Intel has rolled out a new line of processors that are aimed at tablets called the Core M series. The processors are designed to reduce power consumption and bring more performance to the tablet market. Core M processors are based on the architecture that is used in the Core i3, i5, and i7 line used mostly in laptops and desktops.

Intel says that the processor series will draw less than 10 watts of power. That is a clear distinction between the Core M and Core line of CPUs that draw over 10W. Intel has been showing off the processors inside a 12.5-inch tablet measuring 7.2mm thick and tipping the scales at 672 grams.


The chip inside that prototype tablet is based on the Broadwell microarchitecture. It could also be docked with a keyboard making it into a laptop. Tablets using the new chips will be available later this year.
