Intel Haswell to stick to 15W for ultrabooks

Posted on Wednesday, July 11 2012 @ 12:20:15 CEST by

VR Zone reports Intel's 2013 Haswell chip will stick to a much sharper TDP range distinction than Sandy Bridge. Gone will be the 17W TDP chips for ultrabooks, they are all expected to be budgeted at 15W TDP for the whole package.
What happens if you either want to go up in performance, or want to save some bucks (for heaven's sake UltraBooks should not cost more than MBAs) and go for standard format notebook? Well, you'll have to change the socket and and the TDP. The chipset will not then be in the CPU package anymore, but you'll have a flexibility to choose between two and four CPU cores. The power envelope? In the first case, 37W TDP, and in the second case, 47W TDP. Wow, quite a difference when it comes to cooling and battery life...

Of course, we haven't covered yet the top end, with four cores, GT3 graphics and that 'something extra' L4 cache on a separate die in the CPU package, linked over a wide backside bus. Here we talk about 57W TDP, of course for a very powerful desktop replacement device.
