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.

In The News From around the web

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 |
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.
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.
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.
