Spring Meadow saves your battery

Half of CPU power to be saved for a rainy day


Tree huggers around the world will be happy to learn that Intel has something for them, too. Intel has showcased the first demo of a technology codenamed Spring Meadow that can save some additional power from your always connected Ultrabook.

Compared to currently available "always connected" devices, Intel can save up to half of the processor power and still do the same task. The key thing is that Intel can use much less power on its future parts to stay in connected idle and at the same time even when it is doing heavy load including synchronizing pictures and videos it can again save half the power.

This will result in better battery life as the CPU is still a big power consumer and cutting its power in half will result with much better battery life, while still staying connected. Always-on could save power in the future Intel parts, but Justin Rantner, Intel’s CTO wasn't clear when this tech is going to hit the market. We can only hope it will happen soon.

It looks impressive and we hope to see actual products soon, lets hope already with Haswell.
