Intel has unveiled two new ultra-low voltage laptop processors – the single-core Celeron 787 and dual-core Celeron 857.
Designed for use in entry-level small and thin notebooks, the new “Sandy Bridge”-based 32nm Celerons have a maximal thermal design power of 17W.
The Celeron 787 is clocked at 1.3GHz. It has 1.5MB of L3 cache and a graphics’ maximal dynamic frequency of 950MHz. The single core chip has a recommended channel price of $107.
On the other side, the 1.2GHz dual-core Celeron 857 features 2MB L3 cache and maximal GPU frequency of 1GHz. It’s priced at $134.
Since the 787 and 857 are budget chips, they don’t have advanced “Sandy Bridge” features, such as Intel Turbo Boost and vPro. Also, the CPUs don’t support HyperThreading, but are capable of 64-bit computing and virtualization.
Although the processors are listed on Intel’s website in mid-July, we were not able to find any notebook with these parts on the US market at the time of this writing.
