Intel Core M processor unveiled at IFA 2014, gives hope for thinner, cooler, and powerful PCs

As a part of the IFA announcement, Intel has discharged points of interest on its new processor lineup which was teased at Computex 2014 – the Intel Core M processor series. Taking into account the 14nm, assembling methodology utilizing tri-gate transistors, Core M, codenamed Broadwell will be gone for fanless 2-in-1 devices with anxiety laid on handling force and graphical abilities.

The new processor range will concentrate on three versatile portions – convertibles, ultra portables, tablets, conveying what Intel says, is the most vitality proficient processor in the company’s history at 4.5W. The vast majority of the exhibitions amid the keynote were alluding to laptop, convertibles and tablets with keyboards alongside few tablets on their own.

“Delivering the optimal blend of mobility and performance, Intel’s new processor was purpose-built for amazing performance in the thinnest, fanless ultra-mobile devices. The Intel Core M processor can power razor-thin devices with Intel Core processor-level performance and deliver up to double the battery life when compared to a 4-year-old system,” says Intel.

The company further explains, “The Intel Core M processor package is 50 percent smaller and, at 4.5 watts, has 60 percent lower thermal power than the previous generation. This lets OEMs design sleek, fanless systems less than 9 mm thin — thinner than an AAA battery and today’s sleekest laptops. There are already more than 20 Intel Core M processor-based OEM products in the development pipeline. The first systems based on the Intel Core M processor will be on shelves for the holiday selling season.”

The firm has managed to make the physical size of the Core M 50% smaller and 30% thinner than that of the equivalent last-generation Haswell chip, which featured 22-nanometre (meaning billionths of a meter), transistors.

Intel also announced that it would provide with a $280 software bundle for SMEs called Small Business Program Partners Software Bundle for selected products.
