Orders will stop being accepted on August 23, will ship while supplies lastYet another central processing unit from Intel Corporation is nearing the end of its official life, according to the latest product change notifications.
The Core i3-2130 CPU is a dual-core Sandy Bridge unit with a clock speed of 3.4 GHz and Hyper Threading support, which means that the operating system will see four logical cores instead of two.
It also has 3 MB cache memory, 64-bit instruction support and a TDP (thermal design power) of 65W.
Those interested in this chip will be allowed to place orders until August 23, 2013, after which they will no longer be allowed to cancel them. Shipments will continue while supplies last.
Sandy Bridge units will keep disappearing like this until Ivy Bridge is the only pre-Haswell line still live. It won't be too long, with moves like the killing of 28 chips.
