Analysts at ABI Research report that Intel’s latest Atom processor - the Z2580 clocked at 2.0 GHz - sets the bar for performance and current drain in smartphones.
The retail versions of Intel's Haswell chip reportedly run hotter and sip more power than pre-production silicon. In addition, the processors cannot (allegedly) be overclocked to the same speeds, while retail chips are "around 15°C" hotter than pre-production samples.
Intel has officially confirmed its next-gen Thunderbolt protocol will double the throughput of its predecessor, all while remaining fully backward compatible.
Desperately clawing to the notion that more is less in the post-PC era (we never tire of saying that), Intel wants to kind of have its cake, eat it, and make you pay for it. Maybe someone can explain why I would want a hybrid tablet/laptop when maybe, just maybe, I need a tablet with a keyboard, or not.
Intel struggles to be dominant in mobile. As much as any multi-billion dollar behemoth struggles to do anything. Meanwhile, ARM just sails along nicely, thank you.
The ASUS Transformer Book Trio runs in PC and tablet mode and can switch between Android and Windows. The question is why?

The PC will be saved from its much predicted doom by the glorious power-saving ability of the Haswell chip, at least according to the prophecy of Intel's chief technology officer Justin Rattner.
Although AMD has seen better days, the stock had quite a rally in the first half of the year. Propped up by encouraging console design wins, AMD gained 83 percent this year, but now it is tumbling back again.
The CEO of Oracle, dashing Larry Ellison, earned $96.4 million last year and it’s hard to figure out how he can make ends meet.
Chipzilla's efforts to push into the mobile arena are paying off, but the fashion bag maker is still in a holding pattern waiting for Ultrabooks to take off, according to an analyst from Morgan Stanley.

Hot Hardware has spotted that Intel's new Haswell chip is going to be the first x86 CPU to have a on-die voltage regulator module, or VRM.
Moore's Law is eventually going to crush Intel's opposition as companies are unable to pay the huge costs involved in R&D and new process gear.
Manufacturers are hoping that a new crop of notebooks based on Intel’s Haswell processors and Windows 8 can help them buck negative trends in the PC market. A torrent of announcements is expected at Taipei's Computex fair next month and the first designs are ready and shipping.
Chinese chip vendor Allwinner Technologies might have sold more application processors for tablets in 2012 than Intel and Qualcomm put together.
