Anybody have an Ivy Bridge tablet?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
If so, would you mind posting your experiences?

I'm especially curious about factors that don't affect ARM tablets, like fan noise and standby/resume.

I would imagine that a number of people here are waiting for the Surface Pro, which is likely to be the flagship of this kind of product. If you bump this thread a few days after February 9, there are likely to be some opinions.

I think we'll be seeing even more powerful tablets when Haswell drops considering there will be 7W mobile Haswell chips.

Which is why I want to ask about Ivy Bridge. Essentially, are the inconviences of a 17W TDP big enough to justify waiting 6-9 months?

Imho, it's not a matter of whether the TDP difference is sufficient to justify the wait. Rather, it's a question of whether x86-based tablets currently available or are due to be released soon are good enough (not really in terms of processing power but rather when it comes to heat and power consumption) or do we need to wait for Haswell for something more acceptable?

How low can they get idle power consumption on ULV Ivy Bridge platforms? According to AnandTech, the iPad 3 uses around 6W sitting on the homescreen while the iPad 2 uses just 3W. That's already total power consumption for the entire tablet. The 7~17W TDP for Ivy Bridge/Haswell is likely for CPU only (granted at peak).

Even more of an issue than power consumption is heat. I had a poorly designed Viliv X70 EX tablet running Windows XP on an Intel US15W chipset (2.3W TDP) and Intel Atom Z520 processor (2W TDP) with total platform TDP of 4.3W and the thing usually died due to overheating after just 2 hours of continuous usage.

Standby/resume should be a non-issue as long as the tablet has an SSD. Albeit, another question is power consumption during standby. My Transformer Infinity and iPads can last well over 2 weeks on standby. Will x86-based tablets even last a week?

I guess we'll probably know more with the release of the Surface Pro.
