Intel Rolls Out Mobile Processors
Advertisement
#1
With Intel's launch of its newest mobile processors, you will soon find Intel Core i7, i5, and i3 CPUs in almost every laptop, as well as integrated graphics.

What a difference 4 months makes. Intel, which is known for launching new mobile tech every year, took a lot longer than that to announce the successor to the aging Core 2 Duos. Within a span of four months, though, it not only released the Core i7s for high-end laptops, called "Clarksfield," and a new netbook platform, called "Pine Trail" but it has also changed how every other laptop will look like on the inside. The "Arrandale" chips, which are officially dubbed as the mainstream Intel Core i7s, Core i5s, and Core i3s CPUs, will be found inside the vast majority of laptops this coming year. They're basically a continuation of Clarksfield, which announced back in September 2009, except every one of these processors will have two physical cores instead of four. But it goes well beyond the number of processor cores. Arrandale marks the first time integrated graphics has moved to the processor package, which used to be a space occupied solely by the processor. And catchy terms like TurboBoost, HyperThreading, and an integrated memory controller will be integral parts of a laptop sales pitch. This year, all you need to know is that the speed of a laptop will increase dramatically, 3D games and HD videos will look better, and battery benefits (from initial testing) will either stay unchanged or suffer minor setbacks because of the increase in power usage—and we have the numbers to back this up.

New Processor Models
The name "Arrandale" encompasses myriad new processor models, and they are divided into three tiers: The Core i7s (not to be confused with the quad core Core i7s), the Core i5s, and the Core i3s. And these in turn branch into standard voltage (fastest speeds), low voltage, and ultra low voltage (best battery life) classifications, as they did with the Core 2 Duos.

Intel announced the Core i7-620M (2.66GHz, Standard Voltage), the Core i7-640LM (2.13GHz, Low Voltage), the Core i7-620LM (2GHz, Low Voltage), the Core i7-640UM (1.2GHz, ULV), and the Core i7-620UM (1.06GHz, ULV). For the Core i5s, the announcement includes the Core i5-540M (2.53GHz, Standard Voltage), which we tested in the Asus K42F, the Core i5-430M (2.26GHz, Standard Voltage), the Core i5-520M (2.4GHz, Standard Voltage), and the Core i5-520UM (1.06GHz, ULV). Finally, the Core i3-350M (2.26GHz) and the Core i3-330M (2.13GHz) will find their way into budget systems.

Intel also announced several chipsets that target home and enterprise (Intel Core vPro) markets, and a new wireless lineup that range from different antenna arrays to WiMax support
