Windows 7: Intel wants to micromanage tablet makers in the name of battery life

Intel wants to micromanage tablet makers in the name of battery life

One of Intel's goals with Haswell, the CPU architecture that is slated to replace the current Ivy Bridge processors next year, is to get the CPUs into more tablets. Ivy Bridge processors will appear in some Windows 8 tablets (like Acer's Iconia W700) this year, but tablets running Haswell chips should be thinner and lighter and, most importantly, get better battery life. AnandTech's analysis of the new architecture sheds some light on just how Intel plans to get its high-end tablets to use less power.

I'm thinking Intel is reaching for straws. Other companies will lower power usage when it can be done within a cost to profit margin.
