Intel’s latest generation chips have made massive waves in the tech space this year, with majority of the world’s most popular brands of laptops and computers (and even smartphone manufacturers) adopting its Haswell and Bay Trail chips.

And it looks like that Intel still has a few surprises under its sleeve. Details of the company’s upcoming chip have been leaked online by Chinese website ChinaDIY. Codenamed as Broadwell the new chip is said to be designed for use with laptops and notebooks.

The new chip will reportedly feature improved energy efficiency and thermal design power (TDP) that will benefit mobile devices. The upcoming line will be divided into three classes – an H or high-performance category, and Y and U classes for low-voltage variants.

The H variant will either have one or two chips with two to four cores. The dual-chip processors will also feature GT3 or GT2 GPUs, up to 6MB L3 cache, support up to 32GB of DDR3L memory (at 1600Mhz) and TDP of 47 watts. The U and Y versions on the other hand will have a single chip only and will support up to 16GB of DDR3L-1600 memory or 8GB of LPDDR3-1600.

The Broadwell chips are expected to be released in Q2 of 2014.
