Intel Makes a Surprise Launch of Ivy Bridge Processors

The release of the 4th generation Intel Haswell processors made a real stir last week. This turmoil left the launch of several Intel Ivy Bridge processors practically unnoticed. How strange as it might seem, but Intel keeps on supplying its 3rd generation products to comply with the needs of the vast majority of customers. Hence, a set of new CPUs consists of: five Intel Pentium models (G2140, G2120T, G2030T, G2030), three Intel Core models (i3-3245, i3-3250, i3-3250T), and a single Intel Celeron G470 model.

Each Intel Pentium processor features two cores and 3 MB of cache-memory. The nominal clock frequencies fluctuate within the measures of 2.6-3.3 GHz, depending on the model. All the models within the line are equipped with Intel HD graphics core. Intel Pentium G2030T and G2030 support two-channel DDR3 modules with up to 1333 MHz frequency, while their companions – Intel Pentium G2140 and G2120T – support DDR3-1600 MHz modules.

Each Intel Core processor comes with …
