IFA 2014: Intel Core M processor promises 50% faster compute performance

Intel launched the new Intel Core M processor, promising 50 percent faster compute performance and 40 percent faster graphics performance.

PC makers such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Toshiba will power their new 2 in 1 devices using the Intel Core M processor.

The company, announcing this at IFA 2014 in Berlin, shared several key benefits of Intel Core M processor.

Intel Core M processor can deliver up to double the battery life when compared to a 4-year-old system.

The Intel Core M processor enables up to 50 percent faster compute performance and 40 percent faster graphics performance versus the comparable, previous 4th generation Intel Core processor.

Intel Core M processor delivers up to two times the compute performance and up to seven times better graphics compared to a 4- year-old PC.

Intel Core M processor can handle more than 8 hours of video play, which is up to 20 percent (1.7 hours) longer battery life versus the previous-generation Intel Core processor and double the battery life of the average 4-year-old PC.

The Intel Core M processor package is 50 percent smaller and, at 4.5 watts, has 60 percent lower thermal power than the previous generation.

This lets OEMs design sleek, fanless systems less than 9 mm thin – thinner than an AAA battery and today’s sleekest laptops. There are already more than 20 Intel Core M processor-based OEM products in the development pipeline. The first systems based on the Intel Core M processor will be on shelves for the holiday selling season.
