Intel releases Ivy Bridge chips for Gladden platform

Just a few weeks after refreshing the high-end LGA2011 CPU product line, Intel has released new processors for its Gladden platform – in case you have not heard Gladden is a platform oriented towards communication equipment.

The Ivy Bridge Gladden processors are ordinary Ivy Bridge processors but without integrated GPUs. All chips belonging to this line support Hyper-Threading, SSE4, AES and virtualization as well as an integrated dual-channeled memory controller, DMI 2.0 and PCI-E 3.0 and arrive in BGA packaging. In addition the Core i3 and Xeon E3 processors support VT-d and Trusted Execution technologies.

Let’s take a look at the chips themselves – the Xeon E3-1105C v2 (USD 320) and the Xeon E3-1125C v2 (USD 448) run at 1.8 GHz and 2.5 GHz respectively and feature 25W and 40W of TDP. Both chips come with four computational cores, 8 MB L3 cache and an integrated DDR3-1600 memory controller. The dual-core Pentium B925C and Core i3-3115C feature 4 MB of L3 cache and a DDR3-1333 controller; they run at 2.0 GHz and 2.5 GHz respectively and feature TDP of 15W and 25W. The Core i3 chip sells for USD 241, while Pentium’s price is still unknown.
