Intel Celeron G1610T - CM8063701445100
Celeron G1610T is an entry-level low-power CPU for budget desktop PCs. Specifications and launch date of this Celeron were published by Fudzilla in October 2012, and the processor was released in January 2013 with an official price of $42. Also in January, Intel released Celeron G1610 and G1620 products. All three were the first Celerons with "Ivy Bridge" microarchitecture, that improved processing efficiency, GPU performance, and memory data rates. Compared to its predecessor, the Celeron G1610T also had 100 MHz higher operating frequency.
Specifications of the G1610T are not different from other Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge Celerons. In addition to 2 CPU cores and 2MB L3 cache, the microprocessor integrates dual-channel DDR3 memory controller and HD graphics unit on a die, manufactured using 22nm technology. The CPU cores operate at 2.3 GHz, which is about 11% - 15% slower than similar priced Celeron CPUs with higher TDP. On the other hand, this microprocessor is 36% more energy efficient. Intel G1610T incorporates older extensions to instructions set, up to SSE4, and supports all basic features. One of such features is Intel 64, or EM64T, which is required to run 64-bit operating systems. Another feature, Execute disable bit, is useful for protecting computer from certain types of viruses. The CPU also supports Virtualization technology, that improves performance of virtualization software. More advanced features, such as Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading, are not supported. Being an entry-level processor, the G1610T is not recommended for CPU or GPU intensive applications. Nevertheless, the processor has no difficulty to run simple programs, like e-mail agents or web browsers.
Integrated Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) on this microprocessor is clocked at 650 MHz, and can boost frequency to 1050 MHz as needed. The GPU supports HD video, and can be used for 2D graphics, as well as for casual 3D games. However, the GPU is not powerful enough for the latest games because it lacks so called execution units, that provide 3D acceleration. Furthermore, it doesn't support Clear Video HD, Quick Sync Video, InTru 3D and Wireless Display technologies, that are available on Core i3, i5 and i7 products.
Celeron G1610T has has 35 Watt TDP, which makes it ideal for
"always-on" computers, like HTPC systems or small home servers. The
CPU utilizes socket 1155.

Intel launches budget desktop CPUs
Jan 20, 2013: Intel Ivy Bridge microarchitecture was available for almost 9 months now, but so far only Core branded families have been transitioned to the new microarchitecture. Up to now, all desktop Celerons were based on older Sandy Bridge architecture, and desktop Pentium lineup had a mix of Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge CPUs. Today Intel added seven new SKUs to Celeron and Pentium families. Celeron family was updated with G1610, G1610T and G1620, that succeeded G400 and G500 series parts.
New Mobile Celeron processors to launch in Q1 2013
Dec 02, 2012: Next microarchitecture from Intel, codenamed Haswell, will be launched in the second quarter 2013, but before then the company will refresh existing desktop and mobile lineups, releasing more than a dozen of new models. We previously reported on new Celeron and Pentium desktop CPUs, as well as mobile Core i5 and i7 processors, coming next quarter. According to Digitimes, Intel will also launch a few mobile Celeron microprocessors from 1000-series.
Future Celeron and Pentium CPUs surface on Biostar's website
Nov 23, 2012: We previously reported that Intel plans to complete transition to Ivy Bridge microarchitecture in Q1 2013 by releasing new Celeron and Pentium desktop microprocessors. Overall, the company will launch 7 SKUs, including G1610T and G2020T low-power models. Characteristics of these products are already known, and some of them were even spotted in specifications of Dell desktop PCs. Now the CPUs has surfaced in CPU support lists on the Biostar website.
Bits and pieces: upcoming budget CPUs spotted, Pentium G2010 planned
Oct 30, 2012: One month ago we reported on unreleased Core i3-3210 microprocessor, spotted on Intel's website. Although the webiste provided such details, as S-Spec and box part numbers, remaining features of new model were unknown. Based on the processor number, we assumed that the i3-3210 may operate at slightly lower frequency than Core i3-3220, which is the slowest Ivy Bridge Core i3 currently in production. Recently we confirmed slower clock speed of the Core i3-3210.
Ivy Bridge Celeron CPUs coming in Q1 2013
Oct 14, 2012: Last month Intel began transitioning its budget desktop lineup to Ivy Bridge microarchitecture. In September they released the first two Pentium CPUs with Ivy Bridge core, and two more models are coming in the 1st quarter 2013. Also in the first quarter, Intel will introduce three "Ivy Bridge" Celeron CPUs. According to Fudzilla, the Celerons will have G1610, G1610T and G1620 processor numbers.
