The first batch of 4.5W Core M processors aim at either the 11.6-inch, 8mm thick fanless tablet design as indicated in the graph above, or similarly a 10.1-inch 10mm thick tablet will also be suitable.

Intel’s erratic Core M performance leaves an opening for AMD

by Joel Hruska |
www.extremetech.com
Instead of absolutely guaranteeing that a chip will reach a certain speed at a given temperature or power consumption level, simply establish that frequency range as a “maybe” and push the issue off on OEMs or enthusiasts to deal with.
In several cases, the gaps in both CPU and GPU workloads are quite significant — and favor the slower processor.

More Intel Core M Coming Q4

by Ian Cutress |
www.anandtech.com
All new CPUs are slated for a Q4 launch, which would mean that they might become available for end users in products on the shelf sometime in Q1 2015.
These initial CPUs should be properly available to the public in Q4 in devices such as the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro using the Core M-5Y70.
The fact that Chrome runs poorly — markedly worse than Internet Explorer — could be indicative of GPU driver issues, while the 3.5W TDP target Lenovo apparently locked in would explain the throttling behavior.
It’s possible that these weak performance figures and throttling issues are either caused by Intel drivers or by overly aggressive chip positioning.
One of the main graphs Intel was pushing in their briefing was this one, indicating what power is required for a fanless tablet.
With the 12.5-inch size and 7.3mm width, it sounds like the T300 Chi will be modifying the Core M CPU to be around 4W in order to keep the 41C skin temperature as a maximum.
