Intel has expanded the chipmaker’s Sandy Bridge range of CPUs with a number of new Core i5 and Celeron M models.
At the bottom end of the scale, Intel announced new Celerons including the dual-core Celeron M B815 clocked at 1.6GHz and the single core Celeron M B720, priced at US$86 and $70 respectively. A new 1.3GHz dual-core Celeron M ULV 867 ultra low-voltage model also appeared priced at $134 so long as you’re buying a thousand.
The beefier Core i5 range gained two new quad-core chips, the i5-2450P clocked at 3.2GHz and the i5-2380P with a 3.1GHz clock. The new P-variants don’t have a built-in graphics core, or at least it’s been disabled at any rate. That means they’re about US$10 cheaper than the non-P variants.
The processors appeared in Intel’s processor pricing list dated the 29th of January.
