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.
