When Intel gave us a the real deep-dive look at their new 14nm Broadwell Core M series processor, back in August, we left hopeful of great things coming to ultra-light notebooks and premium 2-in-1 tablet devices. Intel's low power 14nm Tri-Gate architecture coupled with an enhanced integrated graphics core, offered the promise of "fanless"...
Dell has re-introduced the Venue 11 Pro 7000 tablet but this time with a new processor that offers a more mainstream performance but with the lower power level required of a tablet. Intel has just released the Core M processor, part of its Broadwell series of processors generally used for laptops and laptop/tablet hybrids. Show More Summary
Moving up the Xeon product stack, the larger and more complicated the die, the lower the yield. Intel sells its 14-18 core Xeons from a top end design that weighs in at over six billion transistors, and we have had two of the 14C models in for review: the E5-2695 V3 (2.3 GHz, 3.3 GHz turbo) and E5-2697 V3 (2.6 GHz, 3.6 GHz turbo).
Intel has announced its upcoming Knights Hill Many Integrated Core product is coming on 10nm technology. The third-generation Xeon Phi should further expand the capabilities of the family with 50 or more cores and over 16GB of on-card memory.
PC players gearing up for the launch of Far Cry 4 in a few weeks will need an Intel Core i5-750 (2.6 GHz) or AMD Phenom II X4 955 (3.2 GHz) processor and 4 GB of memory. The game also required 30 GB of hard drive space and a video card at least as...
This article, aimed at developers, will provide a glimpse into this 64-bit, multi-core SOC processor, and gives an overview of the available Intel® technologies, including Intel® HD Graphics 5300.
As part of our Haswell-EP coverage, the next two processors on our test beds are both 12 core variants. The E5-2650L V3 is a surprising monster, giving 12 Haswell cores at 1.8 GHz with 2.5 GHz turbo for only 65W, while the E5-2690 V3 extends the power budget to 135W for all 12 cores at a 2.6 GHz base frequency.
The Intel Core M processor rollout has begun with much less fanfare than the Haswell rollout—the generation-over-generation improvements in efficiency and performance just aren’t as drastic this time around, as Intel still needs to figure out the 14 nm die shrink. Show More Summary
Dell has a new tablet coming out this month using Intel's new Broadwell-based processor. The Venue 11 Pro can be used like a laptop, like Microsoft's Surface Pro, thanks to a…
Planning to buy Dragon Age: Inquisition for the PC (Origin only, No Steam =()? Check out the game’s system requirements below: Minimum: OS: Windows 7 or 8.1, 64-bit Processor (AMD): Quad core @ 2.5 GHz Processor (Intel): Quad core @ 2.0 GHz Memory: 4 GB Graphics Card (AMD): Radeon HD 4870 Graphics Card (NVIDIA): GeForce […]
A closer look at what Apple's potential chip choices for the next MacBook Air.
Apple is widely expected to launch a smaller, thinner, fanless 12-inch Retina MacBook Air laptop next year, and it may feature a design made possible by Intel’s Core M “Broadwell” processor the chipmaker launched this year. CPU World...Show More Summary
Since Computex, there has been a lot of talk around Intel’s Broadwell-Y / Core-M CPU line. In August Intel treated us to a breakdown of the 14nm process and the Broadwell architecture including all the improvements therein, followed by a more succinct breakdown of the CPUs we should expect.

While Intel's next-generation Broadwell processors for most Macs are not shipping until early 2015 or even later, the company began shipping some ultra low-power Broadwell chips known as Core M a couple of months ago. These chips are...Show More Summary
Intel's new Broadwell has gone under the microscope at chipworks, and the firm has certified that Intel's new core hits its metrics. Broadwell is a full 14nm shrink.
Here's why Apple probably won't use Intel's Core M processor inside its next MacBook Air.
The first reviews of the Lenovo Core M-powered Yoga 3 Pro have hit the market, but they're anything but encouraging. It's not clear that the problem is actually with Intel's chip, but the end result is disappointing.
All the recent talk of Haswell-E and high-end refreshes has obscured the more casual computing market. The Bay Trail platform uses Intel’s Atom based Silvermont cores and competes directly against AMD’s Kabini for integrated computing, digital signage and cheap computing models. Show More Summary
Marco Arment: Intel’s next CPU cores (Broadwell) are significantly delayed, so in the meantime, they released a few more high-end Haswell models. The Retina iMac’s 4 GHz option is the Core i7-4790K, which is currently the fastest CPU...Show More Summary
During September we managed to get hold of some Haswell-EP samples for a quick run through our testing suite. The Xeon E5 v3 range extends beyond that of the E5 v2 with the new architecture, support for DDR4 and more SKUs with more cores. Show More Summary
