Pentium at Sandy Bridge are finally here

Intel has formalized seven new processors built on the Sandy Bridge architecture. There are two i5 (i5-2310, i5-2405), Core i3 (i3-2105) and four Pentium (G620, G620T, G840, G850). Prices range from $ 205 to $ 64 for these models to the entry and midrange. The information comes from CPU World who has put his hand on the lists for OEMs.

The most powerful of the seven is the i5-2405. It has a TDP of 65 W and a 6 MB L3 cache quad core this is clocked at 2.5 GHz with a frequency of 3.3 GHz Turbo. It represents an update of the i5-2400 because it uses the chipset instead of the HD 3000 HD 2000. Core i3-2105, is also an update of the i3-2100 and enjoys the same trend.

This dual core processor supports HyperThreading. Clocked at 3.1 GHz, it has a 3 MB cache and a TDP of 65 W. They are respectively sold for $ 205 and $ 134. The most powerful graphics processor represents a respective increase of $ 17 and $ 10. The i5-2310 is identical to the i5-2300 and brings more than 100 MHz.

They are both priced at $ 177. Core i3 and i5 are improvements of existing Sandy Bridge, but we witness the delivery of the first Pentium using this architecture. The G620, G489 and G850 all have a TDP of 65 W and a 3 MB L3 cache are respectively clocked at 2.6 GHz, 2.8 GHz and 2.9 GHz and costs $ 64, $ 75 and $ 86 .

The Pentium G620T is a model of low-power 35 W running at 2.2 GHz and sold for $ 70. It should be designed for HTPC. These new processors compete with the Athlon X2 II charged the same price. Intel is faithful to the roadmap that we presented in our current "Roadmap of Intel platforms present and future." The Sandy Bridge architecture has been a departure marred by a manufacturing defect Chipset Series 6 (see "Intel's Sandy Bridge Bug: Point").

The problems are now resolved and the new processors of the firm are increasingly present in the hardware that we recommend every month. For memory, chips are etched into 32 nm and for the first time in the history of the caster, they integrate a graphics processor on the CPU die. For more information on the Sandy Bridge architecture, we recommend you read our article "Intel Core 2000: The test of Sandy Bridge published in January.
