Intel Debuts with 5th Gen Core Mobile CPUs

Within the confines of CES 2015, Intel has officially introduced the fifth generation of Intel Core mobile processors. The lineup is targeting traditional laptops, ultrabooks, 2-in-1 devices, chrome-books, all-in-one items as well as mini-PCs. Besides, the company pin hopes for their CPUs to be additionally implemented within ‘All-inclusive Internet/Internet of Things’ embedded device concept.

New processors are designed according to 14-nm Intel Broadwell architecture. Due to the transition to a brand new technological process, the number of transistors has increased by 35%; herewith, the core area has reduced by 37%. Such innovative move provided for the enhancement of efficiency with simultaneous cut of power consumption. As a result, devices with the integrated Intel Core CPUs are called to run 1.5 hours longer in standalone mode.
