VR-Zone have had a sneak peak at Intel’s new CPU roadmap, which encompasses quarters 2, 3 and 4 of 2011 and the 1st quarter of 2012. It has been revealed that Intel will be introducing a whole host of new entry level Sandy Bridge-based CPUs under the Pentium brand name. In the image below we can deduce that these new Pentium CPUs will be introduced towards the end of May and will apparently bare similarities to the existing Core i3 CPU but without Hyper Threading. Clock speeds are expected to peak at 3GHz.  Interestingly enough a new Core i3-2105 looks to become the first non-K series chip to also include HD 3000 integrated graphics. This will certainly help blur the line between mid-range consumer desktop class processors and low end editions, which will now feature more comparable graphics performance.  The new Pentium CPUs will be known as the the G620T, the G620, the G840 and the G850.
