Intel reveals Core M Broadwell performance and TDP: At 14nm, Intel finally goes fanless

Broadwell die shot (Core M, Broadwell-Y, Broadwell-U)
At IFA 2014 in Berlin, Intel has finally taken the wraps off its first three 14nm Broadwell-based Core M processors, filling in most of the remaining gaps. We now know the base and turbo frequencies for Broadwell-Y, the TDPs of the first Core M chips (yes, Intel has moved away from SDP), and the other changes and tweaks that will allow for fanless Broadwell-powered tablets and two-in-one laptops that are just 8mm thick. Oh, we also have some cool photos that show you just how small the Core M chips are, too.

The $120 Windows 8 tablet finally emerges at IFA 2014: Can Microsoft take on Android?

Toshiba Encore Mini, cheap Windows 8 tablet
IFA 2014 kicked off in Berlin this morning, and already we’re seeing an interesting trend emerge: Those cheap-and-cheerful small-screen Windows 8 tablets that Microsoft promised back in April are finally arriving. Both Toshiba and Acer have announced their offerings (priced at $120 and $150 respectively), and the usual OEM suspects (Dell, HP, etc.) should unveil their offerings over the next couple of days. These tablets will all be fairly low-spec devices with either a 7- or 8-inch screen, and most of them will be powered by an Intel Atom (Bay Trail) SoC. This means you can now get a full Windows 8.1 device for just $120 — a proposition so juicy that Microsoft hopes it can entice customers away from cheap Android tablets and into the Windows camp.
