Battery life has always been a hurdle for mobile devices. The more highly configured laptops, the more so. However, on the Computex 2018, Intel announced an exciting solution that is expected to increase notebook life by 4 to 8 hours. Its full name is "low power display technology" (LPDT), which combines a special LCD display with clever energy management measures. Take the 13-inch Sharp / Innolux screen for Intel's demonstration as an example, its power consumption is cut off by half (only 1W).
Depending on the actual usage, LPDT is expected to increase battery life by 4 to 8 hours.
Currently, there are already ultra-portable devices that support 20-hour playback. With LPDT technology, users can finally achieve 28-hour battery life.
For example, Intel modified a Dell XPS 13 notebook to increase its battery life from 20 hours to 25+, and confidently produced a time-lapse photography video. As for energy management improvements, the company did not disclose more details.
It should be pointed out that the difference between the video presentation and the actual daily experience is still quite large. In addition, the demonstration model uses Intel's own nuclear display, not the third party alone.
