Five desktop Core i3 Ivy Bridge in Q2

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Core i3 desktop lives on


We got curious about Intel’s decision to leave Core i3 out of mobile 3rd generation Core products, but this won’t affect the desktop version of Ivy Bridge Core i 3000 series.

They plan to launch three SKUs in the transactional market and two in low-power market. The top one is Core i3 3240 and it’s a 3.4GHz clocked dual-core with four threads and 3MB of cache. It supports DDR3 1600 and 1333 memory and it doesn’t offer any turbo clock.  The Core i3 3240 has Intel HD 2500 graphics with 650MHz core clock and 1050MHz maximal clock and it operates under 55W TDP.

The runner up is Core i3 3225 and it’s a 3.3GHz clocked dual core with four threads and 3MB of cache. It supports DDR3 1600 and 1333 memory and also doesn’t offer turbo overlocking. None of Core i3 3000 series do. The Core i3 3225 has faster version of Intel HD 4000 graphics with 650MHz core clock and 1050MHz maximal clock and it operates under 55W TDP. Intel HD 4000 graphics is usually a feature of Desktop Core i7 and top Core i5 CPUs.

The slowest of three is Core i3 3220 which has the same spec as Core i3 3225 with graphics core as the only difference. This one is 3.3GHz clocked dual core with four threads and Intel HD 2500 graphics with 650 /1050 MHz core clock.

There will also be two more Core i3 both 35W TDP the faster Core i3 3240T at 3GHz and Core i3 3220T that works at 2.8GHz.

They are scheduled to launch in Q3 2012 but we don’t have an exact date yet.
