The New Intel® Microarchitecture

A huge leap for performance, graphics, and security

Discover what’s possible with new devices that have Intel Inside®

With the release of the Intel® microarchitecture formerly known as Haswell, the next generation of computing devices can get even faster, thinner, and lighter, while performing substantially better than before. From multitasking to multimedia, you’ll enjoy dramatic improvements in graphics and media processing, battery life, and online security, among other benefits. See how this new platform transforms multiple product lines, starting with devices featuring 4th gen Intel® Core™ processors.

Thinner, more stylish, and more portable than ever

The new platform not only scales to the demands of tablets, desktop PCs, and other devices, its more energy-efficient structure improves battery life. That means greater mobility with zero compromise in performance. In Ultrabook™ devices, for example, you’ll see slimmer, more stylish designs—many featuring touch-screen and voice functionality—in a wide range of convertible and detachable models.

Better graphics, more engaging experiences
