Intel silently releases new mobile Celeron CPUs

Intel has silently updated their website with four new Celeron processors. The new CPUs are based on the Sandy Bridge architecture and are targeted at the low-end / budget market. The CPUs with typenumbers 807 (1.5 Ghz), 877 (1.4 Ghz), B730 (1.8 Ghz) and B820 (1.7 Ghz) all have onboard Intel HD Graphics and support Intel 64, VT-x virtualization, and SIMD instructions up to SSE4.

The 807 and 887 are suitable for thin and light laptops, while the B730 and B820 will likely end up in cheap mainstream laptops. The 807 and B730 are single cores with HyperThreading and the 877 and B820 are dualcores without HyperThreading. The 807 and 877 have graphic chips that run on 350Mhz which can be boosted up to 1000Mhz. The B730 and B820 on chip GPUs are clocked at 650Mhz and can be boosted up to 1050Mhz.

The 807 and 877  use a BGA socket and have a TDP of 17 Watt, the B730 and B820 have a TDP of 35 Watt and fit in a G2 socket.

The CPU’s are about 35% cheaper than their predecessors, the Celeron 807 and 877 will cost $70, the B730 and B820 are slighty more expensive at $86, these are distributor prices and only valid when you take 1000 or more.
