Intel plans three ultraportable Core i5, i7 chips

Intel logoIntel is planning on releasing three new 32nm dual-core CPUs for ultrathin notebooks in the first half of next year, Digitimes reported on Thursday. Their notebook manufacturing sources claim the 1.2GHz Core i7-640UM, 1.06GHz Core i7-620UM and 1.06GHz Core i5-520UM would be aimed at the high- to mid-range ultraportable markets and replace the current 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo SU9600. As Core i7 models, the two faster chips would support Hyperthreading and sometimes give these chips the behavior of quad-core models.

In addition to these parts, the summer of 2010 will see the release of more new-generation notebook CPUs. This will include two more processors for mid-level notebooks and some CPUs for the entry-level market, including some based on earlier-generation hardware. This will also spell the demise of the current SU7300, SU2300 and Core 2 Solo SU3500 CPUs that Intel considers part of its CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) family. A new single-core Celeron chip will replace the existing Celeron 743, offering better performance at the exact same price.

In terms of desktops, it's still assumed Intel will ship its first 32nm processors in January. This includes Core i5-670 and Core i5-661 chips, priced at between $176 and $284 each in batches of 1,000.

The Core i7-640UM, Core i7-620UM and Core i5-520UM will be priced at $305, $278 and $241 in thousand-unit tray quantities, respectively. This should result in notebooks priced at about the same $500 in the first half of 2010 for notebooks equipped with the Pine Trail-M platform, while ultra-thin notebooks will be priced at between $600 and $800 in the third quarter.
