Ivy Bridge Comes To Tablets; Starts At 13W

Intel plans to release two Ivy Bridge SKUs to compete in the mobile area with ultra-low voltage and consumption. The faster one is Core i7 3689Y, has two cores and two threads and base clock of 1.5 GHz. With Turbo Boost 2.0 support, the single-core turbo clock is an impressive 2.6 GHz and on both cores tops at 2.4 GHz. On the graphics side, it comes With Intel HD 4000 clocked between 350 MHz and 860 MHz, depending on Turbo Boost 2.0.

The runner up is Core i5 3439Y with the same amount of cores, threads and base clock of 1.5 GHz. The difference reflects in Turbo Boost 2.0 which tops 200 MHz less than on the i7 version. Next in the line is 1 MB less cache, making it only 3 MB instead of 4 MB for i7 Y series.

Both CPUs support DDR3 and DDR3L at 1600MHz with SDP expected to be at 7W. For those who don't know what SDP is, it stands for Standard Dissipation Power which is average usage consumption.
