Intel’s Core M-5Y10a is one of the first Broadwell processors and pioneer in the Core M CPU lineup. It is intended for integration in small form factor devices like 2-in-1 devices, tablets, due to the small dimensions of the SoC.
The Core M-5Y10a’s base frequency is 800MHz and supports Turbo Boost 2.0 and can be overclocked up to 2.0GHz when needed. The CPU has 64-bit architecture with 2 cores and both of them can emulate a virtual one thanks to the Hyper-Threading technology. It also has ultra-low power consumption of only 4.5W, which is due to the 14nm FinFET manufacturing process.
The CPU supports LPDDR3 1600/1333MHz and DDR3L/DDR3L-RS 1600MHz and a maximum of 16GB. It’s also compatible with PCI 2.0. The Core M-5Y10a is equipped with Intel HD Graphics 5300 core with a base frequency of 100MHz and a maximum of 800MHz.
