Q3 launch


Our beloved Lost Swede over at VR-Zone has shed some light on Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge Core i3 desktop lineup scheduled to launch sometime in Q3 2012. The full lineup will include a total of five models ranging from 2.8GHz clocked Core i3-3220T all the way up to the 3.4GHz Core i3-3240.

As you already know, Intel is currently streaching its Ivy Bridge launch and we'll first see Core i5 and Core i7 parts sometimes this month (29th or 23rd April depeding on which rumors are you following), while Core i3 parts are scheduled to launch at still unknown date in Q3 this year. According to the report over at VR-Zone, Intel's Core i3 lineup is devided in standard and T-models, latter intended for all-in-one systems. The standard models are rated at a 55W TDP while T-models are cut down to 35W TDP.

The standard lineup kicks off with 3.3GHz Core i3-3220 and also includes 3.3GHz Core i3-3225 and 3.4GHz Core i3-3240. Unlike the Core i3-3220 and Core i3-3240, the Core i3-3225 will be the only Core i3 part that will sport Intel HD 4000 graphics part while the rest of the lineup will stick to Intel HD 2500 graphics. The T-model lineup includes the aforementioned 2.8GHz Core i3-3220T and 3GHz clocked Core i3-3240T. It is important to note that we are talking here about dual-core CPUs with hyper threading and all models will feature 3MB of L3 cache. Another nice novelty is the added support for AES to all new Core i3 models.

The expected price of the Ivy Bridge Core i3 lineup should be somewhat similar to the price of their Sandy Bridge counterparts. As noted, the precise date is not carved in stone as Intel is currently focused solely on Core i5 and Core i7 launch.
