Intel To Support Cheap Ultrabooks With Low-Cost Celerons

According to Digitimes, the company will soon be offering two ultra-low voltage Celerons that could be used as CPUs for cheaper compact notebooks. The Celeron ULV 877 and 807 will reportedly be sold for $86 and $70 respectively.

Meanwhile, Intel is planning the second wave of Ivy Bridge processors, set to land on June 3, according to Digitimes. The new lineup will include the quad-core CPUs Core i5-3570, i5-3470, i5-3570S, and i5-3475S for desktop applications with prices ranging from $184 to $205.

There will be one new dual-core desktop chip (i5-3470T, $184), two new notebook CPUs (i7-3520M, i5-3360M and i5-3320M for $346, $266 and $225, respectively), as well as the Core i7-3367M and i5-3427M for Ultrabooks ($346 and $225).

    Why are they calling a Sandy Bridge CPU a Celeron. It's basically an i3 dual core, but for an ultrabook. Call it i1 or Pentium instead of Celeron. Anything to avoid the bad reputation that the Celeron has.

    lmao.
    a cheap ultrabook with celeron cpu is a netbook, period. i hope people don't buy into 'cheap ultrabook' BS. a decent low end netbook would be ivb pentium with hd4000 igpu.
    intel is so scared of trinity..... ;D

    Intel is doing this to counter the cheap AMD sleekbooks that are going to launch soon with the new trinity APUs. We all al know that will win the gpu race, but ti will interesting to see if a crippled ivy bridge will still against piledriver.
