Upcoming Chromebook Models Will Use Haswell Architecture

A new Chromebook model powered with new energy-efficient processor may make an appearance at the IDF (Intel Developer Forum) later this week. Chromebooks gained some recognition in the market thanks to their lightweight and slim design. It runs Google Chrome OS, which is optimized for online computing.

To provide some boost to performance level, the upcoming Chromebook models will be powered by the Intel Haswell. Samsung, Acer, Lenovo and Google are selling a variety of Chromebook models. Other laptop makers may join the fray, as the laptop platform becomes more mature.  Chromebook vary widely in prices, the Acer C7 Chromebook is now available for £215, while top models, like the Google Chromebook Pixel is available at £1,200, which offers a 12.5-inch display with 2560 x 1700 resolution.

The adoption of Chromebook among UK consumers has been quite slow, but the new Haswell processor can help to improve the situation. Compared to the older Ivy Bridge architecture, the Haswell is expected to deliver 50 percent longer battery life. Budget-level Chromebook models may use the low-power Core i3 processor, which allows manufacturers to develop fanless design.
