    Intel updated its product offer to OEMs with a new low-cost ultra-low voltage (ULV) processor, the Intel Celeron M 857. The chip is designed for use in ultra-portable notebooks. Built on the 32 nm processor node, this dual-core chip is clocked at 1.20 GHz, lacks HyperThreading, has 2 MB of shared L3 cache, dual-channel DDR3 IMC, and embedded graphics. The chip has a TDP of just 17W. Celeron M 857 has the same channel price as Celeron M 847, $134, which it displaces.

    There was a socket 1156 Clarkdale based Celeron. There will also be socket 1155 Sandy Bridge based Celerons out towards the end of this year.

    This is what the Pentium is for these days. Why continue the Celeron?

    How does it perform compared to the N550 which uses half the power and costs just over half?

    yea, i wonder how this'll fair against AMD's T-APU line. i mean 17watts compared to 4.5, plus a better GPU in the AMD chip. Personally thinking this'll suck...

    Why care about the name? Does the name somehow effect performance some way that I'm not aware of?

    Of course it does :nutkick: Have you seen a Processor with "Pentium" outgunning a processor with "Core i3" before? No? That is what I thought too. Obviously names matter. :roll:

    I see Red_machine's point though, Intel just need the Core iX names rather than still cling on the Pentium and Celeron. Just call them i1 for simplicity.
    Red_Machine says thanks.

    I agree. I think they should just drop all their past model names now.

    I would like to see a SOCKETED version of this for my ITX builds.

    It should exist in mobo+chip package like Brazos

    Laptop Processors are always a cut more expensive.

    personally looking at the better GPUs AMD offers and probably better CPUs in the APU too, also the price thingy, these will probably suck.

    hell i forgot AMD consumes lesser power too :D

    i hope angry birds works okay here, i was playing it on an i3 laptop, used alt+F4 and then had to restart it LOL.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you could take a G530 and underclock/undervolt it to pretty damn close to 17w.

    I can't help to agree. It would have to perform much better to be truly competitive at that wattage/price verses a processor at a similar price range that contains a reasonable gpu.

    Problem is this is Intel graphics we are talking about here. No competition for Bobcat.

    Intel graphics is fine for anything named "Farmville" and below. This processor is not aimed at your regular netbook with some multimedia (bobcat or ION), but rather people who wants something a step more powerful than Atom. Will not be surprised if this processor smashes Bobcat into a million pieces in anything other than graphics.

    Intel can't even do graphics for Farmville let alone Youtube on this Celeron.

    This one doesn't come with the run of the mill GPU like that of the HD2000/3000 order. This one only supports dual displays. Forget Quicksync, 3D, Clear Video, etc. The only thing it has going for it is the 1Ghz ceiling on the GPU clock. Though as Intel has yet to figure out that having a GPU clock all over the place is determinant to performance, I'm not expecting miracles.

    You right this is not going in to netbooks, but it is aimed at the ultra portable market which is one that Bobcat still has reign over until you get to the actual i-series processors or some of the faster Pentium Sandy Bridge series processors. I'd even take the new AMD A-series (once the dual cores show up) over any Sandy Bridge based Celeron or Pentium.
