Intel announced new Core M mobile processors at IDF 2014 last month. Today, Chinese VR-Zone got hold of some slides revealing the complete Core Broadwell-U line up which is expected to launch at CES 2015. Broadwell-U line up makes use of the new 14 nm manufacturing process, Broadwell CPU cores and Intel Iris graphics. Intel is planning to introduce 17 new SKUs consisting of five Core i7 models, six Core i5 CPUs, three Core i3, two Celeron and one Pentium SKUs for laptops and Ultrabooks. All 17 CPUs come with a TDP rating of 15 W and are produced in BGA packaging only. Intel Broadwell-U Line up _1
