    Looks like i'll have to pip for one of these later along with a new board as my brothers motherboard finally gave up the ghost and i got a buyer for the G620.

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Yep. My brother has had constant trouble with build though (Z75/G620) and yesterday morning the board completely died so its back off to Aria. I already planned on selling the CPU to upgrade him to an i3, so these appear to have released at the right time.

    Strange pricing structure - why would anyone buy the 2100 when it's the same price as the 3220??

    For a media centre PC HD4000 is key. If only HD2500 then not really up to it.

    So if these come in 35 TDP and HD4000 then the i3 looks very tempting

    Sadly I have just paid for and installed an i7-3770T in my HTPC so no need to change, comes in at 45 TDP but seems to be running a little hotter than I would like (about 3C too high), but I have suspicions that the ASRock Hardware monitor may be overstating temps (as has happened on other ASRock boards)

    The Ivy Bridge chips replace the Sandy bridge ones.
