Intel Releases Two Pentium and Two Core i-series CPUsby Kristian Vättö on October 5, 2011 9:33 AM EST
Intel has updated their product database (ARK) with four new CPUs. Two of these are branded as Pentiums: 967 and B960. The former is a low-power model with only 17W TDP for BGA-1023 socket. The latter is a regular 35W TDP for rBGA-998 socket. The two new Core i-series CPUs are i5-2430M and i7-2670QM. As the naming suggest, the i5 part is dual core whereas the i7 is a quad core chip. All these CPUs are mobile variants and based on Sandy Bridge microarchitecture. Below is a table with more in-depth specifications:
|Pentium 967||Pentium B960||i5-2430M||i7-2670QM|
|Graphics||Intel HD 3000||Intel HD 3000||Intel HD 3000||Intel HD 3000|
|Max Graphics Turbo||N/A||N/A||1.2GHz||1.1GHz|
Pentium 967 is the only newcomer, the other three CPUs are just slightly higher clocked versions of their predecessors.
