    Default Intel Announces its All-new Fifth-generation Broadwell Processors

    Intel has announced its all-new lineup of Intel Core processors on Monday under the codename of Broadwell. These new processors are built on a 14nm process and are made slim enough for even today's slimmest notebook computers, such as Apple's MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.

    Intel explains that the new processor lineup gives machines a boost in performance and excellent graphics capabilities, all while keeping power consumption down to offer great battery life on notebook computers.

The performance also provides the foundation for more natural and interactive experiences with Intel® RealSense™ technology, Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi) and voice assistants. With the “Broadwell” microarchitecture expected to be the fastest mobile transition in company history, offering consumers a broad selection and availability of devices, the 5th Gen Intel Core processors are purpose-built for the next generation of compute devices offering a thin, light and more efficient experience across traditional notebooks, 2 in 1s, Ultrabook™ devices, Chromebooks, All-In-One desktop PCs and mini PCs.
    Anandtech has created a chart that outlines the specs of each of the new U-series fifth-generation Broadwell processors, which we've included for you below:

    Intel also tells us that they have begun shipping their Cherry Trail mobile processors for mobile devices on Monday, which are intended for mobile devices, such as tablets. These processors include Intel's RealSense feature and products taking advantage of these new mobile processors will be launched in the early half of 2015.

    Heh, I just got done reading an article about this. Seems that Broadwell has suffered production problems and is here late. Turns out a lot of PC manufacturers are just going to skip it and go with the next chip on the roadmap, Skyline.

    I think they both use a 14nm design, which is insane. My current PC has a 45nm chip in it.
