Reportedly, Core M processors will be three times as the fast as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 – a popular processor used in high-end smartphones and tablets such as Samsung's Galaxy Note 4. Intel claim a Core M processor can deliver twice the performance and seven times better graphics compared to a four year-old PC.

Seven Core-M devices have currently been announced, including laptops, tablets and two-in-ones from Asus, Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo. Toshiba will also be making Core M devices. An additional 13 other Core M products are in the pipeline. The first of these will see a release in the fourth quarter of this year.
