Soon awaits us premiere of processors from Intel Braswell series, which will replace the current generation of the Bay Trail. Later this quarter, there will be versions for laptops and after one quarter for desktop. What can we expect from new candies?
Desktop Pentium N3700 Braswell comes in Q2 15
Braswell processors will be done in 14-nanometer lithography and will take the form of SoC (System-on-chip). On the market there will be models of 2- and 4-core featuring integrated graphics to be compatible with DirectX 12 and Ultra HD resolution (4K) @60 Hz.
One of the most powerful representatives will be from Pentium N3700 series, which is to have four cores clocked at 1.6 GHz in standard mode and 2.4 GHz in Turbo mode. In addition, the manufacturer will integrate its 2 MB L2 cache, 2-channel DDR3-1600 memory controller and graphics chip HD Graphics with frequencies of 400/700 MHz. TDP is only 6 W.
Previously, VR-Zone posted a diagram Braswell allegedly architecture which can be seen impressively 4 Core Atom, and 1MB L2 cache did not match the two cores (a total of 2MB), as well as the eighth generation graphics core, and a variety of input and output.
From this design look, Braswell should be a continuation of the current system Silvermont architecture, essentially the current Pentium / Celeron J / N series, Atom Z3000 series is no different, but the process plan it, I am afraid that the performance is not too effective to surprise.
The Pentium N3700 series processor will give the power to All-in-One computers – for example a model with 21.5-inch touchscreen and Windows 8.1 you will have to pay about $450.
