EE Times reports Intel will reveal new Celeron processors for laptops in Q1 2012 and in Q4 2012:
According to specs obtained by CPU World, the refresh will include a 1.6GHz dual core processor called the B815, able to handle two threads and sporting a TDP of 35W. The B815 would switch out the current B810 model and add improved graphics frequency of 1050MHz over the current generation’s 950MHz.
Intel will also be refreshing its B710 Celeron chip with a new B720 single core, a rarity in today’s multi-core world. The chip apparently won’t be capable of hyper threading, making it an especially low-end offering.
The chip maker will complete the lineup with two ultra-low voltage Celerons - the ULV 867 and ULV 797. The ULV 867 is purportedly a dual core 1.3GHZ chip, while the ULV 797 is single core with 1.4GHz clock speed. Both would have a TDP of just 17W.
