Intel: ‘Skylake’ to consume 60% less energy than ‘Broadwell’

Intel Core M “Broadwell” processors already feature impressively low power consumption, but the upcoming Core M “Skylake” chips will sport not only all-new micro-architecture, but also even lower power consumption, according to an excerpt from Intel’s document.

Manufacturers of notebooks and high-performance tablets will be able to make their devices thinner and lighter because Core M “Skylake” system-on-chips will feature up to 60 lower power consumption compared to current-gen Core M SoCs. Despite lower power consumption the new Core M chips will feature 50 per cent faster Iris Pro graphics core thanks to increased number of stream processors, according to an image published at AnandTech forums.

Devices based on Intel Core M “Skylake” chips will support wireless charging as well as WiGig wireless connectivity. Select devices based on Intel’s new system-on-chip will also feature Intel’s 4G/LTE modem.


“Skylake” microprocessors are expected to be announced in the fourth quarter of this year. Unfortunately, it is highly likely that availability of the new chips will be limited this year.

Intel did not comment on the news-story.

KitGuru Says: Looks like systems powered by Intel Core M “Skylake” will be very impressive not only because of wireless charging and WiGig support, but also because of longer battery life and thinner designs.
