Broadwell is the 14nm die shrink of Haswell, bringing a smaller die and lower power consumption. As is often the case with Intel’s ‘Tick’ updates, a few minor tweaks have also been applied, while remaining on the existing LGA1150 platform. Today we have the flagship model on hand, the Core i7-5775C, and its BGA version, the Core i7-5775R. Both are nearly identical save for the price and a slightly higher Turbo frequency on the BGA model.
Now that low-power Intel Broadwell Core M CPUs are out, Lenovo is back with a refresh of the ThinkPad Helix, their detachable tablet-laptop hybrid. The new Helix offers a similar feature set than its predecessor, but Lenovo claims it's now 15% slimmer and will last several hours longer on battery. It's also over $500 cheaper than the original.
