Intel discontinues Bay Trail and mobile Core i7 CPUs
Feb 06, 2014
: Last September Intel released budget Bay Trail systems on a chip
for mobile and desktop markets, branded as Celeron and Pentium. The
processors were manufactured on 22nm technology, and featured
such enhancements as greater number of CPU cores, higher clock speeds,
beefed up graphics unit, not to mention an out-of-order
microarchitecture, that improved per-clock CPU performance by up to
30% compared to their predecessors. The first wave of Bay Trail SKUs
was followed in November by Burst-enabled models, that offered even
higher operating frequencies.
Intel cuts prices of mobile processors
Dec 29, 2013
: Intel today lowered prices on a handful of Core i5 and Core i7 mobile
processors, as well as on a few desktop CPUs for All In One systems.
The company also dropped prices on budget mobile Celeron CPUs, cutting
them by at least 13%, and as much as 22% - 26% on selected models.
Overall, the prices were cut by an average of 13.4%.
Intel refreshes Bay Trail-M CPU lineup
Nov 09, 2013
: In September Intel launched the latest generation of "Bay Trail-M"
ultra low voltage processors for netbooks and mobile devices. New
mobile CPUs, branded this time as Celeron and Pentium, offered
up to 2x times better CPU performance, and up to 3x time faster
graphics, while operating in the same power envelope as their "Cedar
Trail" predecessors. As if those improvements were not enough, Intel
this week refreshed Bay Trail-M lineup, releasing faster versions of
Celeron and Pentium products.
Intel to launch ULV Celeron processors
Nov 03, 2013
: Intel today updated the official price list, adding several
ultra-low voltage microprocessors to the mobile lineup. New Celeron
products are 2957U, 2981U, N2806, N2815, N2820 and N2920, and they are
priced from $132 to $137. All new processors are implemented as a
system-on-a-chip (SoC), and they integrate on a die up to 4 CPU cores,
a graphics unit, along with chipset logic.
Rumored specifications of Intel Bay Trail processors
Jul 07, 2013
: Intel is going to launch first Bay Trail systems on a chip (SoCs)
later this quarter, sometime at the end of August or in September.
Formerly codenamed "ValleyView", Bay Trail parts are manufactured on
22nm process, incorporate up to 4 CPU cores, along with Ivy Bridge
graphics unit. We already published some specifications of Celeron N2805,
N2810 and N2910 SKUs, that appeared in Intel's official pricelist long
before the launch.
New Intel mobile CPUs to launch in September
Jul 03, 2013
: Last week we reported on new desktop microprocessors, coming in Q3
2013. On September 1 in Asian region, and on September 29 everywhere
else, Intel is going to introduce Core i3 and Pentium Haswell CPUs,
along with several Ivy Bridge budget parts. Full list of forthcoming
desktop CPUs was published by VR-Zone Chinese edition a week ago, and
revealed processor numbers and launch dates of future mobile
Intel to launch Celeron N2805, N2810 and N2910 CPUs ... again
Jun 23, 2013
: One month ago Intel's official price list was updated with three
new ultra low voltage mobile products, that had model numbers N2805,
N2810 and N2910. The processors were manufactured on 22nm technology
and branded as Celerons, but some of their features suggested that
they were not based on Ivy Bridge or Haswell architecture.
Specifically, Celeron N2910 had 4 CPU cores, which is very unusual for
presumably budget processor.
Intel to release N2805, N2810 and N2910 ULV processors
May 26, 2013
: Intel today added three N2xxx series ultra-low voltage products to the official pricelist.
New processors have N2805, N2810 and N2910 model numbers, and they are fabricated on 22nm technology.
Despite the fact that they are listed in the "ULV Celeron M" section, their processor numbers
follow naming conventions for Atom mobile products. Also, one of these "Celeron Ms" has 4 CPU cores and no Hyper-Threading, which suggests that they could be based on ValleyView core, or ValleyView-M, to be more precise.
