Intel revealed the Core M, a new processor class designed for thin 2-in-1 PCs. The first Core M will be based on the 14nm Broadwell architecture and is expected to hit retail shelves towards the end of the year. At Computex, Intel revealed a fanless 12.5" tablet with a Core M processor with a sub-10W TDP.
Regardless, Intel says the series is set to be its most energy-efficient Core processor yet, and that the majority of the hardware running on the chip will be fanless, as well packing hybrid functionality -- which explains why the reference design took the shape it did.
