Default Intel Releases New Core i5 & Mobile Celeron Processors

Intel quietly rolled out 7 new processor models this past weekend, 3 belonging to the desktop Core i5 family and 4 belonging to the mobile Celeron family. With this launch also comes Intel's first "P" models (E, K, S and T weren't enough, it seems!), which simply denotes that the processor does not include integrated graphics - something that at this point knocks about $10 off the price.

Read through the rest of our post and then discuss it here!

That new i5 is i5ail. Yeah, I know...that one sucked, but it's true. Extra cash for a few more gigglehurtz?

Overclock the 2500K to likely what the 2550K is capable of (I can't see it being any different) and pocket the rest.

I was hoping to read that it was the same price as the 2500K and that a price drop was coming.

I like HyperThreading far too much to not opt for the 2600/2700K, but I agree, the 2550K is kind of an odd duck. Intel's line-up has always been chock-full of models that don't make a ton of sense.
