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

: 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.

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.
