This graphics core incorporates several new features that allow it to improve energy efficiency by 40 percent - essentially giving longer battery life for the same performance or improving performance when you really need it," Kolar wrote.

When it comes to building and configuring Core M, Intel likes to refer to their efforts as the “Fanless Challenge,” reflecting the fact that their biggest goal with Core M is to comfortably get the processor in to 10” tablets under 10mm in thickness that are passively cooled.

A TITANic roundup of GPUs

by Jeremy Hellstrom |
www.pcper.com
[H]ard|OCP tested it against the GTX 980 which shares the same cooler and is every bit as long as the TITAN X. Along the way they found a use for the 12GB of VRAM as both Watch_Dogs and Far Cry 4 used over 7GB of memory when tested at 4k resolution though the frame rates were not really playable, you will need at least two TITAN X's to pull that off.
They will be revisiting this card in the future, providing more tests for a card with incredible performance and an even more incredible price.

Intel Broadwell Architecture Preview: A Glimpse into Core M

by Ryan Smith |

When it comes to building and configuring Core M, Intel likes to refer to their efforts as the “Fanless Challenge,” reflecting the fact that their biggest goal with Core M is to comfortably get the processor in to 10” tablets under 10mm in thickness that are passively cooled.
The end result no doubt limited what performance optimizations Intel could integrate into Broadwell’s design, but it also functionally reduces power requirements for any given performance level, furthering Intel’s goals in getting Core performance in a mobile device.
