New MacBook Air

Good news!

Apple introduced a new 13-inch MacBook Air today. One with a Intel® Haswell i5-4250U (ULT) processor and a faster one with the Intel® Haswell i7-4650U processor. Both with a max TDP of just 15 W. This surely helps to improve battery life – should run all day long now, but I have yet to see if this is true or not.

The max Turbo frequency of the i5-4250U is 200 MHz lower as the previous generation, but it is just as fast. Want to see the GeekBench results? Here they are:
GeekBench 32-bit (MacBookAir6,2)
GeekBench 64-bit (MacBookAir6,1)

More interesting data:

model identifier: MacBookAir6,2
board-id: Mac-7DF21CB3ED6977E5
OS X version: 10.8.4 (Build 12E3067)
iGPU version: Intel® HD graphics 5000

All compiled into RevoBoot and ssdtPRGen. This along with all other Haswell processor data (soon to be pushed into the Githib repository).

p.s. You can pull this version of OS X of off the Apple servers, but I cannot tell you how. Just use the data and… well you know. Recovery mode anyone?


Edit 1: Links to processor specs added.
Edit 2: MacBookAir6,1 data added.

model identifier: MacBookAir6,1
board-id: Mac-35C1E88140C3E6CF

Update: The SMC version info is 2.13f5 (smc-huronriver) and I also noticed a new SMC key BFCL(6) but I have yet to figure out where and what it is used for. Mavericks also reads F0AC and F0Mx.
