Embedded Core i5-3610ME CPU coming in Q2
We previously reported about Intel plans to launch several embedded microprocessors along with consumer Ivy Bridge mobile parts, all based on not yet released Ivy Bridge (IVB) microarchitecture. This quarter Intel will introduce Core i7-3610QE, i7-3612QE, i7-3615QE quad-cores, as well as Core i7-3517UE and i7-3555LE dual-core models. Later this year we will see two embedded chips from Core i3 family, i3-3120ME and i3-3217UE. Additionally, we learned that this quarter the company will offer new embedded Core i5-3610ME model.
Despite of its high 3610ME processor number, the new chip will perform somewhere between Core i5-3320M and i5-3360M consumer CPUs. The embedded processor runs at 2.7 GHz, and supports Turbo Boost technology, that can bump frequency of one core under load up to 3.3 GHz. The i5-3610ME packs two CPU cores, 3 MB level 3 cache, and HD 4000 graphics, clocked at 650 MHz. The processor supports all IVB technologies and instruction set extensions, such as Hyper-Threading, Vpro, and AES and AVX, just to name a few. Intel i5-3610ME fits into 35 Watt thermal envelope, and it will be produced in PGA and BGA packages. PGA version of the chip comes with 950 MHz maximum Turbo frequency of integrated HD graphics, and does not support ECC memory. BGA version of the Core i5-3610ME does offer ECC support, and has higher 1.1 GHz graphics Turbo speed. As we already mentioned, the CPU will be released in Q2 2012. Core i5-3610ME in BGA package will replace Core i5-2515E, and PGA chip will replace i5-2510E.
