Targeted as replacements for the entry-level and ULV Celeron 800 and B800 series, Intel will introduce two ultra-low voltage processors, the 1.5 GHz 1007U and the 1.8 GHz 1037U, both of which arrive with a TDP of 17 watts and support for DDR3-1333 memory. The mainstream models, the 1.8 GHz 1000M and the 2.1 GHz 1020M are rated at 35 watts and are combined with DDR3-1600 memory.
The lower power consumption of the U processor is also made possible due to a clocked down graphics unit, which runs at 350 MHz/1000 MHz, versus 650 MHz/1000 MHz in the mainstream versions. All new Celeron processors are dual-core models without support for Hyper-Threading.
Prices are unknown at this time, but expect them to land in the same neighborhood as the current 800/B800 series, which spans from $80 to $134 for the dual-core models.
