Existing Pentium, Celeron lines replaced with new processors

Over the weekend, Intel added seven CPUs to its budget line of Ivy Bridge-based processors. Seven new models have been added to the Pentium and Celeron lines. The Celeron family has added the G1610, G1610T, and G1620. The Pentium line sees the G2010, G2020, and G2020T. Also supplementing the lower end of the Intel range is the new Core i3-3210. All processors work in existing socket 1155 motherboards.

The Celeron processors added are all dual-core, with 2MB of L3 cache and integrated Intel HD graphics. The G1610 is a 2.6GHz processor available for $42 in quantity, and the G1620 is clocked at 2.7GHz and sells for $52. The low-power G1610T has a 35W TDP and runs at 2.3GHz. The G1610T is also available for $42.

Four new Pentium processors have been released as well. All four are dual-core, have 3MB of L3 cache and provide integrated Intel HD graphics. The G2010 runs at 2.8GHz, the G2020 is a 2.9GHz processor, and the upper-end of the line is provided by the 3.2GHz G2130. The Pentium G2020T fills the same place in the line as the G1610T, running at a lower clock speed and also a lower TDP. The G2020T is a 2.5GHz chip with a 35W TDP. The G2010, G2020, and G2020T all cost $64, while the G2130 sells for $86.

Added to the i3 series, the i3-3210 adds AVX instructions and hyper-threading. The i3-3210 is a dual-core, four-thread processor running at 3.2GHz, with 3MB of L3 cache. Integrated graphics are raised to the Intel HD 2500, versus the Intel HD in the Pentium and Celeron lines. The Core i3-3210 is available now for $117.
