Core i3 listed in all its glory

Blame Canada


A Canadian
retailer is listing Intel's upcoming Core i3 530 for $152.

The processor is clocked at 2993MHz, has 2 x 256Kb of L2 cache and 4MB of L3, 733MHz graphics and a 22x multiplier. Of course, it's an LGA 1156 part, but at 73W its TDP is rather high for a 32nm processor.

Bear in mind that this is the slowest Core i3 Intel plans to launch. The rest of the series will feature higher clocks in both the CPU and graphics department, as well as hyperthreading and Turbo features.

All in all, the 530 and 540 don't really look all that appealing. They will cost €85/$125 and €95/$145 respectively, so they're not very cheap either. Consumers looking for affordable processors should probably stick to older 45nm parts. (Or just buy an AMD. sub.ed.)

You can find the listing here, at least until Intel forces the retailer to take it down.
