After releasing another six-core desktop processor, Intel decided to make a wider selection of mobile offerings by introducing several new CPUs.
On of them is Celeron 787 launched on behalf of ULV (ultra-low voltage) platform. This CPU is build using 32nm process logic and includes only one compute core operating at 1.3GHz. It also comes with 1Mb of L3-cache. As a member of ULV family this novelty generates 17W of thermal power. The price for a single CPU in 1000 batches amount to $107. Celeron 787 is already available to manufacturers for purchase.
In addition, Intel has released four more mobile processors of Core i7 series:
- Intel Core i7-2640M — dual core (four threads) model with support of Hyper-Threading technology. Clocked at 2.8GHz it can dynamically change speed to 3.5GHZ thanks to Turbo Boost technology. Overall amount of L3 cache is 4MB, TDP value amounts to 35W.
- Intel Core i7-2760QM is a quad-core (eight threads) model. Basic speed is 2.4GHz while Turbo Boost can rise it to 3.5GHz. This novelty comes with 6MB of L3 cache and TDP of 45W.
- Intel Core i7-2860QM is another quad-core (eight threads) CPU with clock ranging from 2.5GHz to 3.6GHZ with Turbo Boost off/on. The CPU supports Hyper-Threading, has 8MB of L2 cache and dissipates 45W of thermal power.
- Finally, the most powerful one, Intel Core i7-2960XM. With four cores and 8MB of cache this processors can execute 8 threads at a time thanks to Hyper-Threading support. With Turbo Boost enabled it can operate at decent 3.7 GHz while in Idle cores downclock to 2.7GHz. TDP is 55W.
All of Core i7 products specified are equipped with Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics processor clocked at 650 MHz. Turbo boost feature can make it run twice as faster, 1300Mhz. New models should become available for orders in q4 2011.
