Intel Announces New Low-Power Processors To Be Included In the Microsoft Surface Pro
The new Lexington platform for mobile devices in emerging markets is not the only thing that came out of Intel’s labs at this year’s CES. The chip-maker also announced its new line-up of low-power Ivy Bridge processors meant to drive ultrabooks and tablets.
Offering five times the performance of the now quite stale NVIDIA Tegra 3, the new processors draw much less power then the current low-power processors, specifically 7 watts instead of 17. The upcoming Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S, shown off at CES, is not the only device that will pack these new processors. Apparently, Microsoft’s upcoming Surface Pro tablet running full-fledged Windows 8 will also be powered by Intel’s latest and greatest, whenever they hit the market (though we expect them at the end of the month).
