Intel confirms the Haswell chip with 4.5W SDP

In the previous IDF San Francisco, Intel promised: Haswell will go down to 4.5 watts of SDP. While the first models announced earlier during the launch failed to reach such figures, but internal documents evoked such product have just been confirmed. Haswell (Core Processors fourth generation) will be of only a few watts! If the information seems to surprise some, it is not really surprising. Intel had indeed indicated that there is nearly a year that the chip goes beyond Ivy Bridge. The latter was to 7 watts of SDP for some particular models, and 10 watts to TDP. The Atom and his successors, they are limited to about 2 watts in terms of the products currently covered by the mark in terms of mobility. In June, we already learned that the purpose was reached already down to 6 watts for 2-in-1 and the Ultrabook, warning that he did not intend to stop there. And it's now official; there will also be versions of 4.5 watts only SDP that will emerge during the second half of 2013. And they will "build the first 2-in-1 passive based on Core architecture." It remains to know the price of this product and its performance. These will necessarily be limited, especially as the SDP wants a realistic indicator of power consumption under conditions of use. Hopefully accessible products may be right and it is not only for mini-luxury machines.
