Procesadores Core i7 Quad y Core i7 Extreme para Laptops

Intel ha anunciado el lanzamiento de la línea de procesadores Core i7 Quad Mobile y Core i7 Extreme Mobile para portátiles.

Inicialmente se dispondrá de los procesadores i7-720QM a 1.6 GHz, i7-820QM 1.73 GHz de la línea Core 2 Quad y i7-920XM a 2 GHz de la línea Core i7 Extreme.

Los procesadores podrán llegar hasta 2,8 GHz, 3,06 GHz y 3.2 GHz respectivamente gracias a la tecnología Turbo Boost.

Otras de las características que lo convierten en los procesadores más potentes para portátiles son los cuatro núcleos nativos, ocho hilos de ejecución, 8 Mbytes de caché de tercer nivel y TDP de 45 y 55 vatios respectivamente.

El chipset de para estos procesadores es el PM55 Express con socket de 37,5 milímetros rPGA.

Today Intel has released their next generation of mobile performance platforms designed with gamers and multimedia enthusiasts in mind. The new platform consists of an Intel Core i7 ‘Clarksfield’ mobile processor and the new Intel PM55 Express chipset. The result is a laptop platform that will leave any desktop more than a few years old running for cover!

Turbo Boost Technology on the Core i7 mobile processors, Intel provides this example of how the CPU will automatically combine turbo performance with disabling cores depending on how many threads you are actually using. So with the Core i7-920XM, the CPU will automatically overclock up to 2.26 GHz (up from the base frequency of 2.0 GHz) when you are using all 4 cores. It will then overclock up to 3.06 GHz when using two cores, and all the way up to 3.20 GHz when just using a single core. This is how the Core i7-920XM maintains a max TDP of 55W; by using the power saved by disabling unused cores to boost the frequency of the cores in use, the new i7 mobile processors will put the performance where you need it!
Intel also offers a widget for Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit) to display the current frequency of your processor. We found that the widget was a little slower to respond to the frequency change when compared to CPU-Z, but it is still useful to get an idea what stage your CPU is currently in.
