2018 MacBook Air: Great Battery Life Joins Newest Intel Amber Lake Processor

Apple's new MacBook Air comes in a Retina display, the eighth-generation Intel processor, the SSDs offers up to 1.5TB in capacity, 16GB of RAM, T2 Security, third-generation Butterfly keyboard, and so on. This MacBook Air also has the best in battery life in the Apple notebook family, it even beats the MacBook Pro and MacBook.

The all-new MacBook Air features a 50.3 watt-hour Lithium Polymer battery for up to 12 hours of wireless web browsing, up to 13 hours of iTunes video playback, and up to 30 days of standby time. In contrast, the MacBook Pro lasts up to 10 hours of wireless web browsing, up to 10 hours of iTunes video playback; MacBooks delivers up to 10 hours of wireless web browsing, up to 12 hours of iTunes video playback.

Speaking to the processors, the MacBook Air is powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz. This processor is different from all of the eighth-generation chips currently announced by Intel. As of now, only one 1.3GHz dual-core processor is listed in the Intel ARK product database.

Based on that, AnandTech suggests (and Intel confirmed) that the new MacBook Air is powered by a chip that Intel has not announced, the 7W Y-series Amber Lake chip or aka Core i5-8210Y. The new MacBook Air now uses a low-power Y-series chip, which means that the performance of the laptop is quite powerful.
