Geeks and gamers, palakpakan na may sigawan!
Intel has (finally) officially unleashed their 4th-generation Intel Core "Haswell" processors here in the Philippines! You know what that means: a new wave of devices that could remind you of Daft Punk's "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" should be arriving soon. How soon? We think it's only going to be a couple of months tops before we see these drool-worthy goodies trickle into our fave suking gadget stores.
But wait, what's a "Haswell"? Simply put, these chips are the latest and greatest consumer-grade processors Intel has to offer. Ergo, if you have a device with one of these bad boys inside, its performance will improve significantly.
Now if you need more convincing on why the Haswell-powered gadget deserves the next-gen tag, here are five reasons why it's truly revolutionary.
1. New design = better and sexier ultrabooks
A glimpse of things to come
We're told that Intel's 4th-gen processors are the first ones to be built from the ground up for ultrabooks. This means it's tailor-made for these sleek and sexy notebooks which bode well for compatibility and their overall performance. Ultrabooks are already quite fast but with these new chips in tow, they're bound to get even better.
2. Performance boost!
Intel's peeps look stoked, and we are, too!
We're not into numbers (unless we're talking about the FHM 100 Sexiest list), but we're gonna throw a few your way just to show you how A-okay these "Haswell" chips are. Intel said these new processors deliver 15 percent better performance compared to their predecessors. In real-world computing, everyday programs and software are said to run twice as fast. And if that ain't enough to win you over, editing and sharing HD videos can be done up to 20 percent faster than on older PCs and notebooks, thanks to its improved graphics capabilities, which is next...
