New Core M models feature higher clock speeds


— 9:20 AM on November 3, 2014

Barely two months after its launch, Intel's Core M family has already expanded. CPU-World has the goods on the new additions to the series, which all feature higher graphics clock speeds—and, in some cases, higher CPU clock speeds, as well.

Here they are next to the original members of the Core M family, which I've helpfully grayed out:

Core M 5Y70 2/4 1.1 2.6 4 HD Graphics 5300 100/850 1600 4.5
Core M 5Y51 2/4 1.1 2.6 4 HD Graphics 5300 300/900 1600 4.5
Core M 5Y31 2/4 0.9 2.4 4 HD Graphics 5300 300/850 1600 4.5
Core M 5Y10c 2/4 0.8 2.0 4 HD Graphics 5300 300/800 ? 4.5
Core M 5Y10a 2/4 0.8 2.0 4 HD Graphics 5300 100/800 1600 4.5
Core M 5Y10 2/4 0.8 2.0 4 HD Graphics 5300 100/800 1600 4.5

Base IGP clock speeds have tripled from 100 to 300MHz in all cases, and some of the newcomers have higher peak IGP speeds of 850 and 900MHz, as well. And Intel hasn't neglected CPU clock speeds. The Core M Core M 5Y71 has a 100MHz higher base speed and a 300MHz higher Turbo speed than the former flagship, the 5Y70. Also, the chipmaker has filled the gap between the 5Y10a and 5Y70 with some new options, the fastest of which is similar to the 5Y70 but with faster integrated graphics.

All of the new chips are listed on Intel's ARK website with a quoted "launch date" of "Q4'14." Members of the original Core M lineup, which have a "Q3'14" launch date on the ARK site, have already started popping up in ultrathin systems like Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro.
