Intel Shows Off Fourth Generation of Core Processors at CES 2013

Intel MacBook

Intel’s presence at CES 2013 currently revolves around its next-generation CPU models. These same CPU models will eventually find their way in to new Macs, as well as nearly every new PC sold.

The CPUs include the typical advantages over the previous generation of chips, such as being more power efficient, running cooler, and bumping performance in various aspects. The chips will first be shipped for desktops, which have fewer constraints than the typical laptop or notebook. However, Intel is reportedly pushing to have Haswell (the codename for this generation of processors) ready for upcoming Ultrabooks. Those lower-powered chips will find their way in to the MacBook Air, while Apple will likely opt for the more traditional laptop chips for the MacBook Pro (and iMac) for future updates and refreshes.
