Intel adds Celeron G460 to its Processor Offer

As 2011 is drawing to a close Intel is keeping it light with new releases. So light that that the latest update to its processor line-up brings just one new chip, the entry-level Celeron G460. The G460 is made on 32nm process technology and features one core clocked at 1.8 GHz, two threads, 1.5MB of cache, integrated Intel HD Graphics, and a TDP of 35W.

The Celeron G460 costs $37 (pricing is for 1,000-unit tray quantities) which means it shares a price point with the 1.6 GHz Celeron G440.

From what I understand, it's the first Celeron to have Hyper-Threading support. And Intel has been making 1c/2t Atoms for a while, and will continue to do so for some time.

The G440 does everything a basic computer needs to do, even without hyper-threading. This G460 with hyperthreading and a clock boost is a nice addition. And all in a 35w TDP.

Honestly, for office PCs that are just going to be stuck under a desk so people can check their emails, write up word documents, and watch youtube videos, do you need anything more?

I'm just disappointed we can't overclock them...

im still using an old pentium m 1.7 in my laptop and it does everything i im do on the laptop just fine with the exception of gaming and video conversion. im sure this "celeron" would be more capable im im guessing its based on the same tech as the newer core series.

sure it can be overclocked... just not by the multi

Yes, it is a Sandybridge i3 Dual-Core with one of the cores and 2MB of L3 disabled.

With the BCLk essentially locked, it really can't be overclocked.(more than ~5%, which isn't even worth mentioning, IMO). I want 100% overclocks on minimal air cooling like celerons of old...:laugh:
