Intel promises at least four hours of longer battery life with 1W screen panels




Intel has developed a screen panel of 1W together with the screen manufacturers Sharp and Innolux. In cooperation with other techniques, Intels Low Power Display technology should lead to a battery life that is four to eight hours longer.

Intel announced its Low Power Display during the Computex 2018. The company demonstrated a Dell XPS 13 with screen technology, which had a battery life of 25 hours and 14 minutes, measured during continuous video playback. That same laptop would have a battery life of 20 hours without the technology.

Intel also claims to have measured a battery life of 28 hours, with a system with a Core i7-8550U with UHD 620-gpu, Intel 600p-ssd and Windows 10. This was also about playing a video, with a screen brightness of 150cd / m².

The systems use a full-HD screen that Intel developed together with Innolux and Sharp. The companies would have reduced the consumption of such a screen from 2W to 1W. Details about the Low Power Display technology did not give the companies further, but no concessions were made regarding the quality.

It is expected that Intel will advise the specification to manufacturers of laptops and that there will be cooperation with Intel’s processor-integrated gpu. It is not the first time Intel has worked with screen manufacturers to reduce the consumption of screens: in the past, Intel developed the Panel Self Refresh technology, which LG used in 2011. The laptop stores the last shown frame in memory in the screen. In the case of a static image, the system can show this frame and bring the GPU into an energy-efficient state more quickly and more often.
