Low powered Broadwell devices will come soon

Modern day computing has been ‘Innovative’. People have always fascinated for superior devices which are not bulky and looks good. Processing power , size of device and heating issues have always troubled a mid-ranged device user.Keeping these in mind Intel released new details on its next-generation 14-nanometer Broadwell processors, which are designed to combine high-performance and low power to allow for more efficient devices. Haswell ushered in an era of impressively long battery life, which is expected to improve even further with Broadwell.Intel beieves Broadwell will usher in “new form factors” with systems that are thinner and run both silently and cool, with two times reduction in thermal design point.

Intel Core M


The 14-nanometer Broadwell-Y Core M chip will be the first of the Broadwell processors to hit the market, with retailers releasing Core M devices in the fall. Designed specifically for low power devices such as two-in-one tablet/computer hybrids, the Core M’s low wattage allows for fanless operation and its smaller physical size means it can fit comfortably in devices that are “razor-thin.”

Rumours says that Apple is working on a 12-inch Retina MacBook that has a slimmer form factor than the existing MacBook Air and a fanless design that aligns with some of the properties of the Core M Broadwell chip.


Intel’s Core M processors are expected to ship during the 2014 holiday season, with additional Broadwell chips becoming available in early and mid-2015. The first devices utilizing Core M processors will be shipping before the end of the year.
