On Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Intel unveiled it’s latest fifth generation Core processor, known as Broadwell-U.The successor to Ivy Bridge, the latest processor overwhelmingly supersedes its predecessor, all while complimenting the existing Core M processors, CPUs specifically designed with mobility in mind!
Broadwell-U are smaller (approximately 37% smaller than its predecessor), but has nearly 35% more transistors, which are semiconductor devices that amplify electronic signals (which means more power). Additionally, according to TechRadar, video conversion has increased by 50%, 3D graphics are up by 22%, and even battery life is up a whopping 90 minutes. The only downside to report is the productivity benchmarks which are showing only a 4% improvement. However, all things considered, the 5th generation is looking great.
The overall improvement on graphics performance, coupled with the processor improvement, will make an incredible gaming experience.
The new generation was created with gamers in mind. The overall improvement on graphics performance, coupled with the processor improvement, will make an incredible gaming experience. DirectX 12 and 4K resolution are guaranteed, even in Wireless Display mode, which will result in a real-feel experience, with the smartsound technology coming as a cherry on the top.
Intel is already preparing to unveil all of the accessories to go with it, including Biometric password capabilities and RealSense. The latest in CPU hardware, it's lightning fast and impressing us all in the benchmarks.
