FUD Zilla heard rumors about the specifications of Lynx, the chipset for Intel's mid-2013 22nm Haswell processor. The new chipset will have a 25 percent lower TD Pand 50 percent lower average power consumption than the current Panther Point chipset. These figures are projected and not based on actual data measured in real life tests though, so actual power consumption figures may deviate somewhat from the projections.
Intel also brings a power optimizer CPPM part that should help to drive the power requirements further down. The most interesting part is that Lynx chipset also has support for 15nm Broadwell chipset that is expected by mid-2014 timeframe.
Intel advertises this chipset as the lowest power and the most feature rich one to date. It sure looks interesting and supports all the latest technologies you can imagine including 4 SATA 6Gb/s, 6 USB 3.0, up to 8 PCIe 1X Gen 2, the ability to interconnect easily with Intel Clarkwill GbE PHY, Wilkins Peak Wimax, Intel HD audio, VGA, a lot of RAID functionality, Intel Active Management Technology 9.0, Rapid start and smart response and many other goodies.
