Intel Corei3 More upcoming Intel CPUs priced, Pentium and Core i this time

Intel is going to be a busy company between now and the end of September, as beyond the entry level CPUs that we revealed the pricing of yesterday, Intel has a total of eight new desktop Pentiums and Core i processors launching. Three of the new models are low-power 35W models, with the remaining models being standard desktop parts.

Intel is going to be a busy company between now and the end of September, as beyond the entry level CPUs that we revealed the pricing of yesterday, Intel has a total of eight new desktop Pentiums and Core i processors launching. Three of the new models are low-power 35W models, with the remaining models being standard desktop parts.

Let's start with the T models which in Intel language mean that they're intended for small form factor systems and have a TDP of 35W. First up we have a new budget model at a mere US$47, the Pentium G530T which is a dual core 2GHz part with 2MB L3 cache. This is followed by the pricier US$70 G630T which has a faster clock speed at 2.3GHz and 3MB of L3 cache. The third and final new model in the T-series is the Core i3-2120T which is a US$127 part clocked at 2.6GHz, 3MB of L3 cache and Hyper Threading support. Sadly we don't have the spec for the graphics core clock for any of these models.

Moving on to the full-fat CPUs we start with the Pentium G630 which has the same US$64 pricing as the current G620, but it's 100MHz faster at 2.7GHz and that's the only difference between the two as the G630 retains the same graphics clock. The final Pentium model is the G860 which is also a simple speed bump to an even 3GHz and it'll be priced at US$86, the same price point as the current G850. That said the G850 will receive a price cut in October to US$75, putting it at the same price point as the G840.

That brings us to the Core i models which consist of three new models. The first and maybe most interesting model is the US$134 Core i3-2125, Intel's second Core i3 with HD 3000 series graphics. The Core i3-2125 is clocked at 3.3GHz, that's 200MHz faster than the current Core i3-2105 (priced at US$134 as well), although the graphics clock remains the same. This is followed by the Core i3-2130 which is a 3.4GHz model which comes in at US$138 and it's a 100MHz speed bump of the Core i3-2120, although once again we're looking at a price adjustment in October which will bring this model down to US$117.

The final new CPU is the Core i5-2320 which is yet another model that's 100MHz than its predecessor, the Core i5-2310. It even comes in at the same US$177 price point and there are no additional changes here either. Intel may yet have some surprises in store for us, but if the company does, then it's not in the roadmaps we've seen.
