Intel Ice Lake aims to boost battery life to 25 hours

Over at CES, Intel talked about its upcoming 10nm Ice Lake platform. These chips will feature the new Sunny Cove cores and promise a big gain in mobile battery life. ExtremeTech highlights that Intel is now talking about laptops with a battery life of up to 25 hours. Of course, this isn't exclusively achieved by making the processor more energy efficient. Intel is also counting on other advancements like more efficient DRAM and lower-power screens:
As part of its Architecture Day, Intel discussed some of these improvements. The company wants to see 1W displays in-market by 2020, which would represent a significant reduction from average display power in current models. The company is taking other steps to improve overall energy efficiency, including plans to offload AV scaling to the GPU (it’s previously discussed this) and its integrated WiFi 6 and Thunderbolt 3 support. To be sure, pulling these functions on to the SoC will probably increase overall efficiency, since most I/O blocks benefit from this type of integration, at least at some level.
