Powering Amazing Experiences in Powerful Laptops

Fast I/O and great flexibility in the mobile Intel® CM238 chipset offer visibly amazing performance.

The mobile Intel® CM238 chipset line brings in fast I/O capabilities with great flexibility and a host of other power packed features to compliment the performance benefits of mobile 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and the Intel® Xeon® E3-1500M v6 processor family. The Intel® CM238 chipset introduces a number of new technologies and several feature enhancements that offer visibly amazing performance.

Exciting Sensor-Enhanced Applications
With Intel’s Context Sensing SDK, third-party software vendors can develop exciting sensor-enhanced applications, from gaming to productivity to wellness apps, which benefit from the contextual and sensor information provided by the device.

With Intel® CM238 chipset, Intel brings PCIe* Gen 3 support for the first time to a Platform Controller Hub (PCH). PCIe* Gen 3 offers higher data transfer rates of 8 GT/s compared with PCIe* Gen 2 speeds of 5 GT/s. In addition, the chipset offers more than twice the number of PCIe* lanes compared to the 9 series PCH. The increased number of ports at a higher data transfer speeds enable snappier systems. In addition, the latest Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) 15 with Intel® CM238 chipset supports NVMe* PCIe* x4 Intel® Solid State Drive. The chipset also offer Intel® Integrated Sensor Solution dedicated to managing the inertial and environmental sensors, performing sensor fusion and delivering advanced algorithms that add innovative new sensor-enhanced capabilities. Intel has also released the Context Sensing SDK so that third-party software vendors can develop exciting sensor-enhanced applications, from gaming to productivity to wellness apps, which benefit from the contextual and sensor information provided by the device.

Finally, the Intel® CM238 chipset offers a host of incremental features compared to the 9 series PCH such as additional USB 3.0 ports, and faster data transfer between the processor and the PCH with Direct Media Interface (DMI) 3.0. In addition, it offers the same great security features as prior generations while providing enhancements such as platform Intel® Platform Trust Technology (Intel® PTT) 3.0.
