Intel prepares Core i5-2310 CPU
Two weeks ago we reported about new Core i5-2310 processor model, that was spotted in CPU support list on Biostar website. Based on published information, the microprocessor looked like a little faster version of Core i5-2300, that was launched in January. Today Intel added i5-2310 box and S-spec numbers to Material Declaration Data Sheets (MDDS) database on its website, thus confirming forthcoming release of this model:
Known features of the Intel Core i5-2310 SKU are 2.9 GHz core frequency, 95 Watt Thermal Design Power, and compatibility with socket 1155 (H2) motherboards. It's likely that other CPU features will be similar to Core i5-2300, i.e. 4 CPU cores with HyperThreading disabled, 6 MB L3 cache, TurboBoost technology, and support for SSE4, AES and AVX instructions. Intel MDDS database provides BX80623I52310 and BXC80623I52310 box part numbers for this part. Processor's S-spec is SR02K, which corresponds to CM8062301043718 OEM part number.
