Intel’s fanless mobile PC reference design is 7.2mm thin and uses Core M 14nm processor.

Posted on 03 June 2014 By



Intel are currently presenting on stage at Computex. The press-release reveals what’s about to be demonstrated.

The world’s first 14nm fanless mobile PC reference design from Intel is a 12.5 inch screen that is 7.2mm thin with keyboard detached and weighs 670 grams. The innovative design is based on the first of Intel’s next-generation 14nm Broadwell processors, purpose-built for 2 in 1s and will be in market later this year. Called the Intel® Core™ M processor, it will deliver the most energy efficient Core processor in the company’s history.

So it looks like the days of the U-series processor are over. Perhaps the Y-series too. More importantly it looks like ASUS have used the Intel reference design in their Transformer Book Chi product. Both have a 12.5-inch screen. Both use the ‘next-generation’ Intel core. One is 7.3mm thick, the other is 7.2mm thick. OK, maybe the casing is different!

Update: The reference device is known as Llama Mountain.

    I wonder if Intel’s Broadwell delays (now 1st qtr 2015) is the reason Microsoft got agressive with their Surface Pro 3 launch schedule.

    It’s been confirmed that Core M is replacing the Core i U and Y parts? Also, this naming could be confused with the current M series chips under the Core i brand. I guess it’s going to be Atom, Core M and Core i?
