Unreleased Mobile Ivy Bridge CPUs Spotted

CPU World published box numbers for the Core i7-3740QM and i7-3840QM, which will be positioned to support the current 2.6 GHz 3720QM and 2.7 GHz 3820QM models that are positioned on the high-end of the family.

There is not much room for clock speed tweaks for the 3740QM and 3840QM as the flagship model 3920XM already runs at 2.9 GHz. Still, it is pure speculation to talk about clock speeds at this time as Intel denied to comment on the unreleased CPUs. However, the 3840QM could ring in at 2.8 GHz.

While we agree that feature changes from the rest of the product family are somewhat unlikely, there is a reasonable chance that these two processors are limited production, on-demand SKUs for individual customers. Intel frequently offers special SKUs for large volume customers with special demands, such as Apple.

    Another article I have to click on a picture to see it bigger, brings me to another window that I still can't see the picture, have to click again to get a popup window to see the picture, then close a window, and go back on the browser to get back to the story. Is this 1995 on the web?

    cookoyThe picture gets bigger too.For what I can see you only get a blown up and blurred up version of the miniature image that is part of the article => Not a good solution.

  • These sound like CPUs down the line. Intel usually puts out 40 series to update 20 series. Typically there is an extra CPU bin in performance or a little extra cache size.

    I'm a lot more interested in the ultra low power IVB chips that are meant for ultrabooks/macbook air. Sandy bridge capped at dual 1.8 i7. I'd love to see a dual 2.5 or so ultra low power chip, couple that with HD4000 and could be a pretty sweet little portable.
