Leaked Intel Roadmap Details New Fall Core CPUs

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 49 comments

Wondering what Intel has planned for the rest of 2010 and 2011? Well, read on!

We've already seen laptops with Intel's new ULV Core i-series but it seems the company has quite a bit planned for this year. Engadget has uncovered and published an Intel roadmap detailing the chip giants entire fall collection.

Engadet reports that, aside from the previously rumored successor to the Core i5-540M (the 2.66GHz / 3.33 GHz Core i5-580M) and the Core i7-740QM/840QM, we can also expect a few more dual-cores at the end of the year. These will come in the form the 2.8GHz Core i7-640M (which turbos to 3.46GHz) and the 2.66GHz / 3.2GHz Core i5-560M.

Intel is also going hell for leather when it comes to Ultra Low Voltage chips. Q4 will bring us two 15W chips: a high-end Core i7-680UM (1.46GHz and turbos up to 2.53GHz) and a Core i5-560UM (1.33GHz / 2.13GHz). There'll also be a 25W Core i7-660LM that clocks in at 2.26GHz.

Engadget reports that all of these will have on die Intel HD graphics to tide us over until 2011 when we'll get WiMax, WiDi and Intel Bluetooth along with a new energy saving concept called Zero Power ODD. Zero Power will offer a power-saving sleep mode for noisy optical drives and enough battery life to play two Blu-ray movies on a single charge.

    killerclickAMD is dead, they should just give up instead of confusing the market with their continued pathetic existence.


    The moment AMD stops selling cpu's is the moment Intel will increase its prices by 200 percent. Without competition, Intel can set whatever price it wants.

    Come on AMD, release something that will benefit us, the customers. More competition is always better.

    AMD i know for a fact is solely working on bulldozer its a rebuilt CPU (not a phenom) with a ATI 5770 video card ON die!, this is going to KILL intel in games and in photoshop, bulldozer will also work in CF with any other 5xxx series card and 6xxx series card using GPU parallisation.
    The Bulldozer will Smoke the Core i7 and Core i9 in games, AND there is a rumour also that they are going to let the GPU do some FPU if this si true its good bye intel for the CPU performance crown, and its coming out Q1 2011

    Dude, go back to your Intel fanboy base. If you think AMD is crappy, have some logic behind it you clueless dolt. And don't respond with that Intel has faster processors bs becuase they both cater to different markets. And how theu f are they "confusing" the market? Its very existence is stopping Intel to have a monopoly on CPUs and therefore charging w/e the hell they want to.

    c'mon now... you deserve to be slapped. In anycase it is an interesting road-map, but none of it sounds spectacular (must have). but then again, I'm not into mobile platforms from either AMD or Intel, i thought this was the Desktop road-map when i opened the link, not the mobile.

    Before you're so critical, try to be smarter.

    Intel processors are roughly the same size as AMD, and perform a lot better. And i7 9xx and Phenom quad are very, very close in size. But, not in performance.

    AMD is forced to be a bottom-feeder because of this reality, not because they chose to go after a different market. If they made a chip half the size that was cheaper, great. It's the same size, but it's just badly designed and has to be sold at low margins because it's inferior.

    But, Killerclick is maybe more clueless. I don't know why he thinks AMD is confusing the market. Intel does that by itself. i7 860/870 cross i7 930. i5 670/680 cross i5 750. Some i5s are quads, some not. Some i7s are real Nehalems, some are Lynnfields. Then they have the i5 750s, which doesn't clock the same as the i5 750.

    To me, AMD makes a Hell of a lot more sense than Intel.

    No one was telling Intel to leave the market when they were producing the Pentium 4. AMD sells junk processors now, we all know that. We all knew that Intel sold junk with the Pentium 4. Did that mean they couldn't come out with something better? So why assume AMD can't? At least AMD knows they sell rubbish and price it accordingly. Intel was still overpriced when they sold the Pentium 4.

    AMD is forced to make great, affordable, quality chips? Wow, how horrible for them. Apparently Intel could use some forcing too.

    Ok, normally I'm able to swing with the punches when a company starts doing weird things with product branding and model number's, but this one is a bit confusing for me, so some comments or an explanation would be much appreciated.

    I thought the "i7" brand was reserved for procs described as having quad/hexa cores with 8/12 threads, but if I'm understanding this article correctly, they're saying that now intel is making a mobile version of i7 that only has 2 cores?

    I mean, I agree that sub-25 watt power consumption is impressive, but if this really is a dual core system then I wouldn't be surprised if someone ends up buying a laptop thinking they're getting the power of 8 threads at 25watts or less to then find out they essentially have half that power...

    Your thoughts everyone?

    More money than brains that's for sure. You speak through your @$$. Intel hasn't dropped its prices in what 3 years? Core2duo's are still the about same price as the originals.

    Whatever happened to that Intel i9 CPU that was coming this year?
    Edit: Just found out it changed name to i7 980X..

    wow two full blu ray movies on a full charge is pretty good progress in terms of batter life and processor saving,how about heat from the laptop?

    Magny cours is not bulldozer. It's still based on the AMD K10 45nm. The stepping is identical to the Phenom IIx6. So, I guess they already have. What you want is bulldozer and Zambezi.
    If I am mistaken and magney cours is bulldozer, I am very disappointed with the performance per core.

    Yeah, because everyone cares about you and how rich you are. You got the money to buy everyone else in the world a new CPU?
