Intel introduced their most energy-efficient Intel Core chips launched until now, namely the Intel Core M. According to the official press release, five major manufacturers will reveal 2-in-1 convertibles based on these processors starting next month. These manufacturers are HP, Acer, Asus, Dell, Toshiba and Lenovo.

These new chips only need up to 4.5 watts of power when running at full speed and can provide "amazing performance and battery life for the thinnest, fanless 2 in 1 devices." The first portables to use the new Intel Core M processors will be Acer Aspire Switch 12, Asus Zenbook UX305, Dell's Latitude 13 7000 series, HP ENVY x2, and Lenovo ThinkPad Helix.

Intel claims the new Intel Core M-5Y70 can provide two times the autonomy of a 4-year-old-system powered by a ultra-low voltage Intel Core i5-520UM processor. Compared to the previous generation Intel Core i5-4302Y chip, this new chip has a 50 percent smaller package and generates 60 percent less heat, but also provides 50 percent faster processing and 40 percent faster graphics performance.

More details about the new Intel Core M processors can be found in the press release below.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
