Two Celeron ULV CPUs coming in Q3
Intel budget processors are usually the last to transition to new microarchitecture, and this time is not an exception. Although Ivy Bridge will launch in a month, we won't see IB Celeron and Pentium CPUs for another two or three quarters. In the meantime, Intel plans to refresh existing Celeron and Pentium lineups, which is confirmed by two recent reports. Yesterday we reported on new budget desktop Intel processors to be available later this year. Also yesterday, Fudzilla revealed details on Ultra-Low Voltage (ULV) mobile Celeron 807 and 877 CPUs, that will be released in the third quarter. We suspect that more new entry-level Sandy Bridge processors will appear in the next month or two.
Celeron 807 and 877 microprocessors are 17 Watt parts, that feature one or two CPU cores, three-level cache architecture, DDR3 memory controller with DDR3-1333 support, and integrated HD graphics with 350 MHz base frequency. The 807 and 877 models are going to replace 797 and 867 SKUs, introduced in January of this year.
Intel 807 model has one core, but it may process two threads at once with the help of Hyper-Threading technology. The chip is clocked at 1.5 GHz, and the maximum GPU turbo frequency is 950 MHz. The size of L3 cache on this model is 1.5 MB.
Celeron 877 has two CPU cores, operating at 1.4 GHz, and 2 MB L3 cache. This SKU doesn't support Hyper-Threading. Integrated GPU on the 877 may go as high as 1 GHz in Turbo mode.
Both processors will be available in the third quarter 2012.
