Sandy Bridge Pentium processors unveiled
The details of the new models were ousted by Expreview and you can find a nice diagram here of the four new models, alongside the previously known Core isomethingmeaningless Sandy Bridge processors. All four models are dual core processors without Hyper Threading support, but this is hardly a surprise, as thatís the same case with the current crop of LGA-1156 Pentium processors. Three out of the four models are 65W TDP parts, while the fourth is a T model with a 35W TDP. So starting with the Pentium G620T we have a 2.2GHz part with 3MB of L3 cache and a 650/1100MHz graphics core.

Next up we have the Pentium G620 which is a 2.6GHz part, again with 3MB of L3 cache, but a faster graphics clock of 850/1100MHz. Then we jump all the way to the Pentium G840 which is 200MHz faster at 2.8GHz, with the rest of the spec remaining the same. Finally we have the Pentium G850 which is 100MHz faster at 2.9GHz, but again otherwise identical as far as we can tell. These models are like to be paired up with the H61 chipset which is Intelís entry level solution for the Sandy Bridge processors, although we has as yet to see any motherboards based on it. Weíre also hearing that the H61 chipset will be what Intel will replace its LGA-775 platform with over time, although thatís unlikely to happen until the end of next year at the earliest.
