Smartphones provide 28-hours battery life and now Intel is aiming to do the same with its laptops. Furnishing a display technology that allows the laptop to consume less amount of battery life like a smartphone is certainly a good idea as it will help those who travel, work more on the laptop and business professionals.
Intel’s technology now makes a two-watt display into a one-watt display. Literally cutting down half of the power consumed. This means the laptop now can deliver an extra four to eight hours depending on the laptop’s performance. This was shown practically with the help of Dell XPS 13 with Core i7 8th Gen CPU that showed a battery life of 20 hours. The same system had the new screen and eventually lasted 25 hours at the same time a prototype Intel device lasted 28 hours.
CNET reports say that the screen also needs Intel’s power management system that only works with Intel’s integrated graphics. So for those who prefer AMD graphics and Nvidia are really out of luck. This display technology of Intel was revealed when a rival mobile chip developer called “ARM” targets Chrome book market and Windows PC. ARM declared that the chips they produce will have NextGen laptop-class performance.
Intel is seriously heating up the market along with ARM, we are yet to the see the full potential of these Laptop screens that consume less battery.
