Intel has just launched a series of budget-friendly CPUs based on its Ivy Bridge microarchitecture. According to CPU World, Intel has launched a total of seven new additions to its Celeron and Pentium series. Intel’s Celeron family are welcoming three new chips – the G1610, G1610T, and the G1620. The G1610 and G1610T are clocked at 2.6GHz and 2.7GHz, respectively, while the G1620 is clocked at 2.3GHz. Pricing is set at $42, $42, and $52, respectively. Additionally, Intel also launched four Pentium processors, namely, the G2010, G2020, G2120T, and the G2130.

The G2010 is clocked at 2.8GHz and is priced at $64 while the G2020 is clocked at 2.9GHz with a $64 price tag. The remaining two new Pentium processors – the G2120T ($64) and G2130 ($86) – are clocked at 2.5GHz and 3.2GHz, respectively. The chip maker also launched a new Core i3-3210 chip that is also clocked at 3.2GHz. But it gets even better, thanks to its four processing threads and HD 2500 graphics. Obviously you’ll have to fork a much larger amount of $117 for it. Note that the Celeron CPUs all have 2MB of L3 cache while the new Pentium chips have 3MB of L3 cache.
