A few days ago, we reported that Intel plans to update its processor lineup with a series of new low-cost Celeron chips, namely the G460 and 807UE, which were just made official by the Santa Clara-based company.
The CPUs were spotted by the CPU-World
publication and both of these pack at least one unique feature that makes them stand out from the rest of Intel’s
In the case of the G460 this special feature is the chip’ support for the Hyper-Threading technology, thus becoming the first Celeron CPU to include this option, while the 807UE comes with an ultra-low power design that enables it to fit into a 10W TDP.
As far as the rest of the specs are concerned, the Celeron 807UE packs a single processing core clocked at 1GHz which is seconded by 1MB of Level 3 cache.
The integrated graphics
has a base frequency of 350MHz, but thanks to the Turbo Boost technology can go up to 800MHz when the need arises.
Moving to the Celeron G460, this also includes a single processing core, but this time this is backed by 1.5MB of cache memory and works at 1.8GHz.
The rest of the CPU’s features are identical with those of the Celeron G440 it’s meant to replace, coming with an integrated dual-channel DDR3-1066 memory controller and 650/1000MHz graphics clock, outside of its newly found Hyper-Threading support.
Thermal Design Power (TDP) for the Celeron G460 is set at 35W, while the recommended price was established at $37 US (roughly 27.5 EUR), which makes it just a tad less expensive than the dual-core 2.4GHz Celeron G530.
Pricing for the 807UE was not disclosed as the CPU
will only be available in the OEM space, but this should come as a great alternative to Intel’s Atom D2000-series processors.
