Intel introduced a pair of new dual-core ultra-low voltage processors, the Core i5-3439Y and Core i7-3689Y, based on the current 22 nm "Ivy Bridge" architecture. The two feature a stunning 13W TDP, and are designed for cool Ultrabooks, with minimal cooling. The Core i5-3439Y features a nominal clock speed of 1.50 GHz, with 2.30 GHz maximum Turbo Boost, HyperThreading enabling four logical CPUs, 3 MB of L3 cache, and an SDP (scenario driven power) of just 7W. It is priced at US $250. The Core i7-3689Y, on the other side, features the same 1.50 GHz nominal clock speed, but a higher maximum Turbo Boost frequency of 2.60 GHz, and 4 MB of L3 cache. Other features are identical between the two. The i7-3689Y is priced at $362.

I thought the whole point of ultrabooks was that they are supposed to be notebooks with productivity on par with low-end desktops. 1.5 GHz isnt all that inspiring.

If i wanted a very weak, very cold, and very thin device - I'd get a tablet. Why would i want ultrabook that is just a little bit stronger but at 2-3 times the price ?

Why dont they do this to a Pentium/i3 and call that Atom and profit from it. Why make a useless i7, mostly having the specs the same as an ULV i5 when paired with an ULV chipset you could throw these in netbooks and let the old Atoms be forgotten.

2.5 Ghz Turbo. BUT... from what I understand about the "scenario driven power" is that only one core gets boosted to that level at any given time, the others stay at the 1.5Ghz. With IMC, it's still a powerful system.

It's always a tradeoff between speed and power consumption.

Prices

Take an i3-3220 or one of low power i3-3xxx models (or i5/i3 standard or low voltage for notebooks/ultrabooks).

-Underclock it
-Undervolt it
-(optional) turn off one core
-(optional) turn off HT
-Use single DDR3 module @1.35V (or 1.5V undervolted to 1.35V)
-Save $150-250
