Intel seeks to hasten the release of the successor to Ivy Bridge
intel is just publicizing its third generation of Core processors (Ivy Bridge), however, there is also great interest around the next generation, called Haswell , which has no release date. In this is that the company brought together six of the largest computer assemblers to discuss the early integration of Haswell, because sales of ivy bridge have not done well.
Not only that Intel wants to rush to confront Haswell arm architecture is coming slowly to the area of conventional PCs due to its low power consumption. What will Intel on this? Haswell soon launch platform-ULT, which has a TDP of 15W-note the plant in the advertising image of Haswell-ULT-and displayed as an upgrade to the current Ivy Bridge-ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) that moves Ultrabooks those very thin notebooks to which they have so much faith in the company. Also note that the name change from ULV ULT apparently explained in clear focus that serves to Haswell-ULT ULTrabooks.
Returning to Haswell, as we know, this platform will host processor based on the same 22nm manufacturing process at Ivy Bridge, bringing new sets of instructions , while in the version for servers Haswell-EP CPUs are expected up to 14 cores on a single die (body or surface) and 35MB of L3 cache. On the other hand, Haswell-MB Notebook to have a TDP of 57W and Haswell-DT desktop up to 100W.
But more importantly, there will be a sharp change in the area of integrated graphics, where we see three classes: GT1, GT2 and GT3 , with the latter offering 2.5 times the performance of the current Intel HD 4000 IGP, thanks, among other things, to the inclusion of dedicated memory for graphics. In addition, the platform should be compatible with DirectX 11.1 and OpenCL 1.2 .
