Intel Corp. has already started to ship its Core M microprocessors based on the Broadwell micro-architecture for ultra-low-power notebooks, 2-in-1s and tablets. According to a new media report, the company will introduce its Core i3/i5-i7 central processing units made using 14nm process technology for mainstream mobile PCs at the Consumer Electronics Show in early 2015.
Chinese VR-Zone reports that the world’s largest chipmaker will roll-out 17 new central processing units powered by the Broadwell-U core in January. The list of chips will include various models that will be sold under Core i3/i5-i7, Pentium and Celeron brands. It is logical to assume that PC makers will demonstrate their laptops based on the new microprocessors from Intel at the CES 2015 as well.
As reported, Broadwell-U (BDW-U) microprocessors feature two cores with HT, new-generation Intel graphics cores, 2MB, 3MB or 4MB of cache, dual-channel DDR3 DRAM controller as well as integrated core-logic. It is noteworthy that thermal design power of all Broadwell-U processors will be just 15W, which will allow makers of notebooks to offer very energy-efficient laptops even based on Celeron or Pentium processors.
Intel did not comment on the news-story.

KitGuru Says: While the Broadwell processors have been delayed a number of times, it looks like they will still be successful on the market thanks to ultra-low power consumption, a result of very efficient micro-architecture and 14nm process technology.
