Intel has begun shipping seven new processors designed for low-cost desktop PCs, according to CPU World.These included: Celeron G1610, G1610T and G1620, and Pentium G2010, G2020, G2020T and G2130.Some of them have replaced the existing chips.
All new processors are based on the architecture of the latest generation of Ivy Bridge and produced the 22-nm technology.New G1610, G1610T G1620 and Celeron processors are the first on the architecture of Ivy Bridge, said CPU World.
All of the above processors are the 2-core, they do not support Hyper-Threading (can handle two threads on each core) and Turbo Boost (automatically increases the clock speed with complex tasks).These technologies are a feature of the more expensive Core i3, i5, and i5.
Theoretically the maximum heat dissipation (TDP) – a figure that Intel uses to describe power consumption – the new chips are 35 or 55 watts, depending on the model.All new processors are designed for slot Socket 1155.
Cost of processors ranges from $ 42 to $ 86, depending on the model, each in the party of the thousands of units.

|Pentium G2020||2||2.9 GHz||3 MB||55W||$ 64|
|Pentium G2020T||2||2.5 GHz||3 MB||35W||$ 64|
|Pentium G2130||2||3.2 GHz||3 MB||55 W||$ 86|
Recall that before the end of 2013, Intel plans to release processors on the architecture of the next generation Haswell (on the existing 22-nm technology standards).First announcement of new generation is expected in early June.
