Intel has released two power frugal haswell processors today. First is the Intel celeron 2980U which has a TDP of 15 watts and judging by that, it will be used in cheap ultra thin laptops and ultrabooks. It has dual core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz and has unspecified GPU. Since, it is a mere Celeron CPU, it has 2MB of L3 cache.
Second is Intel Core i5 4300U, which has same TDP as 2980U but packs much more power inside. It has dual core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz but can achieve 2.9 GHz if required. The CPU supports hyperthreading and turbo boost). CPU Benchmarks will be made available soon.
