Intel ditches mobile Low Voltage CPUs with Ivy Bridge

Written by Slobodan Simic

Standard performance and Ultra family


According to the set of slides leaked earlier by VR-Zone Chinese, it appears that Intel will cut the number of product lines with mobile Ivy Bridge lineup down to two instead of three currently seen with Sandy Bridge lineup.

As you already know, the Sandy Bridge lineup has three product families, the so called standard voltage (SV) with nominal TDP set at 55W, 45W and 35W, Low Voltage (LV) with nominal TDP set at 25W and Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) CPUs with TDP set at 17W. With Ivy Bridge, the Low Voltage family is gone and we'll be looking at M-Series standard voltage ones with the same TDPs as with Ivy Bridge and U-Series Ultra family of CPUs with TDP set at 17W.

Of course, VR-Zone notes that Ivy Bridge lineup will have a programmable TDP on its mobile CPUS and that is probably the reason behind the cut of the 25W TDP LV lineup.
