Intel's low-powered Ivy Bridge chips out soon

A leaked roadmap of Intel’s rumoured lower power Ivy Bridge CPUs has been found in China.

The roadmap was found by VR-Zone China .

It shows that the new Ivy Bridge chips could be shown off at Intel’s CES booth or press conference and should be in the shops in the first quarter.

The chips will come out under the Pentium branding and will have a maxium TDP of 10W.

The first one will have two cores and two threads, three French hens, two turtle doves and the ubiquitous partridge in a pear tree.

However, it will not have Turbo Boost or HyperThreading and it only features 2MB of L3 cache. Graphics? Not unless you count “Intel HD Graphics” as being something remotely useful.

The next one is the Core i3 offering which has the catchy title, the i3-3229Y, which is a 13W TDP part. It will have HyperThreading and will come in a dual-core model clocked at 1.4GHz.

Then there are the i5s. The i5-3339Y is a dual-core chip which can manage hyperThreading and is clocked at 1.5GHz, with a max Turbo Boost of 2GHz.

The i5-3439Y is more or less the same but has a higher max Turbo Speed of 2.3GHz.

At the top of the ladder is the i7-3669Y which has a 1.5GHz base speed but can Turbo its way to 2.6GHz at a cost of 13W TDP. It will also come with 4MB of L3 cache.

The parts will use Intel’s 7W Scenario Design Power, meaning that they will draw only 7W if kept cooler than 80*C.

It can only keep its 14 watt thresholds if the processor temperature is kept below of 105*C.

The chips are clearly designed for Ultrabooks and tablets.
