According to leaked slides from Intel roadmap, dated by March 2011, Celeron G540 will be launched in Q3 2011 together with two other Celerons - G440 and G530. This CPU will use Sandy Bridge core, and that is the only thing known about it. The G540 is intended as a replacement for dual-core Celeron E3500, which was built on three-generation older Wolfdale core.

Feb 06, 2013: Intel this week announced plans to retire 28 Sandy Bridge desktop CPUs from Celeron, Pentium, Core i3 and Core i5 families. After successful transition of budget desktop microprocessors from Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge microarchitecture, it's not surprising to see all phased out parts to be end of lifed.

Intel launches new Celerons, refreshes Pentium and Core families
Sep 04, 2011: Over the course of past few months, we published a series of stories detailing Intel plans to release new desktop Celeron processors, and refresh existing Pentium and Core-branded families. Today Intel made public new pricelist, that confirms specifications and prices of all models, that we reported on before.

Prices of upcoming Intel desktop CPUs
Jul 27, 2011: In September, Intel plans to release new Sandy Bridge Celeron processors, as well as refresh budget and mid-class desktop processor families. In total, there will be 11 models: four Celerons, three Pentiums, three Core 3s, and one Core i5 SKU. Specifications of these microprocessors were known for quite some time. Prices for several Celeron and Core i3 chips were published by Fudzilla news site in June. Three days ago, VR-Zone revealed prices for other upcoming Celeron, Pentium and Core i3 CPUs.

Intel Celeron G440, G530 and G540 specifications
May 11, 2011: One month ago we published a story about three new Celeron "Sandy Bridge" microprocessors, planned for the third quarter 2011. The Celerons with processor numbers G440, G530 and G540 were revealed by leaked roadmap slide, posted by, but no other information about these models was available at the time. We now have basic specifications of these Celeron parts, including core frequencies and some CPU features.

Intel Celeron Sandy Bridge CPUs to launch in Q3 2011
Apr 07, 2011: With the launch of Sandy Bridge micro-architecture in January of this year, Intel is gradually updating their desktop families beginning from the most expensive ones. The first Sandy Bridge CPUs were introduced for Core i7 and Core i5 families, and more Core i3 SKUs were added in February. Pentium SB parts with processor numbers G620, G620T, G840 and G850 will be available this quarter. According to slides we've seen, Intel is going to launch three Celeron Sandy Bridge models G440, G530 and G540 in the third quarter.
