New Intel mobile CPUs launched

Yesterday Intel launched large number of Haswell and Ivy Bridge based microprocessors for desktop market. The most noteworthy products there were new Pentium and Core i3 CPUs, implemented on Haswell microarchitecture. Along with desktop chips, Intel also released very impressive lineup of mobile processors, starting from standard and ultra-low power Celerons, and up to Core i7 high-performance model with Iris Pro graphics.

New mobile lineup includes one or more processors for mainstream notebooks for each market segment. Entry-level products are Celeron 2950M and Pentium 3550M, both having 2 CPU cores, 2 MB of last level cache and HD-capable graphics. Mid-class Core i3-4000M and i3-4100M add support for Hyper-Threading technology and AXV/AVX2 instructions, and the 4100M also supports AES instructions. The graphics on standard power Core i3 chips is upgraded to HD 4600. In addition to all Core i3 features, Core i5s and i7s also support PCI Express 3.0, and Turbo Boost technology. All models of this class fit into 37 Watt thermal envelope, and produced in a socketable package. The official prices of mainstream chips range from $86 and up to $346.

New high-performance processors are Core i5-4200H and Core i7-4960HQ, The former is a dual-core chip with 3 MB L3 cache and HD 4600 graphics, and the latter processor has 4 CPU cores, 6 MB cache and HD 5200 GPU, also called Iris Pro 5200. Both parts have 47 Watt TDP.

New lineup includes quite a few ultra lower "U" processors with 15 Watt TSP, and "Y" parts with 11.5 Watt TDP. All "U" and "Y" products are implemented as systems on a chip, and they have full chipset logic embedded on a chip. The SoCs incorporate two CPU cores, and have Hyper-threading technology enabled on all Core-branded processors. Celerons and Pentiums come with HD graphics. Core "U" chips feature HD 4400 GPU, clocked at up to 1.1 GHz, whereas Core "Y" chips have HD 4200 graphics, operating at up to 850 MHz. The "U" and "Y" microprocessors are clocked at up 2.1 GHz and 1.7 GHz respectively, with the maximum Turbo Boost frequencies reaching 3.3 GHz and 2.9 GHz.

4200H vs 4200M?

What's that odd 4200H? Besides being higher clocked, which is strange given the same 4200 base model number, it's +10W TDP than 4200M and most/all other *M models. Integrated RAM for 3D?

Nah, I don't think so. I can't find any precedents where "H" index used to mean a better integrated graphics.

I also think there must be an error in this article. You see, a very basic Intel HD Graphics controller can't be a part of Celeron 2955U as far as it has "5" mark at the end of its name. It definately should be something like HD Graphics 4400 (with 20+ compute units).
