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.
