    Phoronix: Intel Starts Shipping Core M Broadwell-Y 14nm Chips

    Intel passed along word that they've begun shipping their Core M Broadwell-Y chips...

    I think there is a typo : shouldn't the second Broadwell be Haswell ?

    It will be interesting to see what this hardware will be capable of... But I guess it will be at least as expensive as their other processors, which is a downside for me.

    One of the bigger questions, I believe, is whether (or when) these wonderful in-die GPU's will be good enough to ditch dedicated cards. I think they kind of are there if you are willing to play games at 740p, and definitely are more than enough for 2D, these days, with Haswell

    It looks like Broadwell will be roughly 40% faster than Haswell :

    Now, it is clear that even a $150 dedicated GPU is today several times faster than the fastest Haswell GPU. It would take about 3 to 4 iterations of 40% increases to reduce the gap to a more reasonable shortfall.

    But for a chromebook standard resolution, you can play most steam games at moderate detail, fullscreen, even with the Sandy Bridge celeron haswell in the acer c710, i am sure the newer acer c720 with an i3 Haswell and 4GB Ram will make for beautiful portable "steam machines".

    Broadwell will obviously make things better. It is just for the very high resolution high detail gaming that you will need a dedicated GC for desktops/laptops.
