IDF13: Intel Showcases 14nm Broadwell CPU Powered Laptop and Haswell-Y – Broadwell Chips To Ship By End of 2013

Intel kicked off this years IDF13 in San Francisco by showing off a demo of their latest and upcoming 14nm Broadwell CPU/SOC (System on Chip). Intel also confirmed
during the event that the 14nm Broadwell processors would start
shipping by the end of this year and Broadwell based laptops would start
shipping in 2014.

Intel Showcases 14nm Broadwell CPU Powered Laptop and Haswell-Y

In addition to the 14nm Broadwell SOC, Intel also showcased their
latest 22nm Haswell-Y chips which are based on the 3D Tri-gate
transistors architecture. The new Haswell-Y processors have a max power
consumption of 4.5 Watts which mean it would be used to deliver fanless
mobile solutions such as laptops and slate-tablets which are high in demand
at the moment. Haswell has already showed its power in the desktop and
mobile sector and it will do the same when equipped inside these
low-power devices delivering users a true x86 experience.

But the most exciting part about the whole conference was that Intel
is definitely going to bring Broadwell early next year which shows that
there are no delays between the new micro architecture as previously
rumored and Intel’s Tick-Tock strategy still remains strong. SoCs are
quickly becoming a powerful rival in today’s market, with Avaton
targeting high efficiency low power server market the Atom Cherry Trail
and Bay Trail are designed for mobile devices. With that in mind
delivering graphical performance is a must and with Airmont and
Broadwell GPU Architecture the Cherry Trail SoC will not disappoint. We
expect the processing power to graphic power ratio to be near that of
AMD’s APUS. Cherry Trail is expected to debut in Q3 2014. Broadwell
would deliver 30 percent power improvement on battery longevity as
compared to Haswell.
Intel’s Broadwell U/H/Y series mobile chips and the desktop chips would be compatible with the Z97 and H97
chipsets which would offer support for SATA Express and new set of
utilities to deliver a better experience and performance to consumers.
Expect more news on Broadwell in the upcoming months.
