14nm manufacturing process makes computers slimmer and cooler.

Intel has revealed details of its new microprocessor Intel Core M Broadwell, which has been developed to power thinner PCs.

The chip is the first to be manufactured using 14nm process, which enables machines to be slimmer, cool and silent.

Intel director of process architecture and integration, Mark Bohr, said: "Intel's 14 nanometer technology uses second-generation Tri-gate transistors to deliver industry-leading performance, power, density and cost per transistor.

"Intel's investments and commitment to Moore's law is at the heart of what our teams have been able to accomplish with this new process."

The process was able to achieve two times reduction in the thermal design point in comparison to the previous generation processor, while retaining the same level of performance and improved battery life, the company said.

Intel Core M consists of a small form factor that eliminates the need of a fan in personal computers, making them lighter and thinner.

Intel VP and GM of product development, Rani Borkar, said: "This new microarchitecture is more than a remarkable technical achievement.

"It is a demonstration of the importance of our outside-in design philosophy that matches our design to customer requirements."
