Intel Unveils Fastest Laptop Chips Ever With the New Intel Core i7 Mobile Processor

Intel Corporation introduced its revolutionary Intel Core i7 Mobile Processor and Intel Core i7 Mobile Processor Extreme Edition today, bringing Intel’s award-winning and super-fast Nehalem microarchitecture to the mobile market.

These processors in addition to the new Intel PM55 Express Chipset, provide the best laptop experience for intense gaming, digital media, photos, music, business applications and other multi-threaded software that hungers for faster processing speed. The chips also boost overall performance when using several of these applications simultaneously.

"With intelligent features like Intel Turbo Boost Technology, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology and a host of others, Intel has revolutionized the laptop PC processor, delivering performance when you need it, energy efficiency when you don’t," said Dadi Perlmutter, executive vice president and general manager, Intel Architecture Group. "For the first time, mobile users can choose a laptop that delivers Internet-server like speed, right in their laps for the most demanding tasks, from intense gaming to digital video editing and social media applications."

Formerly codenamed "Clarksfield," Intel Core i7 mobile processors offer Intel Turbo Boost Technology, which can accelerate the processor clock speed up to 75 percent to match workloads, as well as better performance on highly threaded applications with the power of Intel Hyper-Threading Technology. The new Intel Core i7 mobile processors also include two-channel DDR3 1333 MHz memory support and full 1 x16 or 2 x8 PCI Express 2.0 graphics. Whether users are editing a video, composing a song, playing a video game or updating their Facebook status with the latest YouTube video craze, Intel Core i7 mobile processors adapt to provide the right processing power for the task, with more performance and flexibility to match their on-the-go needs.

Laptops with Intel Core i7 mobile processor Extreme Edition support Intel Extreme Memory Profiles (Intel XMP) and Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, the ultimate tuning utility making it possible to overclock3 and fine tune your laptop for incredible performance and battery life optimizations. In addition, the Intel PM55 Express Chipset enables high-end workstation and gaming laptops to support features such as Intel Matrix Storage Technology, Intel High-Definition Audio, and increased I/O interfaces.

Pricing and Availability
Leading OEMs including Asus, Dell, HP and Toshiba began shipping laptops today based on Intel Core i7 mobile processors, with additional systems from OEMs available in the coming months. 1ku pricing for the Intel Core i7-920XM, Intel Core i7-820QM and Intel Core i7-720QM mobile processors is $1,054, $546 and $364, respectively.Source: Intel

overclock3's a typo right?

anyway this is awesome, unlike the desktop i7 processors some vendors have crammed into notebooks maybe the mobile i7 wont empty the battery in 10 minutes :toast:

I kind of regret buying a laptop for college early, but I had no choice, as I am using that laptop now! Hopefully my P8700 will last! Those i7's look juicy though...

Yep and my T7200 looks wimpy by comparison.

Looks like gaming laptops could be here shortly. All they need is to implement the 58xx series cards with this.

That will be a while though and you know it! Have a gfx card in a laptop running at 220w is going to eat the battery fast.

True. But I guess any high performance card in a laptop would do. And yeah, it would eat the life out of that battery.

Course they'll run hot :laugh: But it would be great for sitting outside when it's cold :roll:

I love how they hold up the new processors... for all we know he could be holding old P4 chips, and the press would eat it up.

"These processors ................provide the best laptop experience for intense gaming"

I would like to see that if they came with integrated intel graphics :laugh:

Onto the gaming benchmarks.........old cs:s 17fps @ 1920:1200 lol

Last I checked, dedicated graphics cards were way more important than a beastly quad core, since most games currently only support, ?? 1 to 2 threads??

I guess people in marketing dont know these thing though, ah well.

How can a press release talk about "energy efficiency" without mentioning the TDP? With the chipset cost sitting at $40, manufacturers can't even get the platform going for less than $400, and that's without taking into consideration the graphics horsepower necessary to make the thing useful, or even run Aero relatively well. I mean really, all these things are good for is crunching numbers, and unless you're the desktop-replacement type, why not just get a desktop?

Anand pegs the TDP at around 55W. That's ridiculous for a mobile processor. It really doesn't matter how low the idle power is, because one way or another your power delivery system (AC adapter) and cooling mechanism (HSF) need to be able to handle the thing at max capacity, meaning these laptops are going to be chunky.

And what's all this about "intense gaming" anyway? Haven't we already proven that there are almost no graphics solutions (and absolutely no mobile graphics solutions) which benefit from this kind of power? It's not like the CPU is going to do it by itself... I doubt this thing outpaces a relatively quick Core 2 Duo in most games, even if you paired it with a mobile 4870. Crossfire configurations? Maybe a 10% boost, but at that point "efficiency" isn't the name of the game anyway...

Mind you, if you're in the $3,000+ laptop market, you ought to be happy, but for the majority of users this is just Intel blowing steam as usual.

p.s. Using the phrase "the latest YouTube video craze" makes you sound really, really old and out of touch with your consumers. Who are you trying to appeal to anyway? Teenagers? They haven't got the money for this stuff! Also, unless it can scale down to Atom-like efficiency, I deny the claim that this thing can "provide the right processing power" for users "updating their Facebook status."

Love the hat

Is that "Commander Mobile" in the beret? :laugh: "Here is Intel's new mobile CPU, and this time we mean war!"

someone should call the fashion police though
Huh? :confused:

Anyway, does anyone know when the Mobile Core i5's will arrive? Q1 2010? That's what I'm really interested in... :cool:

With you on this one, fed up of people getting excited over hot air (you know who you are!).

In other news, larabee can do raytracing... in quake wars... slowly... a couple of frames a second.

Amd you've gone too quiet, Intel gets more buzz than your new graphics card release. :banghead:

Dunno most likely will be a cut down I7 (without hyper threading) with the pm55 chipset.

wtf is the TDP value?

if a Q9000 have 45watt

a i7 mobile will start from 45w to up....

but this is a desktop replacement not a laptop... a laptop have 35watt maximum...

or... intel soon will sale ..... nuclear batteries for laptops :D

would be perfect as a mobile workstation for someone that works with cad, other than that i dont really see people spending thousands just so thay can play extremly cpu intencive games on the go
