In February, new Celeron G470, Core i3-3245 and i3-3250 processors were spotted on Intel's website. Although the website listed box and s-spec numbers of unreleased CPUs, their clock speeds and other features remained unknown. Based on model numbers, we assumed that the only difference between new processors and existing products will be in slightly increased clock speed. This week we found full specifications of Celeron and Core i3 CPUs, and were able to confirm our assumptions.
According to recently leaked launch update, Celeron G470, Core i3-3245 and i3-3250 will be released on June 9 together with previously unheard of Core i3-3250T. The processors have 100 MHz higher operating frequency than Celeron G465, Core i3-3225, i3-3240, and i3-3240T, while having exactly the same other features.
Core i3-3245, i3-3250 and i3-3250T "Ivy Bridge" CPUs are clocked at 3.4GHz, 3.5GHz and 3GHz. The processors have 2 cores, 3 MB L3 cache, and integrated graphics with 650 MHz base and 1050 MHz maximum frequencies. The chips support Hyper-Threading technology, and work with DDR3-1600 memory. Core i3-3250 and 3250T come with HD 2500 GPU, which is upgraded to HD 4000 on the i3-3245. The "T" part is rated at 35 Watt TDP, and two other Core i3s have standard 55 Watt TDP.
Celeron G470 is a 2 GHz "Sandy Bridge" CPU with 1 core, Hyper-Threading and 1.5 MB L3 cache. It integrates HD graphics, clocked at 650 MHz, and up to 1 GHz. The processors supports DDR3-1066 memory, and fits 35 Watt thermal envelope.
All processors require socket 1155. Below is a summary of their specifications:
|Celeron G470||1 / 2||2 GHz||1.5 MB||HD (Sandy Bridge)||650 / 1000 MHz||35 Watt|
|Core i3-3245||2 / 4||3.4 GHz||3 MB||HD 4000||650 / 1050 MHz||55 Watt|
|Core i3-3250||2 / 4||3.5 GHz||3 MB||HD 2500||650 / 1050 MHz||55 Watt|
|Core i3-3250T||2 / 4||3 GHz||3 MB||HD 2500||650 / 1050 MHz||35 Watt|
