Intel‘s been trying to play the slow tease with its Haswell microarchitecture dating back 2008. Currently, we finally have a look at what products running that 22nm core may look like. Shown off at IDF 2012 down in Brazil, the company’s prexy Fernando Martins was photographed brandishing an Ivy Bridge Windows 8 ultrabook, replete with touch screen functionality.
If these hands-on functions will make it into the final consumer device, this new style does at least tip us off to a potential form factor. When those chips do make their official debut, you could expect a line of ultrabooks that will reportedly consume 20-x less power and last up to 240 hours on standby.
