FUD Zilla heard Intel is working on another new ultra-low voltage Arrandale processor named Core i7 660UM, this chip is expected to be released in Q3 2010. It has a 18W TDP and a 1.3GHz clockspeed with 2.4GHz Turbo mode.
Intel plans yet another reinforcement to its Ultra low voltage generation of Arrandale CPUs. We still have to see Core i5 520UM, Core i5 540UM as well as Core i7 620UM and Core i7 640UM, all supposed to stay under 18W TDP, and Intel plans to introduce one, a bit faster version simply called Core i7 660UM.

This new CPU is based on the 32nm Arrandale dual-core that is capable of supporting four threads and it is clocked at a quite modest 1.33GHz. This is not bad for a CPU that has graphics and most of the chipset on the same socket. The best part, however, is that it will be able to overclock all the way to 2.4GHz.
