First details of Broadwell Y: 4.5W TDP for mobile devices
While it looks like Intel’s next architecture, codenamed Broadwell with a 14nm manufacturing process, will come to desktops, at least initially, in its multiplier-unlocked “K” version, it looks like it will also roll out all of its potential in the growing mobile device market.
In CPU-World they have filtered the data of three models Intel Core M based on this architecture, specifically are the models Core M 5Y10, 5Y10a and 5Y70, all of them with two cores and two threadsminus the last one added hyperthreading to get to 4 threads.
Operating speeds range from 800MHz up to 1.1GHz base, reaching 2 and 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost. In addition, they integrate a GPU that works from 100 to 800-850 MHz depending on the model. However, the most interesting thing is its maximum TDP (it is configurable and reducible at the manufacturer’s option), in all cases 4.5 W, which will result in low temperatures for passive systems such as ultra-thin tablets. It will be necessary to see if that TDP is finally maintained or we are talking about the SDP used by Intel and AMD to represent the typical consumption, or more usual, with a normal use of the device
Also includes memory support Low Voltage DDR3with a maximum speed of 1600 MHz, we will also have VT-d virtualization, and support for vPro and Trusted Execution instructions in the most powerful model.
Its arrival on the market is expected during the first quarter of 2015.
