(Phys.org)—News from Intel on Ivy Bridge microarchitecture involves the rollout of eight new SKUs (processor unique identifier part numbers) to Celeron and Pentium families as well as a new Core chip. Translation: Intel's latest processors has now arrived at a budget-friendly line. With the release of pricing and specs for three Celeron family CPUS, G1610, G1610T and G1620, four Pentiums, G2010, G2020 and G2020T and G2130 and a new Core i3-3210, available now.
Processors based on Intel's Ivy Bridge were already available but confined to the mid- to high-end. This has now changed with the release of Celeron, Pentium, and Core CPUs, and they are all compatible with existing Socket 1155 motherboards.
The Core i3-3210 is 3.2GHz, 3MB Cache, with up to four threads via Hyperthreading, 55 watts, priced at $117.
Celeron and Pentium models have two cores and two threads each.
Three new Celeron processors are priced from 42 to 52.
The Celeron G1610 is 2.6GHz, 2MB Cache, 2 cores/2 threads, 55 watts, at $42.
The Celeron G1610T is 2.3GHz, 2MB Cache, 2 cores/2 threads, 35 watts at $42 The Celeron G1620 – 2.7GHz, 2MB Cache, 2 cores/2 threads, 55 watts, priced at $52.
The four new Pentium processors are the G2010, G2020, G2120T, and G2130.
The Pentium G2010 is 2.8GHz, 3MB Cache, 2 cores/2 threads, 55 watts, at $64.
The Pentium G2020 is 2.9GHz, 3MB Cache, 2 cores/2 threads, 55 watts, $64. The Pentium G2020T is 2.5GHz, 3MB Cache, 2 cores/2 threads, 35 watts, at $64.
The Pentium G2130 is 3.2GHz, 3MB Cache, 2 cores/2 threads, 55 watts, at $96.
