Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs
Like any Intel launch, there's lots of products being introduced today and while it's not quite as aggressive as some of the previous ones because Intel officially launched the Z77 chipset earlier in the month, today is the day we feel that the Z77 chipset really launches as it's part of the Ivy Bridge platform on a whole.
Looking above you can see we've got a total of 14 processors split amongst a high-end mobile offering, eight i7 processors split into three categories and five new i5 processors split into two categories. Along with that we've also got eight new chipset offerings in two categories and five new wireless options to round out what is essentially the Ivy Bridge launch.
Ignoring the mobile offerings and instead choosing to get straight into what's on offer from the desktop line up, you can see below the new Standard Power 77w TDP chips and Low Power 65w and 45w TDP chips.
Our main focus today is of course the top i7 3770k carrying a $313 MSRP price tag. Looking above you can see it's a 4 Core / 8 Thread CPU with a 77w TDP. Its base clock is 3.5GHz with a Turbo Frequency of 3.9GHz. Like all CPUs here it shares support for 1600MHz DDR memory. On the L3 cache front we've got 8MB on offer with the new HD 4000 graphics.
The chip most similar to the i7 3770k is the non k based 3770. Looking above you can see from the main features stand point the only thing it lacks is a 100MHz lower base clock speed. In the Low Power line up we've got two more i7 CPUs that carry a 4 Core / 8 Thread setup in the 3770T and 3770S. While they still carry the same HD 4000 graphics, 8MB L3 cache, they've got different clock speeds and lower TDPs.
Moving away from the i7 line up we move to the i5 4 Core / 4 Thread chips and like above you can see the different speeds and offerings. Outside of the thread count difference and 6MB L3 cache versus 8MB setup, the move to the HD 2500 based graphics on all but the i5 3570k is the big stand out.
