Intel releases new Ivy Bridge desktop CPUs
Jun 09, 2013
: One of the big events of this week was the launch of Intel Haswell
processors at Computex show in Taiwan. New CPUs offer considerably
improved graphics and lower idle power consumption than Ivy Bridge products, although they are not
compatible with existing socket 1155 motherboards. Fortunately, in
addition to Haswell CPUs, Intel also refreshed Celeron, Pentium and
Core i3 lineups for socket 1155. Newly released models are Core
i3-3245, i3-3250, i3-3250T, Pentium G2030, G2030T, G2120T, G2140, and
Upcoming Ivy Bridge processors surface in ASUS CPU support list
May 07, 2013
: In a month, Intel is going to launch Haswell microarchitecture,
that will offer better performance and lower power consumption than
current generation of Ivy Bridge CPUs. One of the drawbacks of new
architecture is incompatibility with existing socket 1155
motherboards. Fortunately, Intel still have plans to make LGA1155
processors, and a handful of them will be released in June. We
reported their specifications in February and March of this year.
Specifications of future Celeron G470 and Core i3 CPUs confirmed
Mar 29, 2013
: In February, new Celeron G470, Core i3-3245 and i3-3250 processors were
spotted on Intel's website. Although the website listed box and s-spec
numbers of unreleased CPUs, their clock speeds and other features
remained unknown. Based on model numbers, we assumed that the only
difference between new processors and existing products will be in
slightly increased clock speed.
Intel desktop and mobile CPU roadmap for 2014
Mar 25, 2013
: It is not uncommon to see details of unreleased CPU products leaked
by AMD's or Intel's partners. It is less common when CPU manufacturers
themselves leak model numbers or product specifications, and it is
especially rare when the manufacturers leak complete roadmaps or
launch schedules. And this is exactly what happened last week,
possibly last weekend, when Intel accidentally left open access to complete product launch
schedule for desktop, mobile, server and embedded markets.
Intel Core i3-3250 CPU is in the works
Feb 25, 2013
: Intel Core i3 line of Ivy Bridge processors was released in
September 2012, and so far it has been been expanded with the i3-3210
SKU, that has narrowed the gap between Core i3 and Pentium desktop
families. Another Core i3 model, which is likely to be the fastest
from all Core i3 processors, will be released later this year.
Information about this part appeared in Intel's Material Declaration
Data Sheets (MDDS) database over the weekend.
