Haswell to Reach 4.5W SDP in Limited Quantities

Intel has just lowered their lowered thermal expectations for Haswell if, of course, you use SDP as your metric. Scenario Design Point (SDP), as opposed to Thermal Design Power (TDP), describes how much heat dissipation is required for the product at some, usually underclocked, performance target. SDP does not need to affect burst performance, however, as the chip can still up-clock given some extra headroom.

While we don't know OEM partners, Intel could be green, with HP Envy?

It describes long-term cooling requirements, not instantaneous power draws.

In terms of SDP, Intel expected to ship 6W products based on their 4th generation core architecture. Today, Intel announced a limited stock will dip below that target, capable of just 4.5W in waste heat. OEMs who purchase from this limited binning will be able to include Haswell in even thinner active or passively cooled designs.

Intel has not described exact specifications, partners, or shipping dates.

SDP is a joke, 4.5 SDP means 9-10 watt chip.

We already saw leaked sheet of Intel's Haswell CPU's, 9 watt Haswell will likely to be defeated by AMD's A6 1450 8w Temash.

I just purchased an HP Envy 700-074 because I needed a workstation quick and it was available. For performance, containing 4th Gen i5 and 12GB RAM is great for the Adobe suite and web design. I like Haswell's performance so far. It's a beast.

There is no question that Intel's Core series CPU's out-perform AMD's CPU products. I have notice latency whenever I use an AMD brand CPU. Intel based PC's seem to have a "smoother" performance feel during use. The i5 is a powerful engine even more so with Linux. Intel based PC's and Macs are the way to go.
