Intel Releases New Lineup of Broadwell Processors

Intel opened 2015 with a fresh lineup of Broadwell U-series microprocessors engineered for light and thin notebooks, 2-in-1 hybrids, and all-in-one systems. These chips are based on a 14 nm technology, which Intel describes as ultra-fast transistors that improve performance and reduce leakage power.” The lineup does feature models with low power consumption of 15 Watt or 28 Watt, higher clock speeds, and graphics processing unit (GPU) of up to Iris 6100.

The Celerons and the Pentium models in the series do not support Hyper-Threading technology (HT technology). Their thermal design power (TDP) is 15W, although they can be configured to work within a 10W power envelope.

The Core i3s have clock speeds of up to 2.1 GHz. They also use larger L3 cache and allow Intel’s HT technology.

Core i5 and i7 models incorporate Turbo Boost technology and vPro features and boasta higher speeds, lower configurable TDPs, and greater GPUs over all.
