Intel discontinues Core i5 and i7 Sandy Bridge CPUs
Aug 14, 2012
: Intel plans to discontinue several Sandy Bridge core i7
microprocessors, including quad-cores for mainstream notebooks, and
a few dual-core CPUs for thin-and-light mobile devices. Affected part
and S-spec numbers, as well as end-of-life dates, were published in a
Product Change Notification, that was released today.
Three new Core i5 CPUs added to Intel pricelist
Jan 29, 2012
: We previously reported on several new Core i5 desktop microprocessors,
expected in the second week of February. Core i5-2380P, i5-2450P and
unlocked i5-2550K Sandy Bridge CPUs will come with slightly increased
core frequency, and with disabled on-chip GPU. A week earlier than
anticipated Intel added all three SKUs to official price list. The
company also added prices for 4 single- and dual-core Mobile Celeron
models, that were launched earlier this month.
Gigabyte adds GPU-less Core i5s to CPU support lists
Jan 26, 2012
: As was originally reported by VR-Zone, three new Core i5
microprocessors are coming in February. In addition to i5
standard features, such as 4 CPU cores with Turbo Boost technology, 6
MB L3 cache and no Hyper-Threading, all three models will also have
one thing in common: they will lack on-chip graphics unit. Last week
Gigabyte added new SKUs to socket 1155 CPU support lists, confirming
previously reported specifications.
Upcoming GPU-less Core i5 CPUs are available for pre-order
Jan 19, 2012
: As you may already know, in February Intel plans to introduce Core i5-2380P,
i5-2450P and i5-2550K microprocessors.
All three are quad-core chips, incorporating 6 MB L3 cache and most of
the Sandy Bridge features with the exception of Vpro. In addition to
100 Mhz higher core and Turbo Boost frequencies than currently
produced Core i5-2320, i5-2400 and i5-2500K SKUs, new CPUs will have
on-chip graphics disabled. Specifications of upcoming processors were
originally revealed by VR-Zone, although launch prices of these Core
i5s are not yet known. All three models can be now pre-ordered in two
US online stores, MacMall and eCost.
Launch dates of Intel processors in Q1
Jan 13, 2012
: VR-Zone and Fudzilla recently revealed launch dates of several
desktop Intel processors, as well as introduction date of
"Romley" platform and Sandy Bridge-EP server chips.
New Sandy Bridge i5 Processors To Have No iGPU
Dec 30, 2011
: There has been much speculation recently about the upcoming Core i5-2550K, and it's specs and price. One of Sandy Bridge's selling points has been the integrated GPU, but it appears this will no longer be the case for the whole range. VR-Zone have now revealed preliminary details of three new i5 processors, including Core i5-2550K, which will not have an active iGPU.
Intel Core i5-2550K is in the works
Dec 10, 2011
: The latest Intel desktop roadmap, leaked two weeks ago,
stated that current Core i5 Sandy Bridge processors will be
replaced with Ivy Bridge models in the second quarter 2012, and there
are no Sandy Bridge Core i5s planned. It comes as a surprise that
the company indeed has one new SB model in the works, Core i5-2550K
with unlocked clock multiplier. S-spec and box part numbers of this
processor were revealed in today's update of Material Declaration Data
