With absolutely no fanfare, Intel has released seven new Sandy Bridge processors of which two lack a graphics core. Three quad-core Core i5 arrived, the Core i5-2550K is a normal chip running at 3.4GHz, while the i5-2380P and i5-2450P lack GPU cores; all are rated at a 95W TDP however so don’t expect power savings from those two chips. On the low powered end the dual core Celeron B720 and single core B815 will both sport TDPs of 35W and for mobile users the Celeron 797 and 867 will both have a TDP of 17W. The Inquirer picked up this information from Intel’s newly release price list; one which does not feature a single drop in the price of a CPU.
"CHIPMAKER Intel has quietly released seven Sandy Bridge processors, with two of the chips not having built-in graphics cores.
Intel’s Sandy Bridge range is already packed but that didn’t stop Chipzilla from releasing seven chips, three of which are branded as Core i5 and two featuring a new ‘P’ suffix. According to our man at Intel the suffix denotes chips that do not come with Intel’s integrated graphics core."
