Intel has silently added a new Core i7 processor to its mobile line-up. The Core i7-3632QM is intended for more powerful laptops, priced around £799.
The processor has four cores, a 2.2 GHz clock frequency, and a TDP of just 35 watts. This is 10 watts less than the earlier i7-3635QM and i7-3630QM and i7-3630QM models, which are clocked at 2.4 GHz. At the time of writing, the new 3632QM is Intel's best compromise between low power consumption and performance. While a recommended price has not yet been announced, we expect it to be around £299.
