Leaked specs detail Intel's 14-nm Braswell SoCs

Intel's Cherry Trail chips, as seen in Microsoft's Surface 3, represent one half of its two-pronged strategy for 14-nm SoCs. Those Atom-branded chips are meant for tablets like the Surface. The other half—code-named Braswell—hasn't been officially announced yet, but details of have leaked over at CPU World. Here are the specs:

Model Cores/threads Frequency Cache Graphics Memory TDP Price
Celeron N3000 2 / 2 1.04 / 2.08 GHz 1 MB Gen 8-LP DDR3-1600 4W $107
Celeron N3050 2 / 2 1.6 / 2.16 GHz 1 MB Gen 8-LP DDR3-1600 6W $107
Celeron N3150 4 / 4 1.6 / 2.08 GHz 2 MB Gen 8-LP DDR3-1600 6W $107
Pentium N3700 4 / 4 1.6 / 2.4 GHz 2 MB Gen 8-LP DDR3-1600 6W $161

Where will these new SoCs end up? Intel says Braswell chips are for "entry level 2-in-1 devices, laptops, desktops, and All-in-One PCs." Given that description, it seems likely we'll see Braswell in products similar to those based on the last-generation Bay Trail-M and Bay Trail-D chips, like these fanless systems from ASRock and Asus. Intel also released a NUC based on Bay Trail. We'll keep our eyes and ears open for more official news on Braswell as it comes.
