As expected at IDF Shenzhen Intel announced Braswell the 14nm successor to their 22nm Bay Trail processor. We are expecting to see the Braswell SoC’s power entry-level desktops, notebooks and convertibles sporting Android or Chrome operating systems. There weren’t any more details made available about the new processor, including a release date.
Keeping an eye on Intel other low power chipsets, Intel is also working on a 14-nanometer chip called Cherry Trail which will primarily be use in tablets. While we wait for Cherry Trail to be released Intel has announced Bay Trail Entry level which reduces the components and the cost of the processors. We will be seeing this platform head to market in the second half of this year and we will also see added performance for Bay Trail with better graphics and more security features.
