Intel has strictly suggested a Core M processors, a initial fifth-generation Core processors that use a ‘Broadwell-Y’ microarchitecture. We’ve told we about Broadwell-Y before, though we’ve never been authorised to see minute opening numbers, let alone run benchmarks ourselves on a anxiety platform. That all altered currently when we were means to run benchmarks on a Llama Mountain anxiety inscription that was powered by a Intel Core M-5Y70 Broadwell-Y Processor!
Llama Mountain is what Intel calls a Core M anxiety pattern inscription and we got a possibility currently to spend some time with a 7.2mm thick inscription that weighs in during 670 grams Intel will be charity 3 Core M array processors when they are launched Oct of this year: The Intel Core M-5Y10, a 5Y10a, both clocked during adult to 2GHz and a vPro enabled M-5Y70, clocked during adult to 2.6GHz that is directed during business users. All of a processors are dual-core processors with Intel Hyper-Threading.
The Llama Mountain inscription that we got to reason in a hands and run benchmarks on was regulating a Intel Core M 5Y70 dual-core processor with Intel Hyper-Threading technology. Since this is an Intel anxiety inscription and not a pre-production sell channel product we’ll be display we several benchmark formula that we ran on a inscription and let we pull your possess conclusions from them.
First adult we have a Cinebench R11.5 multi-threaded benchmark where we scored 2.77 in a multi-threaded CPU benchmark. The shot we after ran of the OpenGL exam was out of focus, though we found a Intel HD Graphics 5300 was means to spin in a measure of only underneath 17 Frames Per Second (FPS).
Next adult we have Futuremark 3DMark and a simple Ice Storm Unlimited exam that is directed during mobile inclination and entrance turn computers. The Broadwell powered inscription was means to measure tablet’s measure of 45,997 altogether as shown above. The FPS in Graphics Test 1 were 269.58 FPS and 190.69 in Graphics Test 2. It looks like this inscription is too quick for a Ice Storm Benchmark, so let’s pierce adult to Cloud Gate and see what a Intel HD Graphics 5300 can unequivocally do!
In 3DMark Cloud Gate we found a altogether measure of a anxiety inscription to be 4,576 points, that is improved than Windows-based inscription that we have ever benchmarked. Intel pronounced that they are about dual times faster on gaming and 3 times faster on many of a other applications than a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 or 805 processors. Intel also remarkable that a 14nm Core M processors will offer 50% some-more CPU opening as good as 40% faster graphics opening when compared to final year’s Intel Core i5-4302Y. Intel feels strongly that they have ARM, AMD and Qualcomm kick for tender processor performance.
During a time with Intel using a benchmarks we were shown a Llama Mountain anxiety house that powers a tablet. The PCB is surprisingly small! We were once told that this was smallest entirely organic motherboard in a world, though we aren’t certain if that is still loyal as we were told that several months ago. It should be remarkable that during a corner of a house there is a connector for a daughterboard that binds a NAND Flash used for storage and a wireless solution. We were shown that label today, so we only have an picture of this label for we today.
The Llama towering anxiety house is deliberate to be a single-sided board, though we can see some badge connectors on a retreat and a tiny PCB right underneath a SoC. The Core M processors use Intel’s 2nd Generation Fully-Integrated Voltage Regulator (FIVR) record with 3DL for increasing energy smoothness potency and performance. The FIVR pattern requires outmost inductors to be placed on a bottom of a package and a tallness of a inductors was gripping Intel from going as skinny as they wanted. Intel engineers and architects came adult with something called a 3DL PCB. It is fundamentally an outmost PCB for a inductors that mounts next a SoC and in a cutout in a house that a SoC is being trustworthy to. This cuts a z-height of a Intel Core M (Broadwell-Y) SoC by roughly half of what it was on Haswell-Y. This pattern was a vital breakthrough when it came to thickness.
This is a demeanour during a a Llama Mountain house with a copper heatsink it uses to assistance waste feverishness divided from a SoC and a low energy DDR3 memory ICs. This copper image creates approach hit with a aluminum housing of a tablet, so radically a list housing itself is one enormous heatsink.
Here is a demeanour during a inside of an aluminum cover that we were shown for Llama Mountain and we can see in a center where a SoC heatsink creates hit with a inscription housing. The finish outcome is a fanless inscription interjection to a 4.5W TDP that can final for adult to 9 hours while doing normal computing tasks with a 34Wh battery.
Is it Oct yet?
We can’t wait to see how a sell prolongation models demeanour and are really meddlesome in saying what cost points this will come to marketplace at. Hopefully we’ll be means to get one in Oct and run a full apartment of opening tests on it!
