Intel believes that Ultrabooks future microprocessors based on micro-architecture Haswell sales will take off Ultrabooks, thanks to high integration, graphics and other improvements aimed at reducing consumption .
Future microprocessors and Haswell Haswell-MB-ULT make a concession from a larger number of transistors and lower operating frequencies , in order to provide better consumer relationship, many of these additional transistors are intended for graphics unit, which has a greater number of shader processors and 128MB dedicated graphics memory on-die (known as code Crystalwell ), but all this extra hardware is priced, which many equipment manufacturers (OEM) are not willing to pay.
The current price-ULV Ivy Bridge chips for ultrabooks overcome the barrier of U.S. $ 225 and the manufacturers claim that Ultrabooks Haswell-ULT will price between $ 50 to $ 60 higher than the current ULV Ivy Bridge- ; price they consider absurd because many users are willing to pay the extra price.
