I figured Intel wouldn't drop the Celeron. If anything, possibly a name change or integrate it into another family and give it a different model designation.

A few 32nm Celerons are already in production, at least according to Intel's website. ( E.g. http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=43523 ) May be OEM only though - I haven't seen them for sale anywhere.

The marketing that went into Celeron from an early stage is still effective today with the consumer market looking for value based systems. Not everyone needs an i3, i5 or i7 processor.

It's just a name they can hang onto any chip they feel like. It makes no difference.

That's a silly argument, no? The i3 is much slower than a C2D. Heck, the Celeron might even be faster than an i3. Celeron is the answer to a question nobody asked. Let it die.

the celeron is nowhere near as fast as an i3. single-core with 512kb of l2 cache? thats not even as fast as old P4's. even if you get a top notch celeron (dual core with 1mb cache), thats still not even as good as ur cheapest core 2 duo. but yes, let the celeron die please. Atoms should be the new cheap-line proc.

no matter how much they improve the Celeron, not one of you will buy it for anything. You are NOT Intel's target with the Celeron. If you just want to browse the Internet, check your email, and maybe play a few games on Pogo or Facebook, guess what? Celerons are just fine. Not everyone requires a damn quad core for Email.

People want cheaper computers, and the Celeron allows Intel room to improve on the budget end, which if you haven't noticed, AMD is slaughtering at. People that want the Intel name for cheap can get a Celeron, you'll get what you pay for, but you're not paying that much, and the chip will suffice for everyday purposes.

I'm so tired of every jackoff thinking they need a quad core/6-8GB/2TB/58xx system because they want to be able to check their email WHILE they're playing solitaire. I can do that and a whole lot more on my 5 year old craptop.

"I think I need that i7 chip in my laptop, Facebook has been lagging my system".

Really? Kill Yourself, people incapable of measuring their needs.

Celeron is a brand for simpletons and businesses.

Consumer A goes into a store and wants a laptop. The salesperson asks what they're going to do with it, and they respond with email, Facebook, and YouTube. The salesperson recommends a netbook, but no, netbooks are too slow, so they've heard. The salesperson recommends a notebook with an AMD processor, but no, Intel is better, so they've heard. The only thing left in the consumers price range is Celeron, and thus, another sale is made.

With businesses, these companies get stuck in ridiculous sales and service agreements with big names like HP or Dell. Company B needs 10,000 desktop computers. These are for marketing, finance, presentations, etc... Computer Retailer C recommends Celeron desktops, at the cheap cheap price of $1000/year 3-year leases. This is such a steal compared to $2000/year 4-year leases on "engineering" pcs with Core 2 processors that the order is immediately placed.

Really, I can't think of another scenario where a Celeron is ever purchased willingly.

I could see them in notebooks and netbooks. Intel's power consumption has always been better than AMD's.

“We will not take [32nm process technology and appropriate micro-architecture] down into the Pentium (...)"

Well, they actually did... when they launched the Core i3's and Dual Core i'5, they also lauched a 2.8 Ghz, 3Mb L2 Cache Pentium G6950... so, they are not quite right. They meant a full lineup, probably, and like someone said earlier, the same applies to the Celeron, which is available to OEM's right now.

Why do they have about 1200+ models of cpu's instead of 3 or 6 per market segment ?
They should spend time mass producing usable cpu's instead like the 12 and 24 cores since the mid 1990's and stop manipulating the market / price fixing with old junk like this.

My mobile phone already has a 1ghz cpu in it so how long can they keep this celerons going ?

Tomorrows comments:
O mister your new Intel celeron pc is lamer / weaker than your 2 year old mobile phone ?? LMAO

Damn this sounds like Apple and their first / current Intel crap tops "overpriced laptops".

My satellite receiver box might still use something old like a 500mhz or 800mhz celeron cpu (media centre pc 8 years old pc).

It is obvious they are trying to squeeze the last bit of life out of stuff that should not work anymore.

Maybe if they stop changing the cpu socket 20 times in 1 year they could become more productive / competitive seeing very few can afford to spend $700-$900 for i3/i5/i7 6core box that barely has 3% to 5% performance increase over what they have had for the last 3 years "q9550".

Celerons suck. When people ask my advise. I always advise against it. Today you are better off with a Core i3, i5, Athlon 2 or Phenom 2. They would cost only a little bit more and work SOOO much better.

lauxenburgG1101? I swore I saw that on Intel Ark....I could have been high, but I swear I saw a 32nm Celeron...

The G1101 (2M Cache, 2.26 GHz, dual-core) is a low end/low power server chip for the LGA 1165. New Egg has systems right now. It looks like they also have the P1053 for 1366 too.

The E3xxx's are really cool running, make great HTPC chips. They are more or less updates of the E2xxx Conroes.

I think the current batch of Celerons make a good bottom for modern computing. My Atom N450 can't handle HD flash while my E3300 has no problem.

the current celeron lineup is freaking awesome. (for thos who think im crazy check out the e3000 series reviews on newegg) I have build 3 of these systems (E3300) and have been very impressed with the price: performance ratio. These lil guys can be overclocked up to 4ghz. I had two systems stable at 3.6ghz. Get a decent GPU and you have yourself a killer budget gamer. Don't believe me? build one...its awesome. I can't wait to play around with the 32nm lineup.

there's so much wrong here i don't know where to start. chronologically, alphebetically, severity of wrongness...


there's a reason chips keep upgrading its called die shrinks for efficiency and speed, addition of cache, betterway of processing threads. do you really think a 2.8 Ghz chip from 4 years ago can compete with a 2.8 in todays market... not a chance.

as for your phone... yes it runs at the same frequency but can't even do a fraction of the calculations of a 1Ghz processor from even a 8-10 year old desktop... the reason they market the useless statictic of ghz instead of operations is so ill informed consumers have a bragging point ... why do you think amd had to initiate P ratings back in the day to show thier lower frequency chips were perfoming more efficiently than intel chips so they had to market them with higher ratings to let ill informed consumers (like yourself) know where thier performance was in line with despipte their lower frequency

as for your claims of 3-5% performance gains in the i3-i5-i7 .... have you read anythign abotu them... and more importantly did you understand what you read? cause i'm here to tell you that if you think you did then you're wrong.

the only reason they are keeping the celeron name is
marketing... should toyota stop calling a tundra a tundra because they put a more efficient engine and redesigned the body.... no cause its a name to a model in thier product line that has evolved with time (and talented engeneering dept) into what it is today. celeron has been thier model for a while and its accepted around because it represents good value in the market and intel doesn't wanna lose that name

in short... intel is upgrading the celeron and thats actually a good thing for people on a budget or who prefer intel chips!

your rant is defeated and proven pointless as having come from the kind of ill informed consumer base that this site itself tries to defeat with benchmakrs and performance graphs... now please go hang your head in shame
