Full list with prices
Although we have been writing about Intel's Sandy Bridge lineup for quite some time, the guys from Expreview managed to score a full list of upcoming Sandy Bridge CPUs including the release date and the launch price.
The specifications are pretty much what we have been writing for a while and there are no surprises. The interesting details is that Intel only plans to launch its quad-cores on 9th of January while the rest of the lineup should follow up in late February and in Q2 2011 for some Pentium branded models.
The quad-core linup includes three Core i7 models, and seven Core i5 models, including the Core i7-2600K, 2600, 2600S and four different Core i5-2500 models and Core i5 2400S, 2400, and Core i5-2300. The top-notch Core i7-2600K will be priced at US $317 while the top Core i5-2500K will have a US $216 price tag.
The Core i3 models are scheduled for 20th of February and it looks like Intel plans to launch four models, rangin from 2.5GHz tto 3.3GHz. All of the Core i3 Models will be dual-core, four-thread models with 3MB of cache. The top offer is the Core i3-2390T working at 2.7GHz with 3.5GHz Turbo and a 35W TDP, as well as the Core i3-2120 working at 3.3GHz but with a slightly higher 65W TDP.
The some sort of novelty are the Pentium branded dual core models and according to the Expreview list, the first one is the Pentium G620T, clocked at 2.2GHz with 3MB of cache and a 35W TDP. This one will come out on 27th of February, have a US $70 price tag and will be followed by by three more Pentium models slated for Q2 2011.
