    Intel launches 5th-generation 'Broadwell' processors

    Intel has just announced its 5th generation Intel Core processors, also known as Broadwell, at CES 2015. The new chips are 37% smaller than the previous generation, using Intel's new 14nm process. Intel emphasizes the performance gains in Broadwell, especially battery life improvements. Intel says that battery life could improve by as much as 1.5 hours. The chips also enable faster wake times and improved graphics performance.

    The 5th generation chips are also designed with Internet-connected devices and more immersive experiences, such as voice interactions with your devices, in mind. The new lineup includes the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i5 vPro, Core i7, and Core i7 vPro. There are also new Celeron and Pentium processors based on the 14nm process, as well as 14nm chips for tablets, with the codename of Cherry Trail. Cherry Trail devices are expected some time in the first half of this year.

    Too bad Win7/8/10 won't be able to take full advantage of the extra speed and power. The way these OSes are designed feels like I'm running programs thru an interpreter rather than at the machine language level, and I'm not just talking .NET framework, which is why I prefer XP above all else. All of my currently machines multi-boot along XP. I can't see myself getting a new machine that doesn't support XP in the near future, unless MS gets their act together by Windows 12 and produce an XP 2nd ED, which of course won't be named so...
