(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.
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.
