Asus Transformer Infinity Pad, Sony Vaio Duo, Toshiba Satellite, A Look at Intel's Haswell 4th Generation Ultrabooks and Notebooks [Photos]


Haswell microprocessor delivered what it promised consumers - Intel was successful in every sense of it. The chip made every Ultrabook and computing device battery efficient while maintaining high performance. The microprocessor offered a very powerful and reliable core for laptops, desktops and even serves. Intel took high performance computing to a whole new level.

Though most of the performance improvements especially in higher end situations are not apparent today, Intel still managed to deliver a set of processor utilities that is hard to match currently. The company is not just making bold claims but there is hard data to support this.

Intel said Haswell can provide all-day battery life and every computing device running it has claim more battery hours. Ultrabooks like Sony Vaio Pro and Asus Infinity Pad can last from 6 to 12 hours offering people access to their computers almost for the entire day.

Haswell's big promise did not focus on incredible performance per clock in legacy code rather it was more on the efficient use of battery life and ULT manifestation. Intel made it possible to bring high-end graphics in a notebook or ultrabook mode.

One thing's for sure: Haswell ULT delivers the most in the battery life department. The "tick-tock" mechanism also offers people with new and high end processor architecture. Together, the efficient power consumption and architecture gives people an extensive and quicker user experience.

Intel claims people can expect 15 percent improvement from computing devices powered by their chips. This can vary depending on the choice of computer. The following slideshow offers some of the best lineups of notebooks running on Intel's latest Haswell processor.
