Intel announces Apollo Lake processors

Intel has announced a new CPU generation at the on-going IDF 2016 event. The new chips are called Apollo Lake and come with a number of energy-efficient features that will make them especially suitable for use in cheap notebooks, tablets and even in the Intel Compute Stick device.

The Apollo Lake processors will be based on the so-called Goldmont architecture and will be made on 14 nm tech process. Compared to the Airmont architecture, Goldmont will come with increased processing power as well as an improved integrated GPU. The new chips will also support various new codecs including HEVC and will use DDR3L memory or even the new LPDDR4 memory. The chips will be able to work with 4 GB modules and will include a number of interfaces too that will allow them to work with M.2 SSDs and various eMMC devices.

As you can see the Apollo Lake chips will not be performance processors but they should do just fine in cheap devices. Intel says the new processors will appear in Q3 2016 with mass production expected in Q2 2016, which happens to be now.
