Ivy Bridge-ULV microprocessor for the 2nd generation Ultrabooks tested
The low-power intel microprocessor which will enhance the Ultrabooks second-generation high-end is code-named Ivy Bridge-ULV and make its official debut in a few weeks (June 5). From Anandtech bring us a little preview of what we offer Ivy Bridge-ULV.
Ivy Bridge Intel Microprocessors-ULV versions come with consumption of between 17W to 25w (model dependent) with up to two x86 cores and integrated graphics Intel Graphics HD 4000 (GT2). Anandtech tested the second generation Ultrabook: asus Zenbook UX21A Prime, which is based on a microprocessor based on the Ivy Bridge-core ULV (not reveal exactly which model it is but they say is the version with TDP of 17W), which compared with other recent notebooks and Ultrabooks first generation:
Ivy Bridge-ULV offers a modest improvement in performance over-ULV Sandy Bridge, in almost the same percentage as that between their desktop versions (Ivy Bridge vs Sandy Bridge-DT-DT), but in performance graphic history is very different and Ivy Bridge-ULV offers a significant increase in performance.
