INTEL ULTRABOOK REQUIREMENTS IN 2012
INTEL ULTRABOOK REQUIREMENTS IN 2012 - Intel announces new standards for producers who, in 2012, they will want to add ultrabook own mobile offering. Among the most significant introduction of support for multitouch, GPS, ambient light sensors, proximity and accelerometer, as well as the presence of USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt.
The ultrabook notebooks are designed and strongly desired by Intel, which established the characteristics and technical parameters to be observed in production. In the next update, so for the second generation of ultrabook which will be based on new Intel processors Chief River and Ivy Bridge , Intel has redefined its guidelines, with important news. The news was published today by Fudzilla , which you can find a discussion.
Despite so pretty gloomy sales forecasts for the first six months of 2012, the California-based company did not give up and even try to extend the functionality of their products, hoping that since September, with the release of Microsoft Windows 8 and with the desired reduction in prices of basic versions of ultrabook, sales will eventually raise the miserable 20% now . We propose here, then, the main innovations in the future ultrabook present.
- Thickness, TDP and design remained unchanged the maximum thickness allowed, equal to21 mm for 14 mm and 18-inch diagonal notebook for less, and the TDP of 17 W. But now there may be new designs for ultrabook convertible under 14 inches, the maximum thickness of which does not exceed 20 mm. Examples of these new form factors are both the latest Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga that the prototype Intel Slider , both seen recently at CES in Las Vegas.
- Autonomy: Intel has also been established that the minimum duration of the batteries can not be less than 5 hours (measured using Mobile Mark 2007), but still recommend at least 8 hours or more.
- Networking: With regard to connectivity, the base must obviously include the WiFimodule, but Intel also indicates their standard Widi (Display WiFi) to connect wirelessly to the ultrabook external devices. Finally we recommend the integration of the new USB 3.0ports and / or Thunderbolt, both supported natively by the chipset Intel Chief River.
- Storage: Ultrabook the next generation will also ensure the exit time from sleep less than 7 seconds and is now required as a minimum feature of the presence of an SSD capacity of not less than 16 GB, while no longer usable traditional hard drives, even in the basic versions of ultrabook new generation, although there remains the possibility of adopting a hybrid SSD + HDD, but the space for storage of the two should be seen as unique.
- Performance: With regard to the performance but the guidelines provide for the adoption of SSDs that do score a higher score in PCMark Vantage to 16000 and a value of at least 80 MB / s for video editing, in the same benchmark.
- Other technologies: Intel has added support for certain technologies such as touch-screens , GPS, the ’accelerometer and proximity sensors and ambient light, all typical of the tablet and whose presence in ultrabook new generation had been anticipated some time ago.
