The California-based Semiconductor Chip maker giant – Intel has launched several new Intel Core i3 and Pentium CPUs for desktops and mobile phones without much fanfare. The desktop processors are Pentium G3260, Pentium G3260T, Pentium G3460T, Pentium G3470, Core i3-4170, Core i3-4170T and Core i3-4370T. Whereas, the mobile processors are titled Pentium 3825U, Core i3-5015U and Core i3-5020U.
All the mobile processors are built on the company’s 14nm Broadwell architecture and feature 15W TDP (Thermal Design Power) ratings. All the mobile CPUs also feature Hyper-Threading technology permitting each processor core to execute two threads at the same time.
The Pentium 3825U processor is clocked at 1.9GHz and features 2MB of L2 cache and integrated Intel HD Graphics. Whereas, the Core i3-5015U and Core i3-5020U processor are clocked at 2.1GHz and 2.2Ghz individually, with 3MB of L2 cache and integrated Intel HD 5500 graphics each.
|Pentium 3825U||2 / 4||1.9 GHz||2 MB||HD (Broadwell)||DDR3L-1600||15W||$161|
|Core i3-5015U||2 / 4||2.1 GHz||3 MB||HD 5500||DDR3L-1600||15W||$275|
|Core i3-5020U||2 / 4||2.2 GHz||3 MB||HD 5500||DDR3L-1600||15W||$281|
Coming to desktop CPUs, all the seven new processors have diverse specifications significantly. While, the four Pentium-branded processor feature two cores, Intel HD Graphics and 3MB of L2 Cache. Whereas, the rest of the three Core i3 processors features two cores with Hyper-threading technology.
The Intel Pentium G3260 is clocked at 3.3GHz and has a 53W TDP rating. The Pentium G3260T is clocked at 2.9GHz and features a 35W TDP rating. Whereas, the Pentium G3460T is clocked at 3GHz with a 35W TDP rating, the Pentium G3470 is clocked at 3.6GHz and has a 53W TDP rating.
As for the three fresh Core i3 processors, the Core i3-4170 and Core i3-4170T are clocked at 3.7GHz and 3.2GHz respectively. The two processors are armed with 3MB of L2 cache and HD 4400 GPUs, apart from featuring 54W and 35W TDP ratings respectively. On the other hand, the Core i3-4370T is clocked at 3.3GHz and features an HD 4600 GPU along with a 35W TDP rating.
|Pentium G3260||2 / 2||3.3 GHz||3 MB||HD||DDR3-1333||53W||$64|
|Pentium G3260T||2 / 2||2.9 GHz||3 MB||HD||DDR3-1333||35W||$64|
|Pentium G3460T||2 / 2||3 GHz||3 MB||HD||DDR3-1600||35W||$75|
|Pentium G3470||2 / 2||3.6 GHz||3 MB||HD||DDR3-1600||53W||$86|
|Core i3-4170||2 / 4||3.7 GHz||3 MB||HD 4400||DDR3-16000||54W||$117|
|Core i3-4170T||2 / 4||3.2 GHz||3 MB||HD 4400||DDR3-1600||35W||$117|
|Core i3-4370T||2 / 4||3.3 GHz||4 MB||HD 4600||DDR3-1600||35W||$138|
All the processors are built to work with DDR3 RAM, with the extremely supported speed fluctuating between 1333MHz and 1600MHz.
