On Monday we reported on upcoming Core i3-3250 microprocessor, that has surfaced on Intel's website. At present, we know only its microarchitecture, package type and box part number, and the rest of the specifications we deduced based on the model. Launch date of this CPU is not known, however we presume that this will happen before introduction of Core i3 processors with "Haswell" core. The i3-3250 will not be the only Core i3 desktop CPU, coming in the next quarter or two. Yesterday we spotted two unreleased microprocessors in Intel's MDDS database, Core i3-3245 and Celeron G470.
Core i3-3245 is based on Ivy Bridge architecture, and it packs two CPU cores and GT2 graphics on a die. The processor has BX80637I33245 box part number. Judging by model number, this microprocessor should have HD 4000 graphics, and remaining specifications should be similar to Core i3-3240. That is, the part will have two cores with Hyper-Threading technology, 3 MB L3 cache, 3.4 GHz clock speed, and 55 Watt TDP. Apparently, this SKU is going to replace Core i3-3225, that also has HD 4000 graphics.
Celeron G470 is somewhat interesting, as this SKU is based on almost obsolete Sandy Bridge microarchitecture. Furthermore, the G470 belongs to budget G400 series, which means that it should have one CPU core, Hyper-Threading, 1.5 MB L3 cache and 35 Watt TDP. This SKU is likely to succeed Celeron G465. We expect that the G470 will be clocked at 2 GHz, or a bit higher than the G465. Boxed version of this microprocessor will have BX80623G470 part number.
Both G470 and i3-3245 are compatible with socket 1155. The table below contains a summary of CPUs' features:
|Celeron G465||1||2||1.9 GHz||1.5 MB||HD||35 Watt|
|Celeron G470||1||2||2 GHz||1.5 MB||HD||35 Watt|
|Core i3-3240||2||4||3.4 GHz||3 MB||HD 2500||55 Watt|
|Core i3-3245||2||4||3.4 GHz||3 MB||HD 4000||55 Watt|
