Haswell processors for laptops will consume up to 57 W, desktop - up to 100

Intel provides with three graphics levels: GT1, GT2 and GT3. Desktop processors won’t receive graphics performance higher than GT2, but mobile processors will be able to boast of with GT3 class. Support of PCI Express 3.0 for Haswell processors will be quite usual characteristics, but at the memory controller little progress is seen — yet provides dual-channel DDR3-1600.

By energy consumption Haswell desktop versions will be divided into models with values of 35, 45, 65 and 95 watts of TDP level. For mobile processors the values are ​​37, 47 and 57 W. Finally, ultra book processors with built-in system logic will be filled by TDP level not more than 15 watts. It is assumed that this will enable them, among other things, be in standby mode up to 10 days without charge.

The desire of Intel to compete with AMD in terms of performance integrated in graphics processor, will add some work to companies producing cooling systems for laptops. The developers report about …

Encouraging Forecasts for Ultrabooks

Notebooks and netbooks, which have been the pioneers in the field of portative devices in the recent past, are now considered to be regular gadgets available practically for all people. IT market is oversaturated with the offers from different companies that produce those devices. Growing competition makes those companies invent new strategies in the development of notebooks, providing customers with more impressive performance and stunning design. The end of 2011 and beginning of 2012 was marked by the launch of new notebook generation, the generation of ultrabooks. The mass production of ultrabooks is prognosticated for the mid 2012.

The developers of portative devices took the challenge to combine the functional characteristics of ultrabooks with their ultrafine design. Such companies as HP, Lenovo, Dell, Acer, and Asustek can be called the pathfinders in this technological sphere and their masterpieces have seen the light already in the end of 2011. The representatives of …

Official Presentation of AMD G-T16R for Embedded Systems

AMD has replenished its product line with a new hybrid processor with appreciably low power consumption. G-T16R belongs to the Embedded G-Series line and is a part of AMD Brazos 2.0 platform. This APU is primarily destined for the embedded systems employment. AMD representatives stress out that G-T16R is an appropriate solution to be used in transport equipment, trade and cash desk stations, medical electronics, as well as in industrial administrative systems.

The company has managed to design its hybrid processor in a way to make it more saving than any other product of the same line. Thus, the average power consumption level equals to 2.3 W with Thermal Design Profile (TDP) of 4.5 W. Despite such low-power index, G-T16R is able to secure high performance showings which exceed the showings of the predecessor Geode LX three times as much. To continue the comparison, the new model consumes 7% less power than Geode LX but, at the same time, takes 58% less space on the motherboard …
