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.
|Clock Frequency||3.0 GHz||2.6 GHz||2.7 GHz||3.3 GHz|
|L1 / L3 Cache||1 MB / 3 MB||1 MB / 3 MB||1 MB / 3 MB||1 MB / 3 MB|
|GPU Frequency||650 MHz / 1,050 MHz||650 MHz / 1,050 MHz||650 MHz / 1,050 MHz||650 MHz / 1,050 MHz|
|TDP||55 watts||35 watts||35 watts||55 watts|
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.
