Intel Details Broadwell 14nm Chips For Macbook

Intel is planning its new Broadwell 14nm chips that are not only more energy efficient but small and light too and even fanless.

Apple has been hard at work, developing revamped Mac laptops for many months now. This includes an ultra-slim 12 inch Retina MacBook. The key to these products is Intel’s upcoming Broadwell chip. This is because the new 14nm Broadwell Core M chip is fanless, small, and according to Intel, the most energy-efficient Intel processor yet. The facts about the processor line-up with MacBook rumors, saying the new computer will be more light an even fanless. Today, Intel has released some points about the Core M Broadwell processor:

  • The combination of the new microarchitecture and manufacturing process will usher in a wave of innovation in new form factors, experiences and systems that are thinner and run silent and cool.

  • Intel architects and chip designers have achieved greater than two times reduction in the thermal design point when compared to a previous generation of processor while providing similar performance and improved battery life.

  • The new microarchitecture was optimized to take advantage of the new capabilities of the 14nm manufacturing process.

  • Intel has delivered the world’s first 14nm technology in volume production. It uses second-generation Tri-gate (FinFET) transistors with industry-leading performance, power, density and cost per transistor.

  • Intel’s 14nm technology will be used to manufacture a wide range of high-performance to low-power products including servers, personal computing devices and Internet of Things.

  • The first systems based on the Intel® Core™ M processor will be on shelves for the holiday selling season followed by broader OEM availability in the first half of 2015.

  • Additional products based on the Broadwell microarchitecture and 14nm process technology will be introduced in the coming months.

As Intel executives have hinted earlier this year, Intel is on track to ship the chips out in time for the new Apple products to be available by the holiday season. The 12 inch MacBook will be one of the first major computers to incorporate these new processors. In the first half of 2015, these chips will be more widespread, meaning we could see the chips in MacBook Pros or MacBook Airs. We look forward to seeing these new chips in use by this holiday season.
