Released June, 2012
  • 1.9 GHz
  • Dual core
7.6 Out of 10

The Intel-Core i7 3517U is an ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) processor, released in the second quarter of 2012, of the Ivy Bridge series. It’s a dual-core processor, designed for laptops, but due to Hyperthreading it’s capable of handling up to four simultaneous threads at once. Each core is clocked at 1.9GHz, but can be Turbo Boosted to 2.8GHz. New features, when compared to older models, include PCI Express 3.0 and DDR3(L)-1600 support. The GPU integrated in the 3517U is an Intel HD Graphics, clocked at 350MHz. The 3517U easily outperforms by about a tenth, some of the earlier i7 models.
