The Intel Core m7-6Y75 is the fastest processor in the power-efficient Core M “Skylake” chip family, oftentimes used in ultra-thin and fanless laptops and 2-in-1 PCs. Just like its lower-end m3-6Y30 and m5-6Y54 brothers, the m7-6Y75 features two cores and a power consumption of only 4.5 Watts, down from 15 Watts of the mainstream Core i series. The m7 has a higher clock speed as the main specs advantage over the m3 and m5.
Intel Core m7-6Y75 “Skylake” Benchmark
Benchmark results show only marginal difference between it and its m5 sibling. On the other hand, the Core m series CPUs don’t lag greatly behind their Core i counterparts, despite a huge difference in power consumption.
For the average user, it’s worth noting that the m7, just like the m3 and m5, can perfectly handle the daily computing chores. So, web surfing, work in popular productivity apps like Word and Excel, multimedia playback, and similarly light tasks can be done without a hiccup. The processor has some basic gaming potential, too, thanks to its Intel HD 515 integrated graphics. If you’re, however, into demanding tasks like video and photography editing and do them on daily basis, a Core i5 or i7, and preferably their quad-core versions, are the way to go. But, these consume much more power, require larger and noisier cooling solutions, and can’t be put in extremely thin machines.
