Default Info about these CULV Ivy Bridge microprocessors

Does Intel provide any data about the number of transistors used in all of its processors ?

Intel has provided info about the number of transistors in mostly all other processors, but i failed to get any info on the number of transistors in these:

Intel® Core™ i3-3217U ARK | Intel® Core
Intel® Core™ i5-3317U ARK | Intel® Core
Intel® Core™ i5-3427U ARK | Intel® Core

All are "Ivy Bridge" (22 nm) based processors.

I am just curious as to why Intel has not provided this info intentionally, if that is the case.

Ivy Bridge processors have 22nm transistors in them.
According to this website, that i3 processor has 624 million transistors. So it doesn't seem to be a secret. Maybe Intel just got lazy when they made those web pages.

22nm is the silicon size, not the transistor amount.

I don't really the point in knowing the transistor count because it really doesn't matter.

Yeah I know nm stands for nano meter. I should of said 22nm sized transistors instead of 22nm transistors. I sounded like an idiot I know.

Thanks! I just wanted to know why Intel did not publish this info.
Maybe, Veraster is right - they just got lazy.

You can probably find it somewhere. It's just information people normally don't care to see.
