Intel plans three new Sandy Bridge Pentiums

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Q3 to Q4 2011 launch
Intel won't just update Core i3 processor line, something that we have mentioned here, it also plans to launch new line of slightly faster Pentium series.

The fastest one for the first time crosses the 3GHz milestone and it will launch as Pentium G860. It’s a dual core with two threads, 3MB cache and Intel HD graphics clocked at 850/1100 MHz. It has a TDP of 65W and of course it’s a 32nm part. It is set to replace 2.9GHz clocked Pentium G850 and this should happen in Q3 2011.

Pentium G850 will sit on top of G840, the part clocked at 2.8GHz and this will happen in Q4 2011, while the G620, the part clocked at 2.6GHz will get replaced with 2.7GHz clocked Pentium 630. Pentium 600 parts lack support for DDR3 1333 and can only cope with DDR3 1066, while the rest of the spec is shared with the Pentium G800 series including 3MB cache, two cores and two threads, Intel HD graphics at 850 MHz / 1100MHz memory, and 65W TDP.

All these new and old parts will use the LGA1155 socket.
