Intel to reduce Chromium’s power consumption on Windows 10

15

The Chromium platform is the king of the web browsing market.
However, Chromium-based Chrome has the reputation of being a
power-hungry browser on Windows devices.

If you feel the Chrome browser in your laptop is draining the
battery, then we have good news for you—Intel is working with
Chromium engineers on power consumption improvements for the
Chromium platform.

According to Intel, some of their latest processors such as Ice
Lake support ‘RGB10 overlay’. Intel says it’s working on a new
feature for Chromium will allow HDR videos to be played through
this processor-based technology to provide better power
performance.

“Intel platforms since Icelake begin to support outputting HDR
content through its ovelay tech with RGBA10 format. Enable this
feature would provide better energy performance on devices
based on Icelake or above,” Intel engineer said.

With over 2 billion installs, there is no doubt that Chromium
browsers are ruling the browser market and this is a
much-needed improvement. Intel has already started working on
it, but the feature is unlikely to show up anytime soon.

Chrome and Edge updates paused

Google recently announced that it won’t ship Chrome 81 because
of the pandemic and the search engine giant has decided to skip
Chrome 82 as well.

Google’s next planned release is Chrome 83 and Google’s
decision also has the same impact on other Chromium-based
browsers, including Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft is also delaying feature update for its Edge browser
and only security updates will be shipped for now.
