Intel (INTC +4%) officially launches its first Haswell desktop and notebook CPUs. Thanks to both CPU architecture and platform improvements, Intel is promising a 30%+ boost in battery life over the current-gen Ivy Bridge under load, and more than a doubling of standby time to 10-13 days. Faster wake times, major GPU improvements (thanks to Iris) and thinner form factors are also promised. Reviews of high-end Haswell parts from CNET and AnandTech indicate moderate CPU performance gains, but also noticeable power improvements in real-life use. Dell, Asus, and others are announcing Haswell systems ahead of Computex, which begins tomorrow. (previous) (Barron's)

    Stock is low for potential in mobile market still. Battery life is important in mobile computing, batteries cannot really take more space in small devices.
