Rumor: Intel Ivy Bridge processors prepares very low energy consumption for tablets
Today, intel maintains several open battle fronts to address the current computing world: Medfield tablet, high performance CPUs for PCs and notebooks, chips for ultra-low voltage (ULV) for thin ultrabooks and laptops, and several other products.
But as reported voices within the industry, the company has very little to tackle the heading of the tablets as ULV chips Medfield dissipate too much heat and would very weak, especially considering that the tablets with Intel inside will designed to run Windows 8 Pro So, the company would soon have a new solution: microprocessors based on the third generation ivy bridge architecture, but still lower than the ULV voltage for ultrabooks, those who currently have a TDP of 17W .
This will allow Intel to compete with ARM architecture in terms of heat dissipation and power consumption, assuming a performance capable of running Windows 8 Pro seamlessly with all Windows software support classic x86, ARM something that looks with envy.
