Intel's super-thin 'Core M' tablets will be cheaper than you think
Not everyone of us has enough knowledge about chipsets and what’s really going on in all those computers and smartphones but we do know one thing that Intel's 7.2mm-thick reference PC was something big and probably the most important thing we saw this week at Computex.
These Core M-series processors are designed for the 2 in 1s and they will be ushered in full-fledged computers which as reported are going to be even tinier than the iPad Air. Hearing all this we can think to ourselves that with such advancement Intel is certainly rolling out something futuristic and executive and automatically we would relate a premium price with this concept. But the reality this time is far better than our imagination because according to Intel that these devices will cost far less than typical Ultrabooks.
In fact, according to Intel's PC client chief Kirk Skaugen, the prices could run as low as $600 which is just equal to all the mid rangers out there. However, it is difficult to keep a device so thin and so cheap at the same time. So in order to hit this price mark, the tablet would have to be slightly thicker than the "Llama Mountain" reference PC we told and that machine would cost closer to $799. "I think Llama Mountain could deliver $799 kind of price points," he added. "Maybe they go a little thicker, but they'd still be fanless and hit $599, $699."
Oracle has announced its latest processor at the Hot Chips conference last week and this one is a serious candidate for the title of most complex chip ever.The M7, which follows the M6, will have 32 cores, 20 more compared to its predecessor and will use a new core design called the S4.Built on a 20nm manufacturing process but referred by EnterpriseTech as a 16nm FinFET 3D manufacturing node from TSMC ...

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
