Intel Showcases Tablet / 2-in-1 Reference Design based on 14nm “Broadwell” Core M SoC

Intel has unveiled a thin tablet reference design at Computex 2014, in Taiwan, which is based on their upcoming “Broadwell” Core M processor manufactured using 14nm process technology, which will be the most power efficient Intel Core processor to date.

You can also connect it to a media dock providing additional cooling allowing more performance, as well as a keyboard dock. Intel expects 2-in-1 products (tablet + laptop) based on Intel Core M to be available later this year.

Intel claims 60% lower power dissipation, 20 to 40% better performance, and 10 to 45% low SoC power, and half the package footprint compared to third generation “Haswell” Core processors, which will allow fanless and thin designs. Currently Mobile Haswell Core processors have a maximum TDP of 11.5W to 47W, so in theory, at best, Broadwell SoCs might achieve as low as 4.6 W Max TDP.

    I hope we will see these on the market. About time we got some really fanless notebooks….

    I love thin things, like thin girls, thing laptops and now thin tablets.

    And there’s a 10″ version too called “Llama Mountain” -> http://liliputing.com/2014/06/intel-shows-off-llama-mountain-tablet-design-in-2-sizes.html
    Now idea why Intel did not announce both at the same time. it’s really silly.
