New Intel Core i3 and Pentium CPUs to launch in September
By Gennadiy ShvetsTuesday July 17, 2012 03:38
Intel Ivy Bridge (IVB) desktop microprocessors were launched in April of this year, and so far only Core i5 and i7 families were transitioned to the new architecture. According to the launch schedule, that we posted back in March, Ivy-Bridge based Core i3 CPUs should be available in the third quarter. We now have more details on the schedule. Based on information, that we have on hand, Core i3-32xx products will be released in the second week of September (the week that starts on September 2nd). Along with Core i3s, Intel will introduce Pentium G2100T and G2120 SKUs, also based on the Ivy Bridge core.
Third generation Core i3 microprocessors has the same basic features as their Sandy Bridge counterparts: two CPU cores with Hyper-Threading, 3 MB L3 cache, tier 1 graphics on most parts, and support for dual-channel DDR3 memory. The chips lack many advanced features, such as Turbo Boost, Trusted Execution technology and VT-d virtualization. Overall, there will be 5 new models: Core i3-3220, i3-3220T, i3-3225, i3-3240 and i3-3240T. Core i3-3220T and i3-3240T low-power chips run at 2.8 and 3 GHz, and they feature 35 Watt TDP. Remaining processors come with 55 Watt TDP. Core i3-3220 and i3-3225 operate at 3.3 GHz, however the 3225 boasts better HD 4000 graphics. Core i3-3240 works at 3.4 GHz.
We don't have specifications of G2100T and G2120 processors, although we found some details in Biostar TP75 CPU support list:

According to the list, the G2100T runs at 2.6 GHz, and has 35 Watt TDP. The G2120 has 3.1 GHz core frequency and 55 Watt thermal envelope. In March we published details on embedded version of G2120, and we believe that there won't be many differences between desktop and embedded versions. Based on preliminary information, it seems that upcoming Pentium products will be very similar to previous generation of Pentiums. They will have 2 CPU cores, 3 MB L3 cache and HD graphics. They will not support any advanced features, including Hyper-Threading technology. Also, the frequencies of the first IVB Pentiums will be identical to recently launched Pentium G870 and G860T Sandy Bridge CPUs. However, we can still expect slightly better performance from G21xx processors due to improvements in the micro-architecture and in the graphics unit.
The table below contains known details about new Core i3 and Pentium microprocessors:

I'd still like to know what happened to the i5-3475S and whether it will ever be available for purchase by anyone not named Hewlett-Packard.

Wish they would find a spot for a "K" i3.

Why would you want to bother overclocking a twin core i3 for which they'd probably charge at least $130 when for $150 you can buy a quad core i5-3450 that would be much much faster (and cooler).

Because I love to overclock. And it would be a sweet little chip that would probably be very easy to cool.

There probably would've been one had Bulldozer not been such a major fail. As it is, Intel has no need to compete and they certainly aren't going to cannibalize sales of more expensive i5-3570K chips by releasing a "K" version of the i3. However, with low prices on quad-cores and with more apps being optimized for more than 2 cores, it's a good time to move to an actual quad-core instead of just dual-core with HT.

I understand but still it would be a fun chip to play with. I agree there is not really a price point for it as it would kill sells of other chips. I run a quad in my desktop and have for some time. Still an i3 3220 at 5ghz would be a pretty powerful little beast.

90% of HTPC users don't even need the horse power of the core i3, most wouldn't even notice a difference. Mostly they will just want the HD4000 graphics.

Doesn't a highly clocked dual core outperform a quad core in a lot of applications still, gaming comes to mind.

True. Last year I sold my i7-980x + ASUS 1366 MB on ebay and swapped out for an i7-2600k + Intel 1155 MB (and put money in my pocket). Reasoning: I'd rather have a 4-core CPU that has an almost 10k passmark vs. a 6-core CPU with a slightly better passmark. Of course it was just silly of me to buy the 980x in the first place, but it was fun to play with, and neat to see 12 little boxes in taskmgr. There isn't a lot of software to take advantage of the extra cores. All my laptops and HTPCs I continue to buy i3 or even SNB Pentiums because you just don't need the performance in those situations.

48 cores and only 64GB of memory? What would you be running that needs that kind of horsepower with so little memory?

Sure, but its not like you can't overclock the quads equally high with good cooling. 4.5Ghz is even possible on a stock cooler (if you accept the extra noise that adds), and easily up to 5 with a proper aftermarket cooler.

Anyway, the i3 is no enthusiast CPU, its the low-end to mid-range segment, a "K" version just doesn't make sense there.

This is one of the OLAP DB servers. There's a few like this. The whole database fits in RAM but its insanely busy. DB lives on a container of enterprise flash drives that deliver insane IOPS. After SSD, query times dropped to unbelievably small amounts. Life is easy when you can throw hardware at the problem instead of proper database architecture. Servers like this are so cheap now.

The ESXi clusters are where the stupid amounts of RAM per host can be found. I can run 1TB+ per host, but made the decision to limit it to 256GB per host. The impact of one host failing that can carry 1TB worth of VM's is comical.

"What happened?!?!""
An ESXi host failed. No biggie. Everything will be back up in a minute.
"How many VM's went down?!"
.........um.......a couple hundred.....

I'd rather hear "a few dozen".
