The new Ivy Bridge processors are powered by the new Tri-Gate (3D) technology developed by Intel. A normal transistor have a flat stream of electrons. But Intel’s new technology allows them to flow in several layers! This allows it to run faster and with less power consumption. That means, more battery life and more speed!
It also have the new integrated 4000 HD GPU. That translates into better graphics and more high power games! According to Intel, its supposed to be 2 times faster than the older chip. Those are only the main new features. Check out the attached videos to get a clear idea about this latest master piece!
