Expected in April 2012, the Ivy Bridge22nm processors for mainstream laptops are revealed, low-power modelsto Etrema Edition CPU through the classics. While Sandy Bridge isdivided into three categories, each Ivy Bridge will be classified inonly two versions: Ultra with the letter U to the reference and a TDPof 17W, and Standard Performance with the letter M and a TDP of 35W,45W or 55W.
This choice can be explained by thefact that the TDP processors Ivy Bridge can be adapted as required, atechnology missing from Sandy Bridge. The Intel HM75 and HM76 willequip most of the phones and are distinguished by the fact that theHM76 natively supports the USB 3.0 unlike the HM75.
The high-endchipset HM77 offers more support for RAID 0, Response and Smart USB2.0 ports 2 premium over conventional chipsets.
As a reminder, Smart Response allowsstart / stop and launches applications faster through the use of alow-capacity flash memory (SSD 20 GB card Mini-PCI Express forexample). The Intel UM77 models for low-power differs from HM77 byonly 4 SATA ports with a SATA 3.0 (6 Gb / s), 4 USB 2.0 and 4PCI-Express.
We also find the references of the first mobile processors Ivy Bridgeprovided, from Core i5Dual Core to Core i7 Extreme Quad Core. Theirname is of type ix-Core 3xxxM / U.
Thus the most powerful processors Ivy Bridge planned for futurelaptops of 2012 is the Core i7-3920XM, a model Extreme Editionclocked at 2.9 GHz (3.8 GHz Turbo mode) with 4 cores, 8 threads, anL3 Cache 8 MB and a TDP of 55W. It supports DDR3 1333/1600 MHz andincludes some Intel GMA 4000 HD DirectX 11 MHz clocked at 650-1300.
He will be accompanied by other IvyBridge Core i7, Core i7-3820QM at 2.7 GHz Core i7-3820QM at 2.6 GHz(Quad Core) and Core i7-3520m to 2.9 GHz (Dual Core).
