Intel’s Apollo Lake to retire Braswell next year

Just a day after we learned Intel plans to introduce Kaby Lake chips next year instead of the 10 nm Cannonlake generation we have found something else too – next year Intel will also retire its current Braswell platform in favor of a new one called Apollo Lake.

Intel Apollo Lake

Apollo Lake will include chips made with the latest 14 nm production process and will include Skylake’s integrated graphics core. Moreover the new low power chips will boast support for both DDR3L and DDR4L memory so there will be some flexibility when it comes to memory. Apollo Lake will include cores on the Goldmont architecture and the integrated GPU will include 18 execution units. The chips will also have support for DisplayPort 1.2a and HDMI 1.4b but there’s no information on HDMI 2.0 support or USB 3.1 support, although the chips will have native support for USB 3.0.

The first Apollo Lake processors will appear in May 2016.
