Intel Introduces Broadwell processors for laptops and desktops




Intel has ten processors of the fifth generation, or Broadwell, added to its product line. It involves five chips for laptops and five desktop models. For the first desktop processors get the Iris Pro GPUs. There are also new Xeons.

Intel Broadwell Early this year and late last year introduced Intel already efficient Broadwell processors; Now there are the more powerful versions for laptops and desktops added . Broadwell is the fifth generation of Intel processors, and produces them at 14nm, where Intel Haswell was still at 22nm. Additionally Broadwell has powerful GPUs with more execution units.

The desktop line Broadwell consists of five processors, the Core i7-5775C is the most powerful. This quad-core is clocked at 3,3GHz with Turbo Boost to 3.8G. Where Haswell desktop chips still a HD Graphics 4600 with 20 eu ‘s had to do possess the Broad Wells Iris Pro 6200 GPU with 48 eu which are clocked once more. Moreover, eDRAM cache is present. All this would have to double to worry so good graphics performance than the previous generation, Intel claims.

There are only two desktop chips with ‘C’ suffix with an unlocked multiplier for the LGA1150 socket; the three ‘R’ variants are soldered to a PGI -voetje and especially for mini-PCs and all-in-ones.

The mobile line of processors for laptops consists of four quad cores as gaming laptops and in addition there is only a Core i5 dual core. All chips for laptops have a TDP of 47W and second, the 7-5700HQ, they have the Intel Pro Iris 6200 graphics. About one or two months to appear the first laptops with the chips on the market.

Finally, Intel Xeon E3-1200 V4 line of data center chips announced. These are also manufactured on 14nm Xeons and feature the Iris Pro P6300 GPU. These GPUs with 48 eu and eDRAM should especially accelerate transcoding video into data centers and the processors are meant primarily for graphics work in data centers.
