Intel have already started to draw plans for 2013. Currently, running a modern laptop won’t last long while in battery power. For example, my HP Lap which have a Core i7 chip can only last for about 2 Horus! But, what if we can work 24 hours in battery power? What if we can keep the machine in standby mode for 10 days? Now that’s the future!
According to Gizmodo, the latest Intel Chip which they are going to introduce on 2013 is going to consume very little power. Intel have been working really hard to bring down the power consumption on their chips. So, the rapidly growing mobile devices can get the benefit out of it. Not only that, this new chip consumes very less energy so that we can power it from a solar cell! So, the future laptop will come with a solar panel? Since everyone is looking for green energy, this might really change the world. Actually, if they introduce this technology, we won’t have to use car chargers for our laps!
Not only that, Intel have also decided to add more features to its inbuilt graphics system. Actually, you might have heard that Intel have started to add the GPU right into the CPU. A big blow to ATI and Nvidia! The same thing Microsoft trying to do with Windows 8′s Defender!
Anyway, with this announcement, the future of mobile technology got more brighter! Not only mobile devices, the desktops will also benefit from this technology by reducing our power bills. Hmmm… Im thinking… Can I plug a machine with this new chip to our solar panel? I wonder…
