Chief River

A codename for Intel Ivy Bridge processors developed specifically for tablet, ultrabook and Mac laptop computers.  Chief River processors are designed to succeed the "Huron River" Sandy Bridge processors used in earlier ultrabook models, and offer native support for USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt.

Additional requirements for Chief River ultrabooks include a minimum battery life of 5 hours, at least 16GB of SSD storage and the ability to "wake up" in less than seven seconds.  Recommendations beyond the specified requirements include touch screen support, WiDi, GPS, an accelerometer, and an ambient light sensor (ALS) and proximity sensor.
