Mobile Ivy Bridge Celeron CPUs to launch in Q1 2013
New mobile Celeron 1000M, 1020M, 1007U and 1037U CPUs are coming in the first quarter 2013. Model numbers of these processors were revealed by DigiTimes earlier this month, but so far their details remained sketchy. It was known that the Celerons will utilize Ivy Bridge microarchitecture, and they will replace ULV and mainstream budget chips from 800 and B800 series. Other features of 1000M, 1007U, 1020M and 1037U CPUs were unknown, but now we have their full specifications.
Intel decided to discontinue B730 and 807 SKUs sometime around first quarter 2013, and not to release new single-core Celeron processors starting next year. Consequentially, all upcoming Ivy Bridge Celerons will have two CPU cores. The processors will also have 2 MB L3 cache, HD graphics, and Intel 64 and Virtualization VT-x technologies.
Ultra-low voltage Celeron 1007U and 1037U will have 17 Watt TDP, and they will be produced in a BGA package. The 1007U will be clocked at 1.5 GHz, i.e. on a par with the Celeron 887, which is the fastest production Celeron ULV model at this time. The 1037U will operate at 1.8 GHz, and will offer up to 20% better performance than the 1007U. Integrated HD graphics on "U" CPUs will operate at 350 MHz, and as high as 1 GHz. The ULV processors will support DDR3-1333 memory.
Intel 1000M and 1020M will have 35 Watt TDP. The processors will run at 1.8 and 2.1 GHz respectively, and have HD graphics clocked at 650 MHz, and up to 1 GHz. Taking into consideration that Ivy Bridge architecture is about 5% - 6% faster per clock than Sandy Bridge, the 1000M should perform about the same as Celeron B840, whereas the 1020M will be up to 15% faster. The "M" CPUs will support DDR3-1600 memory, and they will be available in a socket G2-compatible rPGA package:
