SAN FRANCISCO -- Intel on Monday unveiled a new line of microprocessors aimed at powering thinner and cooler personal computers and other devices.
The chip code-named Broadwell "will be used to manufacture a wide range of high-performance to low-power products including servers, personal computing devices and Internet of Things."
One of the advantages of the chip is its small form factor, allowing for PCs that may not need cooling fans which take up space and create noise.
It uses a 14-nanometer fabrication process that allows more circuits to be placed on the chip than its predecessors.
