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 …

PC Chassis Lian Li PC-V750 Review

The inventory of PC cases and enclosures designed by Lian Li is constantly replenishing with new products. Some of them resemble each other in design or framework, but some stand out from the line due to their non-standard elaboration.
