Intel plans "Ivy Bridge" embedded Celeron CPUs in Q1 2013
Intel already switched all mid- and high-end embedded processors to "Ivy Bridge" microarchitecture, and at this time "Sandy Bridge" CPUs are only available in the value segment of the embedded market. This is going to change in the Q1 2013, when embedded Celerons with 17 Watt and 35 Watt TDP will be transitioned to the latest architecture. The company is going to release three models: Celeron 1020E, and ultra-low voltage 927UE and 1047UE. These SKUs will replace Celeron B810/810E, 827E and 847E respectively. New embedded processors are often released at the same time as desktop or mobile counterparts. As such, we suspect that Intel may also launch mobile Celeron processors with Ivy Bridge core in the first quarter 2013.
There won't be any changes in basic features of "Ivy Bridge" Celerons. The processors will have 1 CPU core with 1 MB of level 3 cache, or 2 cores with 2 MB L3 cache. The processors will integrate HD graphics, and support Virtualization technology. The Celerons will also support SIMD instructions up to SSE3.
Celeron 1020E SKU will be a dual-core processor with 35 watt TDP. It will be clocked at 2.2 GHz, that is 300 MHz faster than the fastest at the moment mobile Celeron B840. HD graphics unit on this chip will run at 650 MHz, and up to 1 GHz. The 1020E will be produced in BGA and socket G2-compatible PGA packages. The BGA variant will support ECC memory.
Celeron 927UE and 1047UE will have 1 and 2 cores respectively. The 927UE will operate at 1.5 GHz, and the 1047UE will be 100 MHz slower. Both parts will have GPU clocked at 350 MHz, that could be boosted up to 900 MHz. The CPUs will be rated at 17 Watt TDP, and produced in BGA packages:
