveals there are now 21 ultrabooks on the market, and boasts that more than 110 designs are currently being worked on.
The next-gen ultrabooks promise "impressive 3D graphics" with twice the performance gains in media and graphics compared to Intel's current-gen 17W Ultraprocessors. Here's a look at the list of specifications that are used to define a third-generation Intel Core-based ultrabook:
Ultrabook devices must be 18mm or less in thickness for systems with displays less than 14 inches and 21mm or less for systems with displays 14 inches or more; some current systems are much thinner.
All 3rd generation Intel Core Ultrabook devices wake in a flash - going from a very deep sleep state (S4) to full use (keyboard interaction) in less than 7 seconds and wake from "sleep" mode even faster. Additionally, they must be responsive while active, meaning they will load and run favorite applications quickly.
Extended battery life:
Ultrabook devices must offer at least 5 hours of battery life, with many meeting the recommended level of 8 hours plus in even the sleekest form factors.
Anti-Theft technology is a hardware-based technology that makes it possible to lock down an Ultrabook system if it's lost or stolen and helps secure sensitive information stored on the device's hard drive.
Ultrabook™ systems come enabled with Intel® Identity Protection technology to provide a more secure online experience for activities like shopping, banking or gaming online. It uses chip-level authentication similar to hardware tokens and is widely regarded by security experts as a more secure approach than software-only authentication.
Ultrabook devices based on 3rd generation Intel Core must have either USB 3 or Thunderbolt technology to enable incredibly fast transfer capabilities.
