battery life 2014 vs 2015

in Current Mac Hardware edited March 2015

So help me with this. The 2015 MB Air has the new Broadwelll chip. Not much else has changed


I understood the Broadwell chip is more efficient on the battery life (by about 90 minutes).


But when I look at the 2014 vs 2015 '13 inch MBA specs- they have the same battery life of 12 hours. Why did it not go up by 90 minutes?


Just curious.

    Broadwell is a minor upgrade to Haswell. Devices such as the Air won't see any major improvement to battery life until Intel's next CPU generation "Skylake" next year.
