Intel readies to launch eight new chips

by on25 July 2011

Mid range and entry level
Intel is planning to introduce eight new mid range and entry level processors in the coming days, all based on the Sandy Bridge core.

Most of them are speed bumps of existing models, hence you can expect price cuts for the old models as well. The Core i5-2320 leads the way, with four non-hyperthreaded cores clocked at 3.0GHz, or 3.3GHz with Turbo. It is a 95 watt part priced at $177 in 1k units.

The Core i3 range will get three new parts, all with hyperthreading and sans Turbo. The Core i3-2130 is a 3.4GHz part with a 65W TDP and HD2000 graphics, priced at $138. The Core i3-2125 runs at 3.3GHz, but it features HD 3000 graphics and it costs $134. The Core i3-2120T is a 35W, clocked at 2.6GHz and with a price tag of $127.

There’s four new Pentiums to look forward to as well, all dual-cores and as you would expect, without hypethreading and Turbo. The G860 and G630 are clocked at 3.0GHz/2.7GHz respectively. Both are 65W parts and cost $86 and $64. The G630T and G530T are 35W parts clocked at 2.3GHz and 2GHz and they should ship for $70 and $47.
