Historically, both main x86 processor manufacturers have developed their mainstream mobile processors for a power target of 15 W, which in turn have been sold as their U-series chips. Above this sits the 45 W mobile processors with more cores and higher clock speeds, known as the H-series. For as much as the U-series models have been pushed up in power for more performance, to 25 W or 28 W, the H-series has sometimes pushed down to 35 W, meaning that the two never quite met in the middle. Today Intel is changing that with its first U-series processor for the 35 W mark, and with it a new processor lineup called ‘H35’. Because this is the U-series moving up to 35 W, I’m surprised...
