Are they mad ?

Single core in 2011/12 ... They can stuff it where the sun doesn't shine.

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:
