In a few days Intel is going to launch new Pentium and Core i3 "Haswell" processors, priced from about $70 to $170 (preorder prices). Less expensive Celeron line will be also updated with two SKUs, G1630 and G1620T, however they will be based on older microarchitecture. Haswell Celerons will be available only in the first quarter of 2014, when Intel releases G1820T, G1820 and G1830 models. The "T" SKU is a low power chip, and two latter processors are mainstream products.
The features of Haswell Celeron products are very similar to their Ivy Bridge counterparts. All CPUs incorporate 2 cores with shared 2 MB L3 cache, dual-channel memory controller and HD graphics. The memory controller supports DDR3-1333 memory. The on-chip GPU is clocked at up to 1050 MHz. The Haswell Celerons come with very basic set of features, and lack such technologies as Hyper-Threading, Vpro and AES.
The fastest Celeron processor from the lineup, the G1830, operates at 2.8 GHz. While it has the same frequency as the unreleased yet G1630, the G1830 has an advantage of more efficient microarchitecture. Likewise, the G1820 with slightly lower 2.7 GHz core frequency replaces production G1620 SKU. The G1820 and G1830 are rated at 54 Watt.
The only planned low-power Haswell Celeron is G1820T. The CPU runs at 2.4 GHz, and has 35 Watt TDP. Remaining processor's features are identical to G1820/G1830 CPUs:
|Celeron G1820||2 / 2||2.7 GHz||2 MB||HD||1050 MHz||DDR3-1333||54 Watt|
|Celeron G1820T||2 / 2||2.4 GHz||2 MB||HD||1050 MHz||DDR3-1333||35 Watt|
|Celeron G1830||2 / 2||2.8 GHz||2 MB||HD||1050 MHz||DDR3-1333||54 Watt|
All three models will be launched in Q1 2014.
