Intel to Take Care about Power-Efficiency of Ivy Bridge Processors

The rising competition between the two giants in the manufacture of processing units, Intel and AMD, makes each of the two invent ever newer technologies and implement them in their products. The attempts to dominate in the market and win as many consumers usually develop into brand new approaches and brand new advanced facilities.

In this light, Intel is going to upgrade its Ivy Bridge processors to make them more power-efficient. But power-efficiency does not imply that processing units will show less performance; quite the contrary, the manufacturer is willing to combine an utmost performance with the maximal power efficiency level.

Currently, the most power-saving processors of Ivy Bridge generation can be found in mobile devices on Windows platform and in Apple MacBook Air devices. Their TDP level is recorded at 17W. As appears from the above mentioned, the TDP level in upgraded Ivy Bridge processors will be lower than 17W, though the developers do not voice the margin so far. Such move is targeting primarily the designers of ultrabooks and tablets who strive for boosting in performance and low power consumption.

Nevertheless, lower power consumption level will result in the integration of units into such compact devices as tablets and pads. The less power the unit consumes, the longer the autonomous operational time of the device is. The implementation of power-efficient processors will also save laptop/ultrabook/tables developers from the necessity to install expensive and voluminous coolers to provide enough cooling to the CPU. Instead, it will become possible to install really compact cooling systems to manage effectively with heat.
