Intel prepares to launch several Pentium processors based on its new Sandy Bridge architecture, including a low power model.
After unveiling the Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 based on the new Sandy Bridge architecture, the band Santa Clara, Intel will launch shortly Celeron and Pentium processors also based on the Sandy Bridge architecture.
Intel’s Sandy Bridge-based Celeron CPUs are expected to feature reduced functionality in this regard, hinting to the use of low clock speeds associated with a lower number of EUs.
As far as the rest of the specs are concerned, the first is clocked at 2.9 GHz with 3 MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 65 Watts. The second and third are working at 2.8 GHz and 2.6, include the same amount of third level cache and announcing the same TDP.
The fourth, there is a low power model clocked at 2.2 GHz which enjoys a TDP of 35 Watts.
All four will obviously place in the new socket LGA 1155.
The selling price of the processors is not yet decided. So its just time for some patience.
