Intel Ivy Bridge

Intel just announced the release of the mobile version of its Ivy Bridge processors, and I figured it might be good to just do a quick round-up here.

For the desktop versions, which were announced a few weeks ago, they have a few models:

i5-3570, i5-3570s, i5-3475s, i5-3470, i5-3470t, i5-3470s.

For the mobile versions they have a few more:

i5,3210m, i5-3320m, i5-3360m, i7-3520m, and a few low power models:

i5-3317u, i5-3427u, i7-3517u, i7-3667u

Basically a higher model number usually means a better processor, and hence higher cost. And of course a i7 is faster than a i5 in terms of frequency. For the low power models, consumption is roughly half of that of its normal counterpart.

For the desktop models, the last 2 digits of the 4-digit model number represents the Intel HD graphics that is on the chip, 70 comes with the Intel HD graphics 2500, and 75 comes with the Intel HD graphics 4000.
