More Sandy Bridge details revealed

WE have talked about a number of Sandy Bridge processors and Intel’s plans to aggressively shift to the new architecture in 2011.

However, we really didn’t have the full picture, as I did not have the full specs for much of Intel’s low-end Sandy Bridge lineup. The guys at have compiled a chart with all currently available info on the Sandy Bridge series and they have managed to score a bit more specs for the low end parts.

Intel will offer four Pentium branded dual-core Sandy parts, the G850, G840, G620 and G620T. The latter is the slowest of the lot, with a 2.2GHz clock, but it has a 35W TDP. The G620 is clocked at 2.6GHz, while the G840 and G850 run at 2.8GHz and 2.9GHz respectively and they all have a 65W TDP. As we said earlier, the Pentium series won’t support hyperthreading and they all pack 3MB of cache.

I already mentioned the Core i3 series, which will be comprised of three parts. The Core i3-2010T is the low voltage version, with a 2.5GHz clock and 35W TDP. The 2100 and 2120 run at 3.1GHz and 3.3GHz respectively and have a 65W TDP. Once again, the Core i3 series won’t support Turbo, but unlike the Pentiums, it has hyperthreading.

Both the Pentium and Core i3 series will pack HD2000 integrated graphics clocked at 850/1100MHz, except in low-voltage parts, where the clock will range from 650MHz to 1100MHz.
