Just as NVIDIA teased its new 64-bit Tegra K1 processor just now, Intel has released some information on the development of its new Broadwell-based mobile processor, the Broadwell Core M.




Intel's Broadwell Core M is designed from the ground up for low-power devices such as PC/tablet hybrids with fanless cooling systems. The new processor uses second-generation Tri-gate (FinFET) trnsistors that Intel claims will provide industry-leaving "performance, power, density and cost per transistor". This technology was first used with Intel's 22nm process back in 2011, but is now much better on the smaller 14nm process.


The company's new 14nm process will be "used to manufacture a wide range of high-performance to low-power products including servers, personal computing devices and Internet of Things" according to Intel. Intel has also said that its engineers have achieved more than "two times reduction in the thermal design point" when compared to its previous generation processors. The new Broadwell Core M processor will arrive before the end of the year, with more devices being built around it in the "first half of 2015".
