Intel’s first processor in the BGA package is expected to arrive by the end of this year, according to one of the leaked roadmap slides. Among the first few processors will cover across entry-level market sector, including the Celeron and Pentium brands. Motherboards with BGA processors come with the processors that cannot be the replaced and are hard-wired to the board along with a stock fan-heatsink. The SOC completely put together the processor as far as we know it, with the motherboard chipset.
Intel’s first SOCs for the desktop are based on the “BayTrail-D” Silicon which include Celeron J1750, Celeron J1850 and Pentium J2850 . Celeron J1750 is a dual-core part with the CPU cores clocked at 2.41 GHz, GPU at 792 MHz and a TDP rated at 10W only. While on the other hand , Celeron J1850 is quad-core part with the CPU cores clocked at 2.00GHz and GPU at the same 792MHz. Here Pentium J2850 takes the lead with a quad-core part, CPU cores running at 2.41GHz and GPU at 792MHz. both of these quad-core parts stick to TDP rated at 10W . Being SOCs, these chips incorporate connectivity.
The roadmap outlines also include mainstream-thru-performance parts. These are the chips rooted on the Haswell GT-3 package. Haswell GT3 Is a quad-core Haswell Silicon with a bigger iGPU which includes twice the number of execution units to the standard Haswell GT1/GT2 along with an ample L4 eDRAM cache. The first BGA performance-segment from Intel includes, Core i5-4570R, i5-4670R and Core i7-4770R.
Coming down to their features, the i5 has 2.70GHz CPU clocks, 3.20 GHz Turbo Boost , 4MB of L3 cache, Iris Pro 5200 graphics clocked at 1150MHz and 65W TDP. The i5 is a step further with 3.00GHz CPU clocks, 370GHz Turbo Boost , same 4MB of L3 cache, but a relatively faster Pro graphics clocked at 1.30 GHz . Leading the group is the Core i7 -4770R with 6MB of L3 cache , HyperThreading , 3.20 GHz CPU clocks, 3.90 GHz Turbo Boost and the usual 1.30 GHz graphics core.
