Four new Sandy Bridge Celeron and Pentium CPUs


According to the details leaked via Intel's Material Declaration Data Sheets (MDDS) database, it appears that Intel will introduce five new budget CPUs based on Sandy Bridge architecture and will refresh its Celeron and Pentium lineups. The new refresh is expected on June 3rd.

MDDS database shows info on Celeron G550, as well as Pentium G640, G640T and G870 models. The entire lineup is made of dual-core CPUs based on Sandy Bridge architecture. The lineup kicks off with the Celeron G550, which is pretty much the same as the currently available Celeron G540 but with a 100MHz clock bump. It packs 2MB of L3 cache, works at 2.6GHz and has a TDP set at 65W.

The Pentium lineup also gets slightly faster versions of the G630, G630T and G860. Pentium G640 works at 2.8GHz has 3MB of L3 cache and a 65W TDP. Pentium G640T has the same 3MB of L3 cache but drops the clock down to 2.4GHz in order to fit the 35W TDP. Last but not the least is the Pentium G870 clocked at 3.1GHz, same 3MB of L3 cache and 65W TDP.

The price is set at US $52 for the Celeron G550, US $64 for both the G640 and G640T and US $86 for the Pentium G870.
