Intel Price List Reveals New Core i5 and Core i7 Mobile CPUs
There are Celeron 1000-Series CPUs and some Core i5 units ready for action
Intel really seems to like launching processors en masse. While, historically, some chips got special announcement days, most times the company launches half a dozen or more units at the same time.This is precisely what has happened this week, although Chipzilla hasn't so much released new chips, but has updated its price list with units it was going to start shipping all along.
The low-cost 22nm Ivy Bridge CPUs have already been covered, so we're left with the three Core i5 and two Core i7 models.
The Core i5 chips have 3 MB L3 cache memory, 2.9 to 3.6 GHz top clock speed, two cores, 4 threads and HD 4000 graphics of 350/1200 MHz to 650/1250 MHz.
The Core i7 processors have 4 MB cache, two cores and four threads, each. One of them, the i7-3540, is made for regular laptops and has a TDP of 35W, plus an IGP of 650/1300 MHz and a clock speed of 3.0/3.7 GHz.
As for the Core i7 3687U, it runs on just 17W, has 2.1/3.3 GHz frequency and uses a 350/1200 MHz IGP.
