Intel is not just showing off powerful chips which require a 1HP cooler, they are also demonstrating new kit requiring very low power. Their Low Power Display Technology reduces the power consumed by your screen by about 50%, assuming it is powered by Intel graphics. The demonstration was conducted on a Dell XPS 13 and has extended the battery life to 24 hours, with other models capable of reaching 28 hours.
