Intel has officially unveiled the new processors on the architecture Haswell. Developers call this architecture the most significant upgrade since the appearance of the Core in 2006. As is common in Intel, its name taken from the map, or to be more precise – the map of Colorado.
Formally Haswell is the fourth generation of the family and the successor of Core architecture Ivy Bridge. However, if the Ivy Bridge has modified the implementation of Sandy Bridge on a more subtle process technology, the Haswell offers a fundamentally new design and a lot of improvements and same standards – 22 nm.
Haswell platform was developed with an eye on the growing market of mobile devices. Therefore, special attention was paid not only to increase productivity but also reduce energy consumption. The processors 15% superior Ivy Bridge chip performance and 50% – the time of the device from the battery usage mode. In standby mode, computers Haswell can stay three times longer than the computers on Ivy Bridge. This means that the device with a new processor will operate to 9 hours when they are active, and up to 13 days when it is in standby mode.
Numerous adjustments related to the built-in images. Built-in portraits core now helps the layout 4K (decision 4096h2304) and output to a few displays concurrently. Introduced beef up for Show Port v.1.2 interface and up to date variations of the API: DirectX v.eleven.1, OpenGL v.four.zero and OpenCL v.1.2. Moreover amendment GT3 is characterised through excessive efficiency built-in pictures on the rate of doubling the choice of execution devices and ROP devices.
Haswell processors reveal higher ends up in multi-threaded duties than their predecessors. The drift distribution within the mode of Hyper-Threading has been stronger thru various improvements. Introduced new command units, elevated quantity of buffer and queue size directions, elevated bandwidth cache.
Haswell processors are designed for laptop computer systems, laptops, ultrabooks, however one of the most major areas of software Intel believes “Transformers” – dishes that may be transformed into notebooks. As plenty of Haswell chips don’t require lively cooling, producers will have the ability to cut back the dimensions of the units.
Haswell quad-core fashions are on hand now, whereas chips for Transformers, pills, and laptops and computer systems “mediocre” will seem prior to the tip of the summer time. The following technology of personal computer computer systems and laptops Apple MacBook Air and MacBook Professional, the presentation of which is anticipated at WWDC 2013 will work on the root of Haswell excessive-efficiency.
