By - Source: Intel | B 32 comments

Intel has updated its processor portfolio in September and has added 10 new Ivy Bridge and 10 new Sandy Bridge desktop and mobile processors.

Only three processors saw price reductions, indicating the current dominance of Intel in the CPU market.

According to the new price list, the new Ivy Bridge desktop models include

- i5-3350P (3.10 GHz, $177)
- i5-3300 (3.00 GHz, $182)
- i5-3335S (2.70 GHz, low power, $194)
- i5-3330S (2.70 GHz, low power, $177)
- i3-3240 (3.40 GHz, $138)
- i3-3225 (3.30 GHz, $134)
- i3-3220 (3.30 GHz, $117)
- i3-3240T (2.90 GHz, low power, $138)
- i3-3220T (2.80 GHz, low power, $117)

There are a few new Sandy Bridge models on the low end of the portfolio:

- Pentium G120 (3.10 GHz, $86)
- Pentium G645 (2.90 GHz, $64)
- Pentium G550 (2.70 GHz, $52)
- Pentium G2100T (2.60 GHz, $75)
- Pentium G645T (2.50 GHz, $64)
- Pentium G550T (2.20 GHz, $42)

For notebooks, Intel is offering the following new Ivy Bridge processors:

- i7-3940XM (3.00 GHz, $1,096)
- i7-3840QM (2.80 GHz, $568)
- i7-3740QM (2.70 GHz, $378)

The new Sandy Bridge CPUs are:

- Celeron B840 (1.90 GHz, $86)
- Celeron 887 (1.50 GHz, $86)

The only price reductions were the i3-2130, which drops 15 percent to $117, as well as the Pentium G870 and G550, which drop by 13 and 9 percent to $75 and $42, respectively.

    "Only three processors saw price reductions, indicating the current dominance of Intel in the CPU market."

    This is why we should all be hoping AMD has some success with piledriver. That is, unless you like paying more money just so you can feel smug about yourself.

    Sigh even though I have an i5-2500k my next system is going to be an AMD one, CPU prices need to have competition. I hate monopolies and this doesnt bode well.

    Intel's mobile CPU prices are priced as if they were gold.

    and that is the only place AMD can even come close to competing.

    Well now I know why there are $2000 laptops.
    On ther other hand, I checked to specs for the Ivy Bridge i3's and the 3225 is $134 with HD Graphics 4000 while the 3240 is at $138 with HD graphics 2500.
    What did I just lost here?? .1 Ghz worth more than HD graphics 4000 WTF

    Looks like only the i3 3225 ivy will get the hd4000 graphics, i guess that is notworthy

    So many variants. One supports virtualization, another trades that for overclocking, yet another trades that for low power consumption, and maybe another doesn't have integrated graphics. Intel's products are so ridiculously confusing especially when you get into all the variable stepping codes that their CPUs have. It's past time for them to stop creating all this segmentation. It's causing people like myself who just want to use these things all sorts of grief when it comes to motherboard, bios, and chip compatibility issues. I've built two Intel systems this year and had problems with the CPUs being incompatible due to motherboard and bios revisions. Enough is enough. I'm going back to AMD next time.

    But really 90% of the people here just inevitably buy the "k" processors because they think they might want to OC. So even though it may seem like there's a lot of variety, really there isn't (see diablo3 skills).

    Most people here would purchase K CPUs for themselves, but I sell a lot more i3s to customers than I do i5s and i7s. For 90% of the market the i3 is the way to go, even for entry to mid-level game rigs they work very well.

    Dang... I don't know who released that info, but it's full of errors. Please fix.

    And according to CPU-world, the i3-3240T and i3-3220T are indeed 22nm Ivy Bridge parts as you suspected.

    Still no Pentium Ivy bridge base.

    What the hell are these marketing idiots doing with the numbering convention of the processors.

    Someone bring back the god damn 486 SX / DX 80Mhz days where I knew what the hell I was buying without googling the god damn world wide web to figure out what I'm looking at. Rant rant rant

    That's the OEM mobo maker's fault that they can't keep their bios's up to date....and you can believe me when I say they get sample CPUs way way before they're publicly released.

    the 1000 dollar laptop chips can be overclocked. technically, its a regular i7 3770k that has been binned for cooler operation and to be run at a lower tdp and voltage

    Yep, big sad face. Prepare to pay current LGA2011 prices for a LGA1155 CPUs this time next year. And if that is the case then I will buy the AMD CPU that is not as powerful, but save $400 :)
