Intel introduces first Broadwell processors for laptops




Intel has introduced its latest generation of processors during the IFA in Berlin. This Broadwell-generation Haswell follows and will be used in ultra-efficient laptops and tablets first. The processors are identified by the name Core M.

The M-Core generation was formally introduced by Intel Friday, but during the IFA fair showed various manufacturers their products with a Core M processor al.’s Core M-series is based on Intel’s latest processor design codenamed Broadwell. That is to 14nm scaled down version of Haswell, produced on 22nm. The smaller transistors Broadwell must, along with a special thereon keen design, ensuring highly efficient processors. The TDP’s latest-generation Core processors M amounts whatsoever maximum 4.5W.

Although the first products have already shown three processors and Intel announces it will until the end of this year, the actual availability of tablets and laptops with Core should be. M processors waiting Manufacturers then have the choice of three models, two of which are almost identical. The top model, the 5Y70 who receives a standard clock speed of 1.1GHz with turbo to 2.6GHz. The 5Y10a and 5Y10 are both 0,8GHz turbo clocked at 2GHz, but the 5Y10 can be configured with a slightly lower TDP. By default, all M-Core processors a TDP of 4.5W. That should allow them completely passive cooling. Very efficient laptops can therefore be thinner and lighter.
Core M-model Cores / threads Clock Gpu GPU overclocks L3 cache TDP
5Y70 2/4 1.1GHz / 2.6GHz HD 5300 100Mhz / 850MHz 4MB 4.5W
5Y10a 2/4 0,8GHz / 2GHz HD 5300 100Mhz / 800 4MB 4.5W
5Y10 2/4 0,8GHz / 2GHz HD 5300 100Mhz / 800 4MB 4.5W (4W possible)

The Broadwell chips are manufactured on 14nm and positioned. Together with the pch, the former southbridge on a single chip package This PCB is almost half the size of the “near-socs” Haswell processors. The pch features include USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, SATA-600 ports and PCI-Express lanes. The GPU is a significant part of the chips and shares 4MB L3 cache with the CPU cores. The smaller production process batteries would significantly longer to go, while the chips despite lower clock speeds and lower TDP on Intel’s benchmarks still have to perform better. Note The reality, however, is of course closely linked to the chosen comparison and benchmarks.
