The Core i7-7Y75 is a dual-core SoC from the Kaby Lake-Y family manufactured on the 14nm node. It’s designed for ultra-thin convertibles, notebooks. The chip is a direct successor to the Core m7-6Y75 from the Skylake generation and Intel claims the improved so-called 14nm+ architecture brings the Core i7-7Y75 closer to the mainstream Core i7 lineup so that’s why the company renamed it.
However, most of the specs remain the same with a slight boost in clock speeds and now sports the newer Intel HD Graphics 615 iGPU. The dual-core CPU is clocked at 1.3 – 3.6 GHz and thanks to the Hyper-Threading technology, the chip works with four instead of two threads, which significantly increases the multi-core performance. The SoC also has a DDR3L/LPDDR3 dual-channel memory controller.
As far as the iGPU is concerned, it consists of 24 EU (Execution Units) and runs on clocks between 300 and 1050 MHz utilizing the available memory. It also supports native hardware decoding like H.265/HEVC with 10-bit color depth and Google’s VP9 codec used for YouTube. The whole SoC is rated at 4.5W including the GPU and the memory controller but can be adjusted by the OEM. Due to the extremely low TDP, the chip is usually implemented with a passive cooling solution.
