Pentium G2020 is dual-core budget microprocessor, based on Ivy Bridge 22nm microarchitecture. Details of this model were revealed by Fudzilla in October 2012, and the Pentium was released in January 2013. At the launch time, the official price of the G2020 was $64, that is the same as the price of slightly slower G2010 model. Both CPUs are positioned against triple-core A6-Series and quad-core Athlon II processors from AMD.

Similar to other microprocessors, based on Ivy Bridge architecture, Pentium G2020 has 2 CPU cores with dedicated L1 and L2 caches, and shared 3MB last level cache. The chip also incorporates dual-channel memory controller, and HD capable graphics unit. The CPU operates at 2.9 GHz, and supports Intel 64, Virtualization and Execute disable bit technologies. Intel 64 technology, also called EM64T, is needed to run 64-bit operating systems. Execute disable bit can protect from certain kinds of viruses. Virtualization feature improves performance when running virtualized OSes and programs. Being a budget processor, the G2020 doesn't support more advanced features, like Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost. With just 2 cores and not very high clock rate, the G2020 is not well suited for CPU intensive applications, but it can run many day-to-day office-type programs and applications without problems.

Integrated graphics unit on this Pentium runs at 650 MHz, and its frequency can be temporarily boosted to 1050 MHz. This is sufficient for any type of 2D graphics, and for simple 3D games. However, the GPU does not have additional execution units for 3D acceleration to power the latest games, or run general purpose GPU (GPGPU) tasks. The GPU doesn't support high-end features, such as Quick Sync Video, Clear Video HD technology or InTru 3D.

Intel G2020 fits into 55 Watt thermal envelope, which is standard for all mainstream Pentium Ivy Bridge CPUs. The chip is produced in an LGA package, compatible with socket 1155 motherboards. The Pentium can be upgraded to faster Core i3, i5 or i7 processor, if desired.

Intel launches budget desktop CPUs
Jan 20, 2013: Intel Ivy Bridge microarchitecture was available for almost 9 months now, but so far only Core branded families have been transitioned to the new microarchitecture. Up to now, all desktop Celerons were based on older Sandy Bridge architecture, and desktop Pentium lineup had a mix of Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge CPUs. Today Intel added seven new SKUs to Celeron and Pentium families. Celeron family was updated with G1610, G1610T and G1620, that succeeded G400 and G500 series parts.

New Mobile Celeron processors to launch in Q1 2013
Dec 02, 2012: Next microarchitecture from Intel, codenamed Haswell, will be launched in the second quarter 2013, but before then the company will refresh existing desktop and mobile lineups, releasing more than a dozen of new models. We previously reported on new Celeron and Pentium desktop CPUs, as well as mobile Core i5 and i7 processors, coming next quarter. According to Digitimes, Intel will also launch a few mobile Celeron microprocessors from 1000-series.

Future Celeron and Pentium CPUs surface on Biostar's website
Nov 23, 2012: We previously reported that Intel plans to complete transition to Ivy Bridge microarchitecture in Q1 2013 by releasing new Celeron and Pentium desktop microprocessors. Overall, the company will launch 7 SKUs, including G1610T and G2020T low-power models. Characteristics of these products are already known, and some of them were even spotted in specifications of Dell desktop PCs. Now the CPUs has surfaced in CPU support lists on the Biostar website.

Bits and pieces: upcoming budget CPUs spotted, Pentium G2010 planned
Oct 30, 2012: One month ago we reported on unreleased Core i3-3210 microprocessor, spotted on Intel's website. Although the webiste provided such details, as S-Spec and box part numbers, remaining features of new model were unknown. Based on the processor number, we assumed that the i3-3210 may operate at slightly lower frequency than Core i3-3220, which is the slowest Ivy Bridge Core i3 currently in production. Recently we confirmed slower clock speed of the Core i3-3210.

New Ivy Bridge Pentiums to launch in Q1 2013
Oct 11, 2012: Last month Intel released first Pentium processors with Ivy Bridge core, including G2120 mainstream part with 55 Watt TDP, and ultra low-power G2100T. As a result, current "Legacy" segment of the mainstream desktop market, targeted by Pentium line, contains G2120, and two Sandy Bridge CPUs, G870 and G645. According to Fudzilla, Intel will launch two more Ivy Bridge Pentiums in the first quarter 2013, completely phasing out Sandy Bridge parts.
