Windows Blue to bring longer battery life

The mysterious Windows Blue update to Windows 8, scheduled for this summer, will bring longer battery life to laptops and ultrabooks based on Intel’s Haswell processors, among other improvements to Windows 8 itself.

A source close to Microsoft has unveiled that Windows Blue will include an all new power model that can adapt to various devices and mobile computers with different levels of performance. Thus users of Intel Haswell ultrabooks and laptops will be able to enjoy very high performance yet they will also have longer battery life and lower overall power consumption.

Part of the magic may be attributed to the Haswell processors – Intel has proudly announced that the fourth generation of Core processors will feature revolutionary low power consumption. In addition the new Windows Blue power model along with a list of other unknown improvements might be able to increase the still very low Windows 8 sales.
