Ivy Bridge Celerons in Q1 2013

Written by Fuad Abazovic



22nm, up to 2.7GHz clock


Intel thinks that G555 and G550 Celerons clocked at 2.7GHz and 2.6GHz respectively won’t be enough to ensure dominance in this market segment in 2013 and therefore the outfit plans two new Celeron processors based on the new Ivy Bridge core.

The replacement for fastest available Celeron to date, the G555 is called G1620 and it runs at the same 2.7GHz core clock. The rest of the specification is also hardly impressive as the Celeron G1620 has 2MB of cache, two cores and two threads just like the old Celeron. The memory supported on the new Celeron jumped to 1333MHz instead of 1066MHz for the G555 and HD graphics work at 650/1050MHz.

Since this is a brand new graphics core even at 650MHz base clock it might have a chance at being significantly faster than the previous Celeron G555 in graphics application, mainly casual games.  The TDP remains at the same 55W and the memory controller supports two-channel memory.

The replacement for G550 Celeron clocked at 2.6GHz and based on Sandy Bridge is Celeron G1610 clocked at the same 2.6GHz with 2MB memory two cores and two threads and memory at 1333MHz. This processor is simply 100 MHz slower than the G1620 and everything else remains the same. The third member of the Celeron family the Celeron G1610T is a 2.3GHz clocked Ivy bridge based with 2MB cache and two cores and two threads but despite its 650 to 1050MHz graphics it can comfortably fit in a 35W TDP envelope.

Let me remind you again that Ivy Bridge based cores including these three Celerons are manufactured in 22nm. The scheduled launch timeframe is Q1 2013 and until then Celeron G555 based on 32nm Sandy Bridge remains the market leader in the Celeron V2 segment.
