On Thursday, Intel confirmed that the company has planned to work around to solve a minor bug, which ultimately kills out some battery life in the Windows 10 machines. An Intel spokesman said, once the issue has been resolved, the battery level of the Windows 10 machines will become equal to the Windows 8 machines.
Just a few days to Windows 10 launch, Intel, Microsoft and various app developers are working constantly to fix the bug and also to finalize the drivers. Microsoft has issued an update for the Intel’s GPU, but in turn, it failed to update for many people. Both the giants are consistently working hard for the Windows 10, which is scheduled to hit the market shortly. The several combinations of different new drivers, software, and hardware from these two giants might rectify the bug present in the device, and in the meanwhile, all of the parties are very busy in fixing the bugs.
An Intel spokesman said in an email as,
“Intel and Microsoft are working to optimize drivers for battery performance on Windows 10 across Intel platforms. While we are working on technical optimizations, we have seen very minor hits to battery life but even the upper end of what we have seen is below 10 percent. Do know that we expect battery life on Windows 10 systems to be nearly the same as on Windows 8.1 systems once the final Windows 10 drivers have been updated and released.”
Microsoft offered this oblique statement in return:
“A benefit of delivering Windows 10 as a service means we continue to offer ongoing innovations and security updates, continuously improving Windows 10.”
As for now, Microsoft has frozen the Coding part, and no builds will be expected until the launch day. It seems that, on the “day 0” itself, there will be an enormous software update will be rolled out for the devices, both via Microsoft Windows Update and via Microsoft Store too.
As we all know, several bugs were fixed in the early stage of Windows 10 development phase and also during beta versions. But, “day 0” will certainly include a firmware update for the Intel based personal computers, and also for laptops. Still, it’s not sure – whether the bug will be fixed at that time or not.
