First Intel Core M chip specs listed online
Intel’s upcoming plans are clear now – in late 2014 the US company will introduce the first Broadwell processors on 14 nm technology but they will be mobile chips only.
Now the first preliminary specs of the upcoming mobile Broadwell chips have become known. As expected they will carry the new Core M moniker and there will be just three models to choose from – the Intel Core M 5Y10, 5Y10a and 5Y70. Two more models will be released in Q1 2015.
All three listed models will come with TDP of just 4 watts. This has been achieved by a significant reduction in the CPU and GPU clock speeds. Still Intel has provided rather high Turbo clock speeds to compensate for the low initial frequency. Thus the Core M 5Y10 and 5Y10a will run at 800 MHz while the integrated GPU will be operating at 100 MHz. These chips will be able to go up to 2 GHz in Turbo mode, while the GPU will be able to run at 800 MHz. The Core M 5Y70 is a special case though – it will run at 1.1 GHz by default and will be able to run at 2.6 GHz in Turbo Mode. The integrated GPU will operate at 100 MHz and at 850 MHz in Turbo mode. In addition to that the chip will support Hyper-Threading, Trusted Execution technology and VPro. All aforementioned Core M chips come with two processing cores and support for DDR3L or LPDDR3 memory.
