Report: Intel Developing Four New Pentium CPUs For Q2'13

Intel will be launching four socket Pentium processors based on the 22 nm Ivy Bridge architecture in Q2 of this year. All four Pentiums are dual-core socket LGA1155 chips with integrated video cards with a clock rate of 650 MHz that can be further boosted to 1,050 MHz in "Turbo" mode.

The specifications for the four CPUs are listed below. It is worth noting that none of the processors have support for HyperThreading, and two are "T" variants with a reduced TDP.

Intel has not yet provided any pricing information, but based on the Pentium branding and their overall specifications, we can safely assume that all four CPUs are aimed at the entry-level market.

    Yawn.
    Dividing the low end market even more...

    I miss the days when you would choose a CPU by it's frequency number:

    Pentium III 600 was definitely slower than Pentium III 800

    Now ? The numbers are meaningless.

    "Integrated video cards?"

    Seriously?

    This would of been real exciting in 1999

    They should really quit the pentium for their newer architectures.
    Crappy old stuff does not even support execute disable bit, a very useful safety feature even for the entrance level.
