Core i5 2310 comes in May

Written by Fuad Abazovic


100MHz faster than 2300, $177
Intel has already launched four Core i5 Sandy Bridge CPUs and it has figured out that one more would not hurt.

The company is preparing to launch Core i5 2310 a new CPU that is in fact just 100MHz faster version of existing Core i5 2300.

The new Core i5 2310 works at 2.9GHz has four cores and four threads. It also features 6MB of cache memory as well as the ability to work at 3.2GHz in Turbo mode. It supports 1066 / 1333MHz memory. The graphics part of this Sandy Bridge chip works at 850MHz at its minimum and 1100MHz in Turbo mode.

This new CPU should launch on May 22nd and it will sell for $177 in case you need at least a 1,000 of them.

Yo, Fuad... why no news about the GTX 590 costing $1150?

I would have expected it to be the top story today... people finally got actual specs, real pics of the card and most importantly pricing.

Quoting TechHog:

1150 is the official price of the Gigabyte Exclusive Bundle GTX 590. Even if it is a special edition, I saw some Australian prices (http;//staticice.com.au) and all of them for the simple 590 were above AUD 1000, most around AUD 1100. Given that AU's price are around 10% higher than those in the US, still $1000 is kinda over the top.

In other news, nobody cares about this new processor. Seriously. It's not a bad budget CPU I guess... (Budget in Intel terms, obviously.)
