Intel launches Core i3 Ivy Bridge processors

After saturating the CPU market with higher end Core i7 and Core i5 processors based on the latest 22 nm Ivy Bridge architecture, Intel has finally released budget-oriented Core i3 processors based on the same technology.

The new Ivy Bridge Core i3 CPUs come in several versions – regular (S-series) and low-power (T-series) and offer clock speeds that range between 2.8 GHz and 3.4 GHz. As before the latest Core i3 processors lack certain features found in more expensive models such as Hyper-Threading and are limited to two cores only but come with updated Intel HD 2500 graphics and 3 MB of L3 cache as well as other nice Intel technologies.
