Intel Celeron Dual-Core Logo – As the Celeron dual-core called Intel a family of dual core processors (dual core), as the most cost-effective processors are placed. It is the successor to the Intel Celeron (Core) , the first dual-core processor family of low-priced.
Like its predecessor, with only one core and the multi-core processors are based on the Intel Core microarchitecture, only a fraction of the L2 cache of more expensive processors. The Celeron is for 775 offered, based on the Intel Core microarchitecture , supporting Intel 64 . It also supports the processor family, the energy saving feature EIST , which in previous Celeron processors has been disabled.
From the 5th August 2011 there Celeron-G models for the socket 1155 , based on the Sandy Bridge architecture. They have the same processor core as the Core i3 processors on the same architecture and also have an integrated graphics processor in the chip. However, they have no SMT / Hyper-Threading , are clocked slower, have less cache and lacks the new instruction set extension AVX , which was introduced with “Sandy Bridge” in-core i-processors. Also, the graphics unit has lost all of their additional features, the Celeron. Thus, there is Intel’s “Quick Sync” technology, which encode for fast video can be used with certain codecs. The decoding functions have been restricted so that the “Clear Video HD” technology and “InTru 3D” technology is not usable.
