Apart form the chipsets that were highlighted at the Computex 2014 tech show taking place in Taipei, Intel also showcased one of its reference product that surprised most of the tablet fans around the world.
Intel showcased the world's first 14nm fanless mobile PC reference design at the ongoing Computex 2014 in Taipei. The device is dubbed as Llama Mountain and it is a tablet that is based on the company's upcoming Broadwell processor and runs on Windows 8.1 OS.
The device which is 2-in-1 can be easily switched from laptop to a tablet. As a tablet it will be a massive device as it bears a 12.5-inch display. But the best part is that it is just 7.2mm thin and weighs 670 grams. Thus the design has in fact beat Apple's iPad Air thin profile by 0.3 mm because iPad Air measures 7.5mm thick. "This is by far the smallest full motherboard that exists in the world," says director of marketing for the PC Client Solution division, Gary Richman.
Intel reportedly said that the design of the reference device was based on Intel's next-generation Broadwell processors that will be in market later this year. To be more precise, it was based on Broadwell Y series silicon, which will be branded the Core Mprocessor. Intel claims that it is the most energy-efficient Core processor in the company's history. The two-in-one prototype that contains an incredibly thin motherboard with a sisterboard also contains storage and a Wi-Fi radio.
If you are not aware, Intel has also announced that almost 130 new Intel-based Android and Windows.
