Braswell is probably one of the lesser known 14nm Platforms by Intel out there, and for good reason too, seeing its brand new. Basically the Pentium and Celeron branded SKUs that were usually based on the now aged Bay Trail design are now getting their own entry level platform called Braswell. We have covered Braswell news in the past but it feels like every time I do a write up on this, a new introduction is in order.

14nm Braswell Graphics will have 16 EUs and DX 11 – Intel HD 8th Gen iGPU

These entry level processors are of course aimed at getting a share of the market that AMD’s APUs dominate, specifically, the HTPC market. This market is used mostly for high quality playback and maybe even some casual gaming so a bad iGPU or the lack thereof can be a deal breaker. Blue’s answer to this is ofcourse introducing entry level Braswell Processors that will have their own spectrum of notebook, tablet and desktop SKUs. Now Braswell will be one performance tier above the Bay Trail processors while still retaining the same power efficiency. Needless to say the GPU itself must be atleast passable. The GPU, we now know consists of 16 EUs and supports DirectX11; all thanks to Intel HD 8th Generation Graphics.
