The First Intel Core M Skylake-Y Low Power Processors: Core M3 6Y30, M5 6Y54, M5 6Y57 and M5 6Y75

Last year, Intel unveiled Core M Broadwell-Y processors with 4.5W TDP aimed at laptops and tablets, and offering a middle ground between the performance achieved by Atom/Celeron/Pentium processor and the more powerful Core i3/i5/i7 processors. CPU World has now released details about the new Skylake-Y Core M processor that still feature 2 cores and 4 threads, as well as a TDP of 4.5W.


There are now four models:

Model Cores /
Frequency /
Graphics GPU
Core m3 6Y30 2 / 4 900 MHz / 2.2 GHz 4 MB HD 515 300 / 850 MHz 4.5 Watt
Core m5 6Y54 1.1 / 2.7 GHz 300 / 900 MHz
Core m5 6Y57 1.1 / 2.8 GHz 300 / 900 MHz
Core m5 6Y75 1.2 / 3.1 GHz 300 / 1000 MHz

The processors have the same number of cores and thread, the same amount of L3 cache, and the same HD515 GPU, which the only differences appearing be to the CPU and GPU frequencies.  The SoCs are sais to all have up to 2 SATA 6Gb/s ports, 10 lanes of PCI-Express interface, 6x USB2 & USB3 ports, eMMC 5.0 interface, as well as support for DDR3L-1600 and LPDDR3-1866 memory. Although they are rated at 4.5 Watt TDP and 3 Watt SDP, they can also run at 7 Watt TDP (cTDP up) if need be.

None of the processors are listed on Intel website at this time, and information is limited, but there are some benchmark results for a system based on M3 6Y30 processor, which you can compare to other systems.

will be interesting to see if Intel updates its soc with integrated fpa core to core m or sticks with atom

I sincerely hope we’ll finally see laptops use such chips to get some long-lasting battery runtime again. Laptops have become amazingly crappy these last years.

Will these aupport Android OS? Like Android TV set-top boxes?
