Despite the gap between the release of the Ivy Bridge processor and the Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks, some industry watchers have indicated that the next-generation processors of Intel were actually meant to be used on the Ultrabook. The Ivy Bridge Ultrabook will reportedly have an advantage over devices that use the Sandy Bridge processor.
According to some benchmark tests, devices using the Ivy Bridge processors are twenty percent better in power efficiency and performance as compared to devices that use the Sandy Bridge processor. This was revealed recently by Kirk Saugen, the vice president of Intel.
The battery life of the devices that use the Ivy Bridge processor also improved to a certain degree.
However it appears that the Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks will see a marked improvement in their graphics performance, which may also be noted in mainstream laptop devices. Although it will still be necessary to use a discrete graphics card when playing graphics intensive games, the Ivy Bridge Ultrabook will be able to handle most of the video games that are currently available in the market.
The Ivy Bridge Ultrabook will also be able to handle most videos without any problems.
A recent announcement by Intel revealed that seventy-five Ultrabook are currently being developed including some touchscreen hybrid devices. The price of some Ultrabook will also go down to around $700. However it is expected that the Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks will face some competition from the AMD Trinity ultra-slim laptops in terms of pricing and graphics performance.
Due to this the competition in the ultra-slim device market will heat up with the release of the Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks of Intel.
