Intel Announces efficient 14nm processors for laptops




Intel has its fifth generation Core processors for laptops announced. The first batch of Core processors manufactured on 14nm should bring laptops to better performance and longer battery life. It involves fourteen processors.

Broadwell is the fifth generation of Intel Core processors and unlike Haswell chips are not at 22nm, but produced in 14nm. That production is on schedule, Intel, claims and it would even go to the fastest transition to a new production in the history of the company. This Intel is sure to take away that production is disappointing. Intel had Broadwell past delay due to problems with the 14nm production. The first Broadwell chips incidentally were the m Core chips for tablets and thin and light laptops, which appeared late 2014.

Intel claims that Broadwell delivers longer battery life in laptops. In conjunction with Windows 8.1 include the battery life in idle mode and when playing video better, claims the manufacturer. Intelligent Throttling for the I / O and other adjustments in the field of energy management should ensure this, in addition to smaller production process of the chips. In addition, leads to an improved DSP on the PCH to more efficient audio decoding.

The new chip generation must give several other Intel technologies a boost, such as Intel Real Sense, a camera system that allows, among other Gesture Command and 3D scanning. Broadwell would also better equipped to handle the algorithms for voice recognition and includes the introduction of chip generation with the release of v5.1 Wireless Display, which offers improvements in the field of management and security and fullscreen mode games.

The major performance improvements can be found graphically. Broadwell marks the advent of the integrated HD Graphics 5500 graphics chip and the powerful Iris Graphics 6100 variant. The GPUs support display of 4K material, provide efficient decoding vp8-, vp9- hevc and videos, and convert images faster by Intel Quick Sync. The GPU’s are according to Intel DirectX 12-ready.

In January come from all major manufacturers laptops with Broadwell chips available. In the first half of 2015 are also the powerful Broadwell chips for laptops with a TDP of 45W and the desktop versions, while this year also have to appear the first processors based on Skylake successor.
