Intel Shows Off Prototype Haswell Ultrabook Hybrid Running Windows 8

At CeBIT 2013, Intel revealed a new prototype Ultrabook hybrid running on Intel’s upcoming Haswell processor with Windows 8. The prototype has a full HD screen with the ability to separate dock and the screen. Intel is using the 22 nm process for Haswell processor and is expected to release CPUs based on this microarchitecture around June. With Haswell, Intel will introduce a new low-power processor designed specifically  for convertible or ‘hybrid’ Ultrabooks that will allow OEMs to come up with innovative PC designs.

    I’m really interested in a 13″ Full HD Haswell Asus Transformer Book. If they make this with the 500GB HD in the KB dock, I’ll be in since this will become my laptop/Steam Gaming device and I passed on the first round so I could have a better Gen 2 device.

    Want! Want even more Surface Pro with this inside.

    Hot darn that looks good.

    I hope the next Surface Pro will have at least 12.5 inches screen, Haswell CPU, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD drive, etc…

      I think that a 14″ or 15″ tablet that is extremely light like 1.5 pounds would be phenomenal. That way they would be able to fit a large battery inside that could keep it running for about 12-15 hours especially with the Haswell processor.

    Wow its rocky

  • ahmad

    does it have fans ?

  • Breakingillusions

    more like surface Pro idea starting to be a standard everyone follow LG, sony and now intel :)

    Just release it already. It will be Nov. December before actual units hit the stores.

    • FXi2

      Agreed – can’t wait for it to arrive.

    I’m astounded this moron spends all the time showing off the aesthetics of a protype.. Run a bunchmark or show off the battery life or something!

    • arrow2010

      Stop it with your battery life obsession. Many of these displays will be plugged into AC power.

      • koenshaku

        That one was clearly not plugged in….

      i’m the guy behind the camera… it was a press conference and we had a SHITLOAD of people behind us wanting to film this thing… PLUS intel has locked the cpu speed to 800 mhz on this prototype AND we were closely watched while doing this video – no chance of installing benchmarks or battery life measuring tools or shit like that. sorry but there was simply no chance of doing the stuff you are calling us morons for.

        I concede to a degree there is the HTML 5 quick and dirty fish test just to see how many swim or at least just mousing down to see windows estimate of remaining power would have been nice also. The point of Haswell are expanded battery life and graphically performance otherwise it is any other platform. She had two minutes to flip around a prototype why not do the HTML 5 test in this situation were you specifically told not to?

        • http://www.facebook.com/roland.quandt Roland Quandt

          exactly. intel doesn’t want to give away _any_ specifics or even clues concerning the performance. they required us to stay away from any performance or power measurements, if we wanted to publish the video above. we had to consent to this, otherwise heads would be rolling inside of the company.

          • koenshaku

            Well that sucks, seems I was too hasty to judge aesthetics it is then my bad >_>

  • tomakali

    Looks like theres a lot of bump required in tech domain
    – battery power [quick charge, last day long]
    – components [less weight]
    – modular hardware design [detachable keyboard, camera lenses, split screens etc]
    – Kinect integration in portable devices
    – Speech Tech has to go far far way
    – Robotic Nature of Computing devices [AI learning system]

    I seriously want to own a quantum computing device asap…

    Put one of these in a Surface Pro and you can put me on the owners list, pure and simple. The icing on the cake would be a Verizon LTE modem chip, but Haswell is an absolute must.
    For the person wanting a 12.5″ surface, MS is building something in the ultrabook area that will likely fit your “just want a slightly bigger screen” desires. Surface Pro is good where it is, but I agree there is room for larger devices a bit more along the ultrabook or convertible types that could sport some larger screens. It’s only going to get better I think.
