Windows 7: Intel launches 5th-generation 'Broadwell' processors

Intel launches 5th-generation 'Broadwell' processors

Intel has just announced its 5th generation Intel Core processors, also known as Broadwell, at CES 2015. The new chips are 37% smaller than the previous generation, using Intel's new 14nm process. Intel emphasizes the performance gains in Broadwell, especially battery life improvements. Intel says that battery life could improve by as much as 1.5 hours. The chips also enable faster wake times and improved graphics performance.

The 5th generation chips are also designed with Internet-connected devices and more immersive experiences, such as voice interactions with your devices, in mind. The new lineup includes the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i5 vPro, Core i7, and Core i7 vPro. There are also new Celeron and Pentium processors based on the 14nm process, as well as 14nm chips for tablets, with the codename of Cherry Trail. Cherry Trail devices are expected some time in the first half of this year.

Can you imagine how small 14nm is. And power consumption between 15W and 28W is fantastic. That will make AMD's 100W and 125W CPUs look really old.

It's the "Tick".

From Wikipedia:
"Broadwell is Intel's codename for the 14 nanometer die shrink of its Haswell microarchitecture. It is a "tick" in Intel's tick-tock principle as the next step in semiconductor fabrication.
Unlike the previous tick-tock iterations, Broadwell will not completely replace the full range of CPUs from the previous microarchitecture (Haswell), as there will be no low-end desktop CPUs based on Broadwell. Broadwell will be used in conjunction with Intel 9 Series chipsets (Z97 and H97)"
