As Ivy Bridge nears release, some more details on the processors are showing up — this time from Intel's own site. Yesterday, CPU World spotted a PDF labeled "New 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors" on Intel's Retail Edge subsite. The slideshow turned out to contain a list of all Intel desktop and laptop processors to be released from January to April 2012, including Core i7-3xxx and i5-3xxx chips. The new i3 models are as absent as they've been in previous leaks, but as CPU World points out, you'll see two new ultra-low voltage i5 and i7 processors. The other specs corroborate the details posted before by Intel partners.
The two ultra-low voltage processors listed are the Core i7-3517U and Core i5-3317U, both of which were first detailed a few hours before the leak by VR-Zone. The i5-3317U is listed in both places as having a standard speed of 1.7GHz and a Turbo Boost speed of up to 2.6GHz. VR-Zone puts the i7-3517U at 1.9GHz and 3GHz for standard and turbo respectively, but the Intel PDF puts both at 3GHz in what we imagine is a typo. The third new processor is apparently called the i3-3217U, and is supposed to clock in at 1.8GHz with no turbo option, but was absent from the PDF.
Intel has pulled the file since yesterday, but a copy that appears to match what we got from the original PDF Google cache has been archived here. There's no date on the PDF, though it may precede Intel's Ivy Bridge delay since the new chips are still listed in the January to April window. There's not a lot of new information here, but it looks to confirm at least some of the leaks that we've been seeing elsewhere.
