Intel Core i7-2677M Mobile processor - AV8062701041005
Intel Core i7-2677M is an ultra-low voltage (ULV) processor for high-performance ultra-thin and light laptops. Launched in June 2011, this 1.8 Ghz model had the best performance from all Intel ULV microprocessors, built on Sandy Bridge and earlier microarchitectures. The CPU is based on 32nm Sandy Bridge core, which combines two CPU cores, shared large L3 cache, graphics processing unit (GPU), memory controller, and PCI Express and Direct Media interfaces. Each CPU core on the Intel i7-2677M includes dedicated 64 KB (32KB + 32KB) first level and 256 KB unified second level caches. A 4MB third level cache is shared between the CPU cores and the integrated GPU. The graphics unit on the microprocessor belongs to HD 3000 class, and it can handle video 3D and/or HD content, as well as 3D graphics acceleration. Integrated memory controller, used to access system RAM, has two DDR3 memory channels, and supports up to 1333 MHz data rates.
The Core i7-2677M supports all performance enhancing and low-power features, that come with the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture. Incorporated Hyper-Threading technology allows each CPU core to execute two threads at once. Turbo Boost feature is used to bump processor frequency up to 2.9 GHz when only one core is operational. The i7-2677M also has Vpro technologies, comprised of VT-d virtualization and Trusted Execution. The CPU supports all instructions extensions up to AES acceleration instructions, and 256-bit Advanced Vector Extensions. Low-power features on this model include low-power states, and enhanced SpeedStep technology. Low-power states, used when one or both cores are idle, can significantly reduce power consumption by turning off power to some or all components of CPU cores. SpeedStep technology, used to reduce battery power in active mode, does it by lowering CPU clock frequency and core voltage.
The Core i7-2677M is manufactured in a micro-BGA package, which has lower
profile and smaller size than micro-PGA packages. The main disadvantage
of the micro-BGA package is that it can't be replaced or upgraded.

CPUs, related to Intel Core i7-2677M
Q: Is it possible to upgrade my Intel i7-2677M processor?
A: No. BGA microprocessors, like this one, are soldered on a board, for that reason upgrading or replacing them is extremely difficult.

Intel to retire Sandy Bridge mobile processors
Jan 15, 2013: Intel plans to discontinue a handful of Sandy Bridge microprocessors, including Core i5, i7 and Celeron ultra low voltage models, and quad-core Core i7 microprocessors. The processors will be end-of-lifed in the middle of this year, after the company completes transition to ivy Bridge microarchitecture and releases first Haswell mobile CPUs. Model numbers of affected processors were published today in two Product Change Notifications (PCNs).
Intel introduces ultra-low voltage mobile CPUs
Jun 19, 2011: Earlier this week we published a story about Intel "Sandy Bridge" mobile microprocessors, coming later this month. The list of confirmed models included Celeron 847, two embedded Celerons, Pentium B940, two embedded Core i3s, and three ultra-low voltage (ULV) Core i5/i7 SKUs. Today, Intel updated official price list with 4 ULV models: Celeron 847, Core i5-2557M, Core i7-2637M and i7-2677M.
Intel mobile CPUs to launch in June 2011
Jun 16, 2011: In the past few months, we published several stories detailing soon to be released Sandy Bridge mobile microprocessors. The stories referred to budget Celeron and Pentium CPUs, mainstream Core-branded processors for mid-class laptops, and ultra low voltage (ULV) 2nd generation Core chips for thin and light notebooks. Using notebook product availability dates, our sources, and information, previously disclosed by Fudzilla, we came up with a list of processors that will be launched this month. The list includes ULV Celeron 847, embedded Celeron 847E and B810E, Pentium B940, embedded Core i3-2330E and i3-2340UE, and ULV Core i5-2557M, i7-2637M and i7-2677M.
Intel readies Core i5 and Core i7 ULV CPUs
May 16, 2011: With the launch of dual-core Sandy Bridge mobile CPUs in February of this year, Intel also introduced several low-voltage and ultra-low voltage (ULV) models. ULV parts were assigned i5-25x7 and i7-26x7 processor numbers, and they featured 17 Watt combined Thermal Design Power for CPU cores and graphics, smaller BGA package, and generally higher, than Arrandale CPUs, core frequencies. Later this year, Intel plans to expand Sandy Bridge ULV line-up with three new processors, Core i5-2557M, Core i7-2637M and Core i7-2677M.
