Intel quitely launches Pentium G632
Earlier this week Intel introduced 16 Sandy Bridge microprocessors for desktop and mobile markets, including three desktop Pentium models. Browsing specifications of newly added Pentiums in Intel ark database (ark.intel.com), we discovered that there was fourth Pentium CPU, launched this month. Pentium G632, that has identical specifications to G630, was not included in official pricelist, and it seems to be an OEM-only SKU.
Like all other Pentiums, the Pentium G632 incorporates two CPU cores, 3 MB L3 cache, shared between the cores, and supports basic technologies, such as SSE4, Intel 64 and Virtualization. The CPU runs at 2.7 GHz, and integrates HD graphics, clocked at 850 MHz, and up to 1.1 GHz when turbo mode is invoked. The Intel G632 has standard 65 Watt Thermal Design Power. The last digit "2" in the processor number suggests that this could be the fourth upgradeable Sandy Bridge processor, released this year. Software-upgradeable processors can be upgraded to faster model via software update. Please see our previous story for more information on this special type of processors.
At this time, the Pentium G632 is not listed on Intel Upgrade Service site.
