Rumor has it that Intel will refresh its lineup of Bay Trail mobile chips later this month. But what does the chipmaker have up its sleeve after that?
According to CNet News, Intel revealed a few early details about the successor to Bay Trail at a conference in China this week (presumably IDF in Shenzhen). That successor is code-named Braswell, and it will allegedly deliver "better performance and power efficiency" than the Bay Trail chips found in today's Chromebooks and "sub-$500 Windows PCs."
It doesn't sound like Intel revealed much else, except for the fact that Braswell will be a system-on-a-chip (just like Bay Trail) and will be based on the company's 14-nm fab process. Intel will also use that process to manufacture its upcoming Broadwell processors, which should hit desktops and notebooks later this year. There's apparently no word yet on when Braswell will come out.
