Eight New Haswell-Based Entry Level Processors Revealed
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
Intel has deployed several new entry-level socket LGS1150 dual-core processors. Sure they’re hardly going to excite the enthusiast gaming market, but despite the fact most of us love the high-end, overclocking friendly Core i7 K-series processors, most consumers and business customers tend to purchase for a lot further down the range.
The six new processors are based on the Haswell micro-architecture, four of them carry the Pentium and Core i3 branding. These are made op of the Pentium G3250 which runs at 3.20 Ghz, with a 1.10 GHz iGPU, 3MB L3 and a TDP of 53W; The Pentium G3250T which runs at 2.8 GHz, with a 1.10 GHz iGPU, 3MB L3 and a TDP of just 35W; Pentium G3450T 2.90 GHz with 1.10 GHz iGPU, 3MB L3 and a TDP of 35W; finally the Pentium G2360 which runs at 3.5 GHz, 1.10 GHz iGPU, 3MB L3 and a 53W TDP.
Further up the range are the HyperThreading enabled Core i3 chips, which includes the Core i3-4160 which features a 3.60 GHz clock, 1.15GHz iGPU, 3MB L3, 54W TDP; Core i3-4160T with 3.10 GHz clock, 1.15GHz iGPU, 3MB L3, 35W TDP; Core i3-4360T with 3.20 GHz clock, 1.15 GHz iGPU, 4MB L3, 34W TDP; and finally the Core i3-4370 which features a 3.8 GHz clock, 1.15 GHz iGPU, 4MB L3 and a 53W TDP.
The last one, the Core i3-4370 is easily to most exciting of the last, as these specifications make it the fastest dual-core CPU on the market, and it’ll certainly be interesting to see how it performs given its affordable $149 price tag.
