Chipzilla has announced four new and slightly upgraded models for its first series of 14 nm products, which has already raised some eyebrows following Performence Less than those of previous generations, which were observed in initial audits
Intel's new Core M processor family, Which it first introduced earlier this year, stunned us when it managed to compress full Core architecture (two cores, Intel 8 Graphics Core) into an 4.5 Watt thermal shell only thanks to a breakthrough 14 nanometer production process. The significance of the move was clear - full and real window devices that would be as thin, light, economical and quiet as their chip-based competitors ARM.
Our anticipation of the arrival of Core M-based products has been very high, but recent reports have begun to come with not-so-encouraging reports that every trick has a limit and such a massive minimization of the thermal mantle also has a fair amount - which has been manifested by extremely aggressive frequency restrictions and surprising performance For the worse, it has even made it very difficult to do some very basic things, especially UltraBok Yoga Pro 3 of Lenovo Which was thecore The first M landed by various visitors.
Now showing Intel Four new modelscore M generationbroadwell, Which are joined by the three original models - perhaps with a view to correcting some of the noticeable shortcomings in the performance aspect. The new models are identical to those previously announced in all features except the cores work frequencies, and here comes the seemingly big change in the 300MHz base frequency to the graphical core in all new models - compared to the 100MHz base frequency only in the original models which supposedly resulted in interrupted movie performance as actions Video, Scrolling sites in a browser, and so forth.
The improvement in the working frequencies should provide more balanced and reasonable performance, although it is not yet clear what led to the ability to increase the speeds as the new models offer identical thermal envelopes to those of the current models (4.5 Watts as a base), with dynamic adaptability of 3.5 watts to 6 watts accordingly To select the manufacturer). In other words, it is not clear whether the amplified frequencies are due to higher-quality chips that go down the new production lines at 14 nanometers or is it another compromise Intel - A compromise that may come back to bite users in the backside.
CPUscore M will be available for PC makers this quarter, so first-hand products will only land sometime in early next year in what will be the second wave of handsets broadwell After the end of the year.
The Intel Core M processors are undoubtedly an engineering marvel, one that actually works and brings Intel another big step towards eliminating the biggest comparative advantage of the architecture of Intel,ARM Across its products - the biggest question right now is just how much users will need to flex to enjoy a tablet PC skin wrapped in a tablet Android או iOS.
