Even though we are expecting the release of Intel’s eight generation processors sometime this Fall, the company seem to be expanding its range of Kaby Lake SoCs. A few days back two new mobile chips were listed and now we are getting information about four more.
The new models were spotted on Intel’s specification update for the Kaby Lake family. These are the Core i3-7007U, i3-7110U, i5-7210U, i7-7510U which are going to replace the i3-6006U, i3-7100U, i5-7200U, i7-7500U respectively.
Like all ULV chips, the new models also have a TDP of just 15W and only two physical cores and four threads. The Core i3-7007U has 100 MHz higher base clock than its predecessor – 2.1 GHz which sets it between the i3-6006U and i3-7100U. Then there is the Core i3-7110U which has 200 MHz higher base clock than the i3-7100U but other parameters remain the same.
The Core i5-7210U and i7-7510U have the same base clock as their predecessors (2.5 and 2.7 GHz) but 200 MHz higher Turbo speeds, now reaching 3.3 GHz and 3.7 GHz respectively. The new Core i5 and i7 models also have their maximum iGPU frequency bumped by 100 MHz, not at 1100 MHz and 1150 MHz.
All ULV chips from the Kaby Lake generation support DDR3L-1600, LPDDR3-1866 and DDR4-2133 memory. The Core i7-7510U is the only one to feature 4 MB of SmartChache (the others have 3 MB).
Pricing and availability of the new processors are not disclosed yet. Meanwhile, you can check all currently available Intel products over here: http://amzn.to/2uajzgM
