Intel updates requirements for Ultrabook devices following Haswell launch Just days after it began shipping its 4th-generation Core series processors (Haswell), the company has also updated its requirements for Ultrabook devices.
Thanks to the huge power efficiency boost of Haswell processors, the baseline requirements to get certified have been increased.

Ultrabooks must include better graphics performance, battery life of 9 hours while idle, 6 hours of HD video playback and also 7 days of standby.

Additionally, the company has broken down ultrabooks into four different variants; Responsive, Mobile, Stylish and Protected. (Pictured)
