[Anandtech.com] Intel Releases New Sandy Bridge Processors
Intel has announced a total of 16 new Sandy Bridge processors today, augmenting its lineup in the mid and low-end markets on the desktop and in the high and low-end markets on laptops.
On the desktop side, we have four new Core-series processors, one i5 (the 2320) along with three i3s (the 2130, 2125, and 2120T. Along with these comes three new Pentium processors (the G860, G630, and G630T) and four low-end Celerons (the G540, G530, G530T, and G440). The G440 has the dubious honor of being the only single-core Sandy Bridge of which I am aware.
New Sandy Bridge Desktop CPUs Name Cores/Threads CPU Clock L3 Cache GPU GPU Clock TDP Price i5-2320 4/4 3.0 GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) 6MB HD 2000 850 MHz (1100 MHz turbo) 95W $177 i3-2130 2/4 3.4 GHz 3MB HD 2000 850 MHz (1100 MHz turbo) 65W $138 i3-2125 2/4 3.3GHz 3MB HD 3000 850 MHz (1100 MHz turbo) 65W $134 i3-2120T 2/4 2.6GHz 3MB HD 2000 650 MHz (1100 MHz turbo) 35W $127 Pentium G860 2/2 3.0GHz 3MB HD 850 MHz (1100 MHz turbo) 65W $86 Pentium G630 2/2 2.7GHz 3MB HD 850 MHz (1100 MHz turbo) 65W $75 Pentium G630T 2/2 2.3GHz 3MB HD 650 MHz (1100 MHz turbo) 35W $70 Celeron G540 2/2 2.5GHz 2MB HD 850 MHz (1000 MHz turbo) 65W $52 Celeron G530 2/2 2.4GHz 2MB HD 850 MHz (1000 MHz turbo) 65W $42 Celeron G530T 2/2 2.0GHz 2MB HD 650 MHz (1100 MHz turbo) 35W $47 Celeron G440 1/1 1.6GHz 1MB HD 650 MHz (1000 MHz turbo) 35W $37 Most of these processors are simple clock bumps of existing processors and their energy-effecient T-series counterparts. What's new here is the Celeron series of processors, most of which sacrifice 100 MHz of GPU Turbo speed and another MB of L3 cache compared to their Pentium counterparts (according to CPU World's listings, VT-x and EM64T remain available on all models). It's also important to remember here that the HD-series graphics has nothing to do with Intel's last-gen IGP - in Sandy Bridge models, the HD graphics series is basically the HD 2000 series with QuickSync and a few other video features disabled - see our Sandy Bridge Pentium review for more information on this.
The new laptop CPUs are fewer in number, and aimed at both the high-end and very low-end of the market.
New Sandy Bridge Laptop CPUs Name Cores/Threads CPU Clock L3 Cache GPU Clock TDP Price i7-2960XM 4/8 2.7 GHz (3.7GHz Turbo) 8MB 650 MHz (1300 MHz turbo) 55W $1096 i7-2860QM 4/8 2.5 GHz (3.6 GHz Turbo) 8MB 650 MHz (1300 MHz turbo) 45W $568 i7-2760QM 4/8 2.4GHz (3.5 GHz Turbo) 6MB 650 MHz (1300 MHz turbo) 45W $378 i7-2640M 2/4 2.8GHz (3.5 GHz Turbo) 4MB 650 MHz (1300 MHz turbo) 35W $346 Celeron B840 2/2 1.9GHz 2MB 650 MHz (950 MHz turbo) 35W $86 The Core i7-2960XM is an Extreme Edition processor and is the fastest quad-core chip that Intel currently offers, and it has a pricetag to match. On the other end of the spectrum, the Celeron B840 is a dual-core processor that loses L3 cache and some GPU Turbo speed, though it retains VT-x and the same HD 3000-series GPU that all mobile Sandy Bridge CPUs possess.
