Intel-Core-i3-Logo


A few days ago Hitechreview reported Intel would release new ultra low power processors sometime next month. Coming with the “Y” letter, the new Intel chips will have TDPs that range between 10W and 13W depending on model.

More information regarding these processors has become known so we will share it with you – the Intel “Y” chips will be basically Ivy Bridge processors with lowered power consumption and will come in BGA1023 form factor. Moreover they will be used in portable devices so it is unlikely as of now to see them in regular desktop PCs and the like. All upcoming “Y” chips feature two computational cores and a built-in memory controller that supports DDR3, DDR3L and DDR3L-RS memory and there’s a built-in graphics chip that runs at 850 MHz.

Let’s take a look at the actual processors – the first representative of the group – the Pentium 2129Y runs at 1.1 GHz and sports 2 MB of L3 cache. There’s also Intel HD graphics and TDP of 10 watts. The Pentium 2129Y will not support Intel Turbo Boost, Hyper-Threading and vPro.

The Intel Core i3-3229Y runs at 1.4 GHz and has 3 MB of L3 cache. The CPU also had Intel HD 4000 graphics and TDP of 13 watts. The chip also supports Hyper-Threading.

The Core i5-3339Y runs at 1.5 GHz (2.0 GHz in Turbo mode) and has 3 MB of L3 cache in addition to Intel HD 4000 graphics and TDP of 13 watts. The chip also comes with Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading.

The Core i5-3439Y runs at 1.5 GHz again but offers faster Turbo Mode (2.3 GHz in Turbo mode) and has 3 MB of L3 cache in addition to Intel HD 4000 graphics and TDP of 13 watts. The chip comes with Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading too.

Finally here we have the Core i7-3689Y, which runs at 1.5 GHz (2.6 GHz in Turbo mode) and has 4 MB of L3 cache in addition to Intel HD 4000 graphics and TDP of 13 watts. The chip again comes with Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading.

Pricing and the release date are unknown.
