    The business end of Intel's 4th generation Core desktop processor family, Core i3 and Pentium Dual-Core, are dressing up for work. Intel reportedly gave final touches to retail pricing of at least three new Core i3 parts, a mid-range Core i5 part, a high-end Core i7 part, and three Pentium ones. Intel's Core i3 "Haswell" desktop processor lineup begins with the Core i3-4130 dual-core processor, featuring 3.40 GHz clock speed, no Turbo Boost, HyperThreading, and 3 MB of shared L3 cache, priced at US $136.85. It is followed by the Core i3-4330, which ups clock speed to 3.50 GHz, shared L3 cache to 4 MB; and a $154.75 price-tag. The Core i3 "Haswell" family is led by the Core i3-4340, with its 3.60 GHz clock speed, and 4 MB of L3 cache.

    Intel also plans a mid-range quad-core Core i5 part, the i5-4440, which features 3.10 GHz clocks, 3.40 GHz Turbo Boost, no HyperThreading, and 6 MB of shared L3 cache. It is priced at $197.26. Intel also rectified its high-end Core i7 lineup with the new Core i7-4771, which features 3.50 GHz clocks, 3.90 GHz Turbo Boost, HyperThreading, and 8 MB of shared L3 cache. This part, as reported earlier, is designed to displace the Core i7-4770 (non-K), and is priced at $333.77 a piece.

    Intel's entry-level Pentium dual-core lineup includes three new parts built on the 22 nm silicon fab process, beginning with the Pentium G3220, which features two cores clocked at 3.00 GHz, no Turbo Boost, no HyperThreading, and 3 MB of shared L3 cache; it commands a $70.61 price-tag. Next up, is the Pentium G3420, with its 3.20 GHz clock speed, and $90.18 price-tag. The series is lead by Pentium G3430, with its 3.30 GHz clocks, and $100.26 price-tag. It's interesting to see Intel give most Core i3 dual-core parts 4 MB of L3 cache (conventionally 3 MB on the previous two generations), and 3 MB of L3 cache on the Pentium dual-core parts (typically 2 MB on previous generations).

    Hyperthreading on the i3 now? Wasn't hyperthreading a core i7-only feature last generation?

    I thought that was what made an i3.
    i3 2 cores + 2 threads
    i5 4 cores
    i7 4 cores + 4 threads

    My i3-2330m has 2 cores + 2 threads.

    i3's have always had hyperthreading. That is basically what seperated them from the Pentium class.

    &
    i9 8 cores!?! :eek:


    Anyway, wonder if Pentiums or i3 are finally PCI-Express 3.0 ready...
    If not, I'm almost sure I won't be making any builds around them... and do more Kaveris. LOL

    Would be nice to overclock one of those $100 dualies to 4.5ghz+ for a nice budget system, yes I would too.

    I want overclockable Pentium dual cores. Why stop there. Overclockable everything.

    I'll take one.

    $136 for an i3 is a bit expensive, no?

    So, let me get this straight:
    -Celeron: Dual Core
    -Pentium: Dual Core
    -Core i3: Dual Core w/HT
    -Core i5: Quad Core
    -Core i7: Quad Core w/HT

    ^Yep.

    But those are for the desktop CPUs and the first generation of i5's has their own share of dual core + HT models, the i5 6xx models. Their difference from the i3 is that i5 dual cores have turbo.

    For mobile computers, i5's are all dual core with HT's as well, even i7's have their dual core models in the mobile space (all has HT's) and the Q ones being quads

    Better yet, I'll have the i11 with 8 cores & HT.

    During the Sandy Bridge era, there was also single-core versions for the Celeron variants.

    Also

    -Celeron: Dual Core no turbo
    -Pentium: Dual Core no turbo
    -Core i3: Dual Core w/HT, no turbo
    -Core i5: Quad Core w/ turbo
    -Core i7: Quad Core w/HT & turbo

    This is for desktop list. For laptops is very different i5 being actually a dual core. Yeah, crappy Intel.
