5th Generation Intel Core Family of Processors Arrive

Today, Intel unveiled the 5th Generation Intel Core processor family. Built on Intel's cutting edge 14nm manufacturing process, the 5th Gen Intel Core processors deliver premium performance, stunning visuals and enables improved battery life to take computing to the next level. The performance also provides the foundation for more natural and interactive experiences with Intel RealSense technology, Intel Wireless Display (Intel WiDi) and voice assistants.

With the "Broadwell" microarchitecture expected to be the fastest mobile transition in company history, offering consumers a broad selection and availability of devices, the 5th Gen Intel Core processors are purpose-built for the next generation of compute devices offering a thin, light and more efficient experience across traditional notebooks, 2 in 1s, Ultrabook devices, Chromebooks, All-In-One desktop PCs and mini PCs.
Intel also started shipping its next generation 14nm processor for tablets, codenamed "Cherry Trail". The new system on a chip will offer new user experiences such as Intel RealSense technology, no wires, no password and Intel Context Aware technology capabilities. New products based on "Cherry Trail" will be introduced starting in the first half of 2015.
For more information on both products, view the 5th Gen Intel Core and Cherry Trail fact sheet.

They have been doing it for quite some time though I completely agree with you on the matter.

They need to have a more consistent naming scheme with their devices as its pretty odd especially when you start getting into the U series of processors.

For me there's no reason to be upgrading from an OC'd Sandy Bridge me thinks, so I'm going to be skipping this gen and wait for Skylake when I upgrade my desktop. But I might actually bite on a Broadwell-powered tablet/notebook if the specs/price ratio is reasonable enough.

You think it be possible to hack\ connect to some ones display output with it being wireless of some sort, i am probably wrong but sounds like another way in to a system.

I think nVidia should step into the game and make Desktop CPUs now that they have experience in the mobile CPU , it would be nice for the market and it results into lower prices for us.
I miss the nforce motherboards...

Good luck getting an x86 License. Unless... they did something like buy up VIA...

If you can successfully connect to your own WiDi you're a damn genius. We trialled it with a Belkin kit and we had a long conversation with Intel. Intel eventually sent us one of their demo Bay trail tablets and it worked horribly. From a mere 10 feet away it would cut out constantly, and was wholly unreliable. Overall not impressed with WiDi, but Bay trail performed quite nicely for the mobile form factor.

I guess the extra 1MB of cache justifies calling it an i7 rather than an i5?

I'm more curious about how the Iris 6100 and 6200 will perfrom. Would like to try out a Brix with one.
