Intel adds 4 mobile Celeron CPUs to official price list
Today Intel revised their official price list, and added 4 new Celeron microprocessors, based on older Sandy Bridge microarchitecture. New Celerons are 807 and 877 for thin and light notebooks, as well as B730 and B820 for entry-level mainstream notebooks. First details of these products were disclosed by Fudzilla in March and April of this year, and the processors were expected to launch this quarter. According to our sources, the Celerons were supposed to be released at the end of the Q3, therefore we were somewhat baffled by this early launch. New SKUs come with 35% lower prices than their predecessors, which can be explained by increased competition from AMD x86 and ARM-based mobile devices in the low-end of the mobile market.
All 4 Celerons integrate HD graphics, and support only basic Sandy Bridge features, such as Intel 64, VT-x virtualization, and SIMD instruction up to SSE4. Intel 807 and 877 have 17 Watt TDP, and they are produced in a BGA package. These chips have HD graphics clocked at 350 MHz, and up to 950 MHz or 1000 MHz, depending on SKU. Celeron B730 and B820 are mainstream 35 Watt processors in socket G2 compatible package. Their on-chip GPU operates at higher frequencies, from 650 MHz stock speed and up to 1 GHz / 1.05 GHz.
Celeron 807 and B730 have single CPU core with 1.5 L3 cache. They operate at 1.5 GHz and 1.8 GHz respectively, and support HyperThreading technology. Both processors are priced at $70, and they replace 797 and B720 SKUs.
Celeron 877 and B820 have two cores, but they have HyperThreading disabled. The chips incorporate 2 MB L3 cache, and run at 1.4 and 1.7 GHz. Official price of these CPUs is $86 in 1K tray quantities. These models will supersede 867 and B815 SKUs.
