    Intel's 7W Y-Series is actually 13W TDP CPU

    at Fudzilla

    "During its CES keynote Intel talked a lot about its 10W Ivy Bridge Y-series chips and even said that they managed to surpass its goal and that we will see a #$%$ Y-Series CPU as well. Unfortunately, it looks like Intel's slide was a bit misleading and Intel was actually talking about Scenario Design Point rather than the Termal Design Point.

    To make things worse, out of the entire Y-Series, only a single SKU will be able to reach the targeted 10W TDP while others are still at 13W. The 7W number, according to Intel chaps, is actually the Scenario Design Point, or a way for Intel to give manufacturers that want to squeeze a 13W TDP CPU in a, for example, tablet that can deal only with 7W of TDP....."

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
