Intel unveiled its next generation Haswell chip architecture at its developer forum which will debut in 2013. It's biggest USP - 24 hour battery backup on a single charge.
This is possible because of a 20 fold reduction in power consumption as compared to the previous Ivy Bridge platform. The reason Intel managed such advanced power saving is the 22nm 3D transistor architecture which uses so little power that the chip can be powered via a solar cell.
Intel showed a demo of the Haswell platform on a Windows prototype, powered through a tiny solar cell which utilized light offered by two light bulbs.
The Haswell platform will succeed the Ivy Bridge platform which will ship in 2012.
Besides this, Intel and Google announced that all future versions of Android would support Intel's chipset architectures.
Intel seems to set to break new ground in terms of power efficiency, which is critical to being successful in the mobile space.
