    By early 2013, Intel's "Ivy Bridge" micro-architecture will have finally trickled down to the most-affordable (and one of the largest) market-segments. The company is planning to launch three new Celeron socket LGA1155 processor models based on the 22 nm "Ivy Bridge" silicon. The three include the class-leading Celeron G1620, affordable Celeron G1610, and its energy-efficient variant, the Celeron G1610T. The three are dual-core chips that lack HyperThreading, and are configured with 2 MB of L3 cache, DDR3-1333 MHz memory clock limit, and 650 MHz iGPU clock.

    The Celeron G1610 is the most affordable of the three, it is clocked at 2.60 GHz, with a TDP of 55W. The Celeron G1620 is the fastest among the three, with 2.70 GHz clock speed, and the same 55W TDP. The Celeron G1610T achieves a TDP of just 35W, with a significantly lower clock speed of 2.30 GHz. The three will occupy sub-$100 price-points. The three will by compatible with current 6-series and 7-series chipset-based socket LGA1155 motherboards.

    The G1610 and G1620 look like an excellent replacement for the G620\G630 too bad people won't buy em becuase they are "celerons"... what a shame...

    You haven't heard maybe. SB Celerons were released last year and also refreshed this year. Intel is just lagging with low end IB CPUs.

    If i remember correctly, intel DOES plan on letting the Celeron branding go and just stick with Pentium\i3\i5\i7, I donno what's going on with that

    We still have Celeron/Pentium/i3/i5/i7 lineup system, Celerons are for bargain basement parts which is not very cost efficient, then we have the Pentiums which are just about cost efficient if you cheap out on everything, i3 are very good value but lacking in raw multicore processing, i5 for your power users and finally i7 for those who wants absolutely every last bit of processing power.

    Current problem of IVB Pentiums is the lack of cheap motherboard to pair up with them.

    The i3 does more than just turn on, which means it has features that Intel can strip away! Intel can strip away Hyper-Threading, HD Graphics 2500/4000, lower the clock-speed, and call it a Celeron, thus pricing the i3 higher without giving up competing with AMD's E2/A4(low-end) lineup. So, they've managed a dual-core lineup that competes with the lowliest CPUs from AMD (but nothing more unless you'll pay more). Never waste a feature, they aren't there to look pretty or fill some spec sheet, they're there to be charged a premium for.

    I would love to see mobile 22nm celerons with HD4000 = dirt cheap, low power and even abel to run some games.

    We all wish. I guess we have APUs for that.

    APU is just AMD's marketing name for CPUs with IGP.

    People think these chips are slow when they see celeron but they have no clue. I had the LOWEST Celeron SB single core and it out benched the highest Athlon X2 / Core2Duo in games with a 5850. These chips are worth the 40 some odd $'s and if you want a cheap budget gamer with a discrete card then this is a great choice.

    Intel G1610 = around 75$ ( B75 mATZ = Around 55$
    2x4GB DDR3 = 35$
    Nvidia 650 TI = 150$

    decent gamer!

    They're not really compelled to.

    I don't like the Celeron name, reminds me of super low end junk

    It still is, but only in relation to the good stuff we get now. Compare them to things we get 5 years ago, its bloody good for the money, and 5 years old rig can still do almost all tasks efficiently.
