22 nm just got a lot more budget friendly
If you're a budget computer shopper or OEM looking to build budget systems, take note -- Intel Corp. (
) is pushing its
out into the low end of the commodity CPU market.
The company yesterday announced eight new budget dual-core parts -- three new Celerons (ultra low end) and four new Pentiums (low end). The new chips do come with DDR3 support, power savings from the die-shrink, and an improved integrated GPU. However, unlike higher end parts they lack hyperthreading.
In the Celeron brand $42 USD will buy you a fetching G1610 (2.6 GHz, 55 W) or G1610T (2.3 GHz, 35 W), while $52 will get you a G1620 (2.7 GHz, 55 W).
If you're a big spender you can put down $64 USD for a Pentium and get a G2010 (2.8 GHz, 55 W), G2020 (2.9 GHz, 55 W), or G2020T (2.5 GHz, 35 W). Or you could really go wild and purchase an $86 USD Pentium G2130 (3.2 GHz, 55 W).
The Pentiums carry 3 MB of L3 cache, while the Celerons offer only 2 MB of L3.

Rounding out the lineup is the launch of the i3-3210 (3.2 GHz, 55 W), a dual-core part that comes with hyperthreading (for four threads, total). Like the Pentiums, it comes with 3 MB of L3 cache.
The G2130 and the i3-3210 support slightly faster DDR3-1600, while the other new parts support DDR3-1333.

Tegra 4 is selling for $20. It's good to see Intel slowly approaching that price tag.
"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet. A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
