At COMPUTEX, Intel revealed more information about their next gen Core product called Intel® Core™ M processor. It will be the first 14-nanometer chip from Intel. To demonstrate it, Intel revealed the world’s first 14nm fanless mobile PC reference design from Intel is a 12.5 inch screen that is 7.2mm thin with keyboard detached and weighs 670 grams. The majority of designs based on this new chip are expected to be fanless and deliver both a lightning-fast tablet and a razor-thin laptop. But if you want to extract more performance out of these chips, you need to cool down the fanless devices. For this, Intel have come with a new kind of dock that will have fans to cool down the outer surface of the devices. The docking station is designed to have set of fans to add some airflow to allow for greater performance while using such a system at your desk.
CNET during their demonstration found that these docks making very little noise and the airflow was hard to notice. Intel claims that running a Core M system with the dock would boost performance by around 30 percent. If such docking stations come to market, users will have a great portable device that can give great performance at desk.
What do you think of this concept?
