New Intel Amber Lake-Y details emerge

Intel announced the Amber Lake-Y CPUs back at Computex in June, but core count or frequency details were not provided. This week, Dell and NextLab501 revealed names and specs for three Amber Lake-Y CPUs, and it looks like the new ULV chips should come with increased frequencies, but the core configuration and the iGPU remain the same.

Earlier this week, Dell’s Chilean site spilled the beans about the upcoming XPS 13 2-in-1 models that would be powered by Intel’s Amber Lake-Y CPUs. New details about the CPU specs were just revealed by Romanian site NextLab501, while MacRumors claims that these refreshed ULV chips could also power the upcoming MacBooks.

Intel is expected to officially reveal the new 14 nm++ Amber Lake-Y CPUs any day now. The new ULV CPUs are based on the 8th gen architecture, but the only things that differentiate them from the older Kaby Lake-Y counterparts are the boosted core frequencies and the slightly increased 5 W TDP. These are still dual-core-quad-thread chips with 4 MB L3 cache and Intel even kept the same UHD 615 iGPUs. Here are the three models and their respective specs:

•    Core M3-8110Y: 1.1 GHz base clock, 2.7 GHz dual-core turbo clock (3.4 GHz single-core)
•    Core i5-8200Y: 1.3 GHz base clock, 3.2 GHz dual-core turbo clock (3.9 GHz single-core)
•    Core I7-8500Y: 1.5 GHz base clock, 3.6 GHz dual-core turbo (4.2 GHz single core)

Liliputing notes that the actual TDP may vary between 3.5 W and 7 W so that OEMs can further tune the processors for increased performance or improved battery life. Moreover, the Amber Lake-Y CPUs should be as fast as the 15 W models in some less demanding applications. Since these are ultra-low voltage chips, they are most likely to be included with ultrabooks and fanless mini PCs.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
