The Core m7-6Y75 is a super-efficient low TDP processor from Intel’s Skylake family built on the 14nm node offering two cores with Hyper-Threading. The base operating frequency of the cores is 1.2 GHz but can go up to 3.1 GHz for a short period of time. However, if the workload utilizes all two cores, the maximum clock speeds are limited to 2.9 GHz and can be sustained just for a short period of time depending on the notebook’s cooling solution. Speaking of which, the CPU is designed to be implemented into small 2-in-1 devices, tablets and ultrabooks with passive cooling solution. Thanks to the short burst frequency, the chip is able to match the Core i5-6200U CPU when it comes to short benchmark tests but its performance drops significantly over time.
The whole SoC’s TDP is rated at 4.5W including the memory controller and the integrated GPU. The memory controller supports dual-channel LPDDR3-1866/DDR3L-1600 RAM chips while the GPU is Intel HD Graphics 515. The latter can be found in the rest of the CPUs from the same family – Core m3 and m5 and here, the GPU is clocked at 300 – 1000 MHz. What’s interesting, though, is that the CPU also offers Intel’s vPro technology pack aimed at business-oriented users along with all the usual features that all high-end CPUs have.
