Bit Tech spreads word that Intel is getting its 14nm node under control as the company just launched four additional Core M "Broadwell" processors:
Now, Intel appears to be finally getting to grips with the challenges of 14nm and has announced four more Core M processors featuring improved specifications over those originally released. The Core M-5Y10c sits above the M-5Y10 with a boosted 300MHz minimum graphics clock but otherwise identical 2GHz two-core four-thread setup. The Core M-5Y31 sits above both with a 900MHz core processor clock boosting to 2.4GHz and an 850MHz peak GPU frequency. The Core M-5Y51 is more impressive yet, boasting a 1.1GHz core and 2.6GHz turbo CPU frequency and 900MHz graphics, while the range tops out at the Core M-5Y71 - an upgrade from the 1.1GHz Core M-5Y70 - with a 1.2GHz base and 2.9GHz turbo CPU clock. All models maintain the same 4.5W thermal design profile as their predecessors.
Broadwell-based desktop processors are expected to follow in Q1 2015.
