Dual-core Ivy Bridge CPU details become available

The April launch of Intel’s new CPU architecture, dubbed Ivy Bridge, gets closer and closer and logically there’s more and more information about the platform. What’s known for sure is that the new CPUs will be built with 22 nm technology, will use the current Socket LGA 1155 and will again be split into three market segments with Core i7 being the highest, Core i5 being in the middle and Core i3 being in the budget category. In order to be distinguished from the older Sandy Bridge generation the new CPUs will start with the digit 3 in the product number.

After the recent disclosure of details about Ivy Bridge Core i7 and Core i5 Intel has disclosed details about the budget oriented Core i3 series. According to the company roadmap the Core i3 CPUs will be represented by three socket LGA 1155 processors built on 22 nm technology which are as follows:

  • Core i3-3240 – running at 3.40 GHz, two cores, 3 MB L3 cache, HT support, DDR3-1333/1600 memory support, built-in Intel HD 2500 graphics running at 650/1050 MHz, TDP 55 watts;
  • Core i3-3225 – running at 3.30 GHz, two cores, 3 MB L3 cache, HT support, DDR3-1333/1600 memory support, built-in Intel HD 4000 graphics running at 650/1050 MHz, TDP 55 watts;
  • Core i3-3220 – running at 3.30 GHz, two cores, 3 MB L3 cache, HT support, DDR3-1333/1600 memory support, built-in Intel HD 2500 graphics running at 650/1050 MHz, TDP 55 watts;

These CPUs do not support Turbo Boost or PCI-E 3.0 and do not work with technologies such as Intel vPro, VT-d, TXT or AES although they support VT-x.

There will also be two more models with TDP of 35 watts:

  • Core i3-3240T – running at 3.00 GHz, two cores, 3 MB L3 cache, HT support, DDR3-1333/1600 memory support, built-in Intel HD 2500 graphics running at 650/1050 MHz, TDP 35 watts;
  • Core i3-3220T – running at 2.80 GHz, two cores, 3 MB L3 cache, HT support, DDR3-1333/1600 memory support, built-in Intel HD 2500 graphics running at 650/1050 MHz, TDP 35 watts;

These processors are expected to hit the market sometime in Q3 2012 after the launch of the senior Ivy Bridge processors.
