Intel Core i3 2348M 

Released January, 2013
  • 2.3 GHz
  • Dual core
6.5 Out of 10

Moving to a 14nm process technology should give the GPU more thermal headroom and result in higher maximum clock speeds.
by Ryan-Shrout (Aug, 2014)
The core features were targeting a 2:1 ratio of performance to power, which would require new features and updates to improve performance by at least 2x while maintaining power levels.

The majority of the die is dedicated to the graphics core while there are two CPU cores and right below is a shared 4 MB L3 cache which is shared across the graphics and processor cores.
Since Core M is the first 14nm device, it will meet the demands of next iteration of mobility devices boasting better performance and efficiency.

Short Bytes: Intel's Core M and Broadwell-Y SoC

by Jarred Walton |
Where previous Intel processors targeted laptops and desktops as the primary use case and then refined and adjusted the designs to get into lower power envelopes, with Broadwell Intel is putting the Y-series requirements center stage.
Shrinking the process technology from 22nm to 14nm can mean a lot of things, but the primary benefit this time appears to be smaller chip sizes and lower power requirements.

Intel previews Broadwell Core M

by Peter Scott |
Thanks to the new manufacturing process, Intel can essentially squeeze desktop-class performance into very thin form factors.
Products based on Broadwell Core M chips should start to appear towards the end of the year, but the silicon gods were not too kind to Intel.
Graphics performance and efficiency is improved as well and sees a much more dramatic jump in performance than the x86 portion of the die, which is more or less what we have been expecting for some time.
It might seem counter intuitive at first, but due to voltage minimums set by processor architectures and process technology to maintain stability, processors like Broadwell-Y can’t run at lower that a specific voltage and remain 100% stable.
