Windows tablets will be thinner than Air based on the new Intel 5th Gen Core M processors
At COMPUTEX, Intel revealed more information about their next gen Core product codenamed Broadwell. It will be the first 14-nanometer chip from Intel. Currently, Intel tablets use a 22nn processor that needs a cooling fan.
To demonstrate the Core M, Intel revealed the world’s first 14nm fanless mobile PC reference design from Intel is a 12.5 inch screen that is 7.2mm thin with keyboard detached and weighs 670 grams.
The current king of lightness and air is the iPad Air slightly thicker at 7.5 mm with a 9.7&Prime screen. The iPad Air runs iOS apps and the Core M 2-1′s run all Windows 8.1 programs.
It is based on the first of Intel’s next-generation 14nm Broadwell processors, purpose-built for 2 in 1s and will be in market later this year.
Intel also announced 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 and i5 processor “K” SKU, the first from Intel to deliver four cores at up to 4 GHz base frequency. It will provide higher performance and enable new levels of overclocking capability that will serve power users. From Microsoft News.
