Intel is going in for the kill. The company has lowered the lowest SDP (Scenario Design Point, different from TDP) rating of Haswell based microprocessors from 6W to just 4.5W. The difference might not look like it's much (just 1.5W), but it is quite significant. While 6W wouldn't allow OEMs to use the processor in compact form factors like tablets, 4.5W will allow the same OEMs to go for fanless, passive-cooled Haswell powered tablets. Intel will ship very limited quantities of 4.5W SDP Haswell SKUs.

With that TDP and with OoO then they can kill off the lackluster Atom line.

We will have to wait for pricing and volume to make that statement :<

Yeah. Never know. This might alone cost $350. There goes the Surface 2 pricing (through the roof)

Im guessing Nokia is also gonna reap the benefits of this with their W4M handsets. Wel....when they are more widely available.

Semiaccurate tells intel is lieing and they are old parts actually http://semiaccurate.com/2013/07/25/intel-keeps-up-the-unethical-sdp-scam-with-new-4-5w-parts/



''The idea is simple, they are announcing a 4.5W Haswell for fan-less tablets, you know the ones no one is buying because they are fundamentally awful devices. This sounds good on paper until you realize that SDP is in fact a scam that Intel goes out of their way to keep people from understanding.
The short version of SDP is that the 4.5W and 6W versions are in fact 11.5W versions that they just cap the power going to.
If you take a 130W TDP Xeon and supply it with 6W does that magically make it consume more than 20x less power? Technically yes but there is no semiconductor changes there, just marketing BS. It is still the same part that it was before.
You can tell Intel really doesn’t want anyone asking questions about SDP because the first time they talked about it at CES they wouldn’t even mention that it was the fake SDP numbers rather than the real TDP that they kept mentioning in the keynote ''

Regardless of whether they are lying or not, product testing will sniff out the problems, high GDP etc.

Sdp isn't any faker than tdp but it is important to know the difference, and to know others do the same. its just another way to design a use profile for a bin and get some chips sold.
Crack I want chips the size of a pin head and I want them in EVERYTHING bill gates
