The first computers with Intel Broadwell (5th-generation Core) processors are just starting to arrive, and most Broadwell chips won’t be ready until early 2015. But Intel is already working on the processors that will replace Broadwell.

Skylake processors will use as little as 4 watts (for the next-gen Core M processor), but most laptop chips in the U series will use 15W to 28W. They’ll all feature next-generation Intel graphics.

  1. You know an Intel product is bad when they advertise how little power it uses. I am not saying power consumption is not important, just that Intel doesn’t have significant performance/feature changes since sandy bridge. The talk about power when they have nothing else.

    1. You do realize Broadwell shaved 2 cycles off floating point multiply and divide instructions (from 5 to 3), thus shaving 40% of the time to do scientific computing, right? Intel already has the performance crown in the CPU arena with more compute resources per core than AMD by far. Now they’re boosting iGPU so AMD’s HSA is a manageable threat, hence the promise of 2 teraflops of iGPU performance on Broadwell’s highest SKU.

      Having the performance Intel has leaves little room to do more on the CPU side but shave clock cycles off existing instructions. Now it’s all about taking computing into never before seen form factors.

  2. You can also get the Acer Chromebox with keyboard and mouse and better CPU for $179.
    Better deal for better product!
