Laptops: Intel is the 15 W

Intel yesterday held its Investor Meeting, an event dedicated to investors during which CEO Paul Otellini and the highest officials of the company presented its future strategy. Among the key issues, Intel has decided to go down a notch consumption of these chips for laptops. Despite the rise of smartphones and tablets, laptops are the primary target of Intel.

But the success of ultraportable machines such as netbooks and MacBook Air shows that consumers want more mobility. Intel has decided to cut a notch the TDP of its mobile processors. While the TDP of reference of a processor laptop is now between 35 and 45 W, tomorrow it will be centered on 15 W.

These new notebooks will also be super slim, can hold 10-hour battery, and provide graphics performance 7 times higher than today in 2013 and 12 times higher in 2015.
