CPU World reports Intel is prepping an embedded Pentium G2120, this chip will be released in Q4 2012.
Pentium G2120 is a dual-core CPU clocked at 3.1 GHz. This is 100 MHz higher than the fastest at this time desktop Pentium, and on a par with upcoming G870 Sandy Bridge model. Like all Sandy Bridge Pentiums, Intel G2120 will have 3 MB level 3 cache, and support only basic technologies, like Intel 64 and VT-x virtualization. More advanced technologies, such as Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading, and AES / AVX instructions, will not be supported. The G2120 will integrate Ivy Bridge HD GPU, that will operate at 650 MHz, and can be boosted as high as 1050 MHz. Although frequencies of Pentium GPU are identical to Core i3 GPU, it will be less capable than HD 2500 graphics on Core-branded microprocessors. Intel G2120 will work with DDR3-1600 ECC memory, fit into 65 Watt power envelope, and require socket 1155. The processor will be released in the 4th quarter 2012.
