Intel Core i7 4610Y 

Released January, 2014
  • 3 GHz
  • Dual core

The design of each transistor fin is now more denser and compared to the 22nm node, 14nm is much smaller and efficient.

The interconnect scaling has also been updated with a new design with the interconnect path now boasting a 52nm minimum pitch which provides better scaling compared to the 80nm pitch on the 22nm process node.

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.

Intel Announces Core M Processor Lineup Using Broadwell-Y

by Ryan Shrout |
The Core M 5Y70 is the highest performance part with a base clock speed of 1.10 GHz that can scale up to 2.6 GHz with one or both cores active.
At least one partner has already announced a Core M product: the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix.
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.
