Posted on Feb 2 2012 - 3:27pm by Editorial Staff

Intel ahead of its Ivy Bridge Chips big launch which is due later this year, the semiconductor chip maker giant has released seven new Sandy Bridge based CPUs – four Celeron  and three Core i5 models. All the Celeron SKUs are mobile consists of two standard voltage and two ultra-low voltage models while i5 SKUs are desktop models.

AnandTech notes that as for the CPUs in general, i5-2550K is obviously the successor of i5-2500K. It has 100MHz (i.e. one CPU bin) higher frequencies than i5-2500K and is priced $9 higher. Similarly, i5-2450P and i5-2380P are successors of i5-2400 and i5-2320—the i5-2450P being $11 more expensive and i5-2380P being priced the same as its predecessor. Celeron B815 replaces B810 at the $86 price point; they share the same core specs while the GPU gets a bump in maximum clock from 950MHz to 1050MHz.

Along with, B720 also succeeds B710 with 100MHz higher frequency and the same $70 price tag. Celeron 867 becomes the new high-end ULV Celeron by taking the place of 857 at the price point of $134 with 100MHz higher frequency, and 797 increases the frequency by 100MHz to 1.4GHz in the $107 category and replaces 787.
