COMPUTEX 2014: Intel's unveiling of Core M processors for hybrid growth
Day 2 at COMPUTEX Taipei: Intel's president, Renee James offered the COMPUTEX crowd some real news today. During her keynote, James announced the launch of Intel's latest generation of mobile processors: the 14nm fanless Broadwell processor, the Core M for 2-in-1 (or hybrid) PCs, and an SoC platform for low-cost mobiles (particularly important for emerging market device opportunities). James' keynote is particularly important for Intel because of the continued move away from traditional PCs in the global marketplace both for consumers and for many levels within the enterprise setting. Having a true hybrid tablet-PC will be a game changer, but there has yet to be a success story – that may change this year thanks to the latest generation of components and processors designed specifically for mobility. Additionally, supporting the entry-level, low-cost mobile devices will position Intel to support its clients who will compete in that growth market.
