In January Intel launched first Y-series ultra low voltage microprocessors for ultrabooks and thin-and-light notebooks. These parts offer reduced power consumption in comparison with Intel's "U" series of ULV products, albeit at the expense of lower performance. At this time, the "Y" processors are branded as Mobile Pentium, Core i3, i5 and i7, depending on their features. Mobile Celeron line didn't have its own "Y" chip, although this will change soon. We recently learned that Intel plans to launch Celeron 1019Y SKU in the second quarter 2013.
Celeron 1019Y is an Ivy Bridge part with 2 CPU cores, 2 MB L3 cache, dual-channel memory controller and HD graphics. The Celeron comes with standard features, such as EM64T and basic virtualization technologies, and it doesn't support more advanced features, like Turbo Boost or HyperThreading. On-chip HD graphics is clocked at 350 MHz, and can be boosted as high as 800 MHz. Integrated memory controller supports DDR3 and DDR3L memory types with data rates up to 1600 MHz. The 1019Y boasts 10 Watt Thermal Design Power, and can be clocked down to achieve even lower 7 Watt Scenario Design Power. You may notice that these specifications are very close to Pentium 2129Y, except that the Celeron has slower clock speed, and slightly lower maximum graphics frequency. Celeron 1019Y will be available in the second quarter 2013.
