6.2 Out of 10

So some of the key aspects of the Broadwell microarchitecture would be to be suitable for fanless devices, deliver on core performance improvements and feature enhanced graphics, media, display capabilities.

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.

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

by Joel Hruska |
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.
Though not a performance powerhouse, I think the first taste of Broadwell is delectable and provides vendors with an amazing option that balances the performance of Haswell with the power efficiency of Bay Trail and the Atom lineup.
Newly branded as the Core M line, Broadwell-Y is meant to target the market looking for similar performance of today's ultra-low voltage Haswell processors but with longer battery life and more efficient designs.

More Intel Core M Coming Q4

by Ian Cutress |
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 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.
