Intel Introduces new Pentium chip for servers

Pentium 350 is based on Intel’s Sandy Bridge architecture

By CBR Staff Writer

Chip maker Intel has come out with a processor Pentium 350, which is based on Intel’s Sandy Bridge architecture, for servers. It is a dual-core processor and is clocked at 1.2GHz, with 3MB of cache.

The Pentium 350 does not have features such as integrated graphics, which are present on most of Intel’s laptop and desktop processors.

The new processor, which draws 15 watts of power, is not meant to be a replacement to Intel’s current low-power Atom processors.

It does not have an on-chip graphics unit but supports Hyper-Threading, and it works with ECC memory.

Rated at just 15W TDP, it might very well be the lowest TDP of any Intel desktop chip that’s not part of the Atom family, as per Fudzilla.

Although it’s listed as a "Pentium", it looks more like a Xeon E3-1220L in drag.

Intel says this Pentium won’t be available as a desktop CPU, and will only be shipped in micro-servers.
