The Core i5 processor without PGI are launched

Intel updates its listings and introduced three new Core i5 processor that offer no graphical part.

In the item listing of Intel Sandy Bridge Core i5 processor range processors non-IGP (integrated graphics system) are introduced. In addition to the graphic part, they lack also virtualization VT - d. Three processors embarked: Core i5-2550K, Core i5-2450P, Core i5-2380P. Overall, these chips are hardly interesting as proposed at rates almost similar to the equivalent versions of the PGI.

Indeed, the Core i5-2550K is same $ 9 more expensive than the i5-2500K to provide 100 MHz more, while talking processor ratio multiplier released and very easily "overclockables". A Core i5-2380P however, allows to an i5-2400 also running at 3.1 GHz, save$ 7. As noticed by our colleagues from, it seems that Intel is there trying to recycle its dies quad-core 32 nm on which the PGI is not functional. A good idea, of course, provided that the effort on the price is greater...

The high-end Intel Core i5 processor (socket LGA 1155), price for 1000 units:

Core i5-2550K @ 3.4 GHz = $ 225
Core i5-2500K @ 3.3 GHz = $ 216
Core i5-2500 @ 3.3 GHz = $ 205
Core i5-2450P @ 3.2 GHz = $ 195
Core i5-2400 @ 3.1 GHz = $ 184
Core i5-2380P @ 3.1 GHz = $ 177
Core i5-2320 @ 3.0 GHz = $ 177
Core i5-2300 @ 2.9 GHz = $ 177
