Sandy Bridge Celeron coming in Q3 2011

Written by Fuad Abazovic

$49.99 and up for dual core with graphics
It looks like Pentium won’t be the last stop for Sandy Bridge based 32nm chips. Intel has just revealed to its special few that it plans to make Celeron CPUs based on this new upcoming core, but they will only come in Q3 2011.

This will be a dual-core Celeron and we are we believe that the graphics part of the chip will still end up enabled. As far as we know there won't be any chipset with graphics so the only integrated non-discrete graphics choice is the GPU inside of the Sandy Bridge.

Sandy Bridge will start in the Legacy L1 market segment it it should be available for $49.99 and of course it will get available in faster iteration that will require more money.

Intel still doesn’t talk about the specification of these future Celeron but this will be quite a technology leap as the current Celeron E3300 and E3400 are based on 45nm Wolfdale dual-core with 1MB of cache while the new Celerons of Q3 2011 will have a dual core 32nm with monolithic design.

We do need to remind you that Intel’s product roadmap is constantly evolving and Intel tends to change it on a regular basis, as it usually with future developments several quarters away.

I don't even want to think about how piss-poor this will be, but I pity the poor saps who end up buying it.

Why? Ever since Core 2, Celerons have been pretty decent. Current models offer perfectly acceptable performance, and Sandy-Bridge-based Celerons are bound to be better.

You may get better value from an Athlon II X2, but that doesn't mean Celerons suck per se.

$49.99 for dual core and graphics says it all. Intel sells atoms for more, and we all know how good they are..nt.

Their current price list has the following entry:
E3300 (1M L2 cache, 2 Cores, 2 Threads, 2.50 GHz 800 MHz FSB 45nm) $43

Wanna bet that what they offer next year for $6.99 more will be better?

That's a different market segment so Intel plays by different rules.

"High-end" Atoms, if any Atom can be called that, have always been overpriced. Even the run of the mill models are pricey compared to regular desktop parts, the price/performance ratio is pretty bad despite their relatively low prices.

Hopefully it will handle 7.1 audio and HD video. It might be perfect for us HTPC people. We really don't need much cpu power, but we need the graphics to handle HDMI and 7.1 HDMI audio. I mean a dual core atom with acceptable video acceleration and 7.1 HDMI would work, but the mobos are way to stripped down.
