At the press day before CES 2013 officially kicks off Intel unveiled its fourth-generation Intel Core processor, which will reportedly be able to extend the battery life of latest mobile PCs to 9 hours.
Formerly known as Haswell the new chipset is made with ultrabooks-slash-tablets in mind and could reach 13 hours of battery when docked to a keyboard.
The device in question is codenamed North Cape and is a 10 mm slate with a standalone keyboard with battery.
Intel achieves the extended battery life by reducing the power consumption from 10 watts to 7 watts.
Also the next-gen ultrabooks will not only use touchscreen technology but require it – Intel will make touchscreen and WiDi wireless display technology a must for ultrabooks using Intel Core fourth-generation processors.
