The Braswell Refresh SoC will replace the 22nm Bay Trail generation CPUs. Thanks to the 14nm fabrication process, the CPUs boast a TDP of no more than 10W. They'll also produce a lot less heat. The Braswell Refresh CPUs will also feature 8th-generation Intel HD GPUs with 12 Execution Units as opposed to 4 EUs on the Bay Trail processors. The new SoC will also feature native support for DDR3L-1600 memory, SATA 3 and up to 4 USB3.0 ports.
