Intel on Sunday updated its official price list with four new ultra-low voltage (ULV) chips, three of which are second-generation Core i parts, while the fourth is a Celeron. These power-efficient chips have a TDP of 17W, making them ideal for ultrathin laptops - or “ultrabooks” as Intel now likes to call them.
The four new 32nm ULV processors are:
Core i7-2677M: 4M cache, 2 Cores, 4 Threads, 1.80 GHz (Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz), $317
Core i7-2637M: 4M cache, 2 Cores, 4 Threads, 1.70 GHz (Turbo Boost up to 2.8GHz), $289
Core i5-2557M: 3M cache, 2 Cores, 4 Threads, 1.70 GHz (Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz), $250
The upcoming Asus UX21, which was introduced at Computex as the first “ultrabook”, is known to have the dual-core Core i5-2557M inside. According to CPU-World, the Celeron 847 can be found inside the Fujitsu Lifebook P701, a 12.1-inch ultrathin notebook.
