Intel’s Skylake Celerons will have two cores

After launching most SKUs of the Skylake CPU generation in the past few months – Core i7, Core i5, Core i3 and Pentium processors, very soon Intel will launch what’s remaining of this generation – Celeron chips on the Skylake architecture. Don’t be too happy, though – the new Celerons will not bring much.

Intel will introduce just three Celeron models – G3900, G3900T and G3920. The chips will resemble Celerons of previous generations – the newcomers will have just two processing cores, 2 MB of L3 cache and Intel HD 510 graphics on-board. As expected the Skylake Celerons will not support Hyper-Threading technology and Intel’s Turbo Boost technology. You’ll get just basic Celeron cores but with the Skylake architecture and somewhat improved iGPU performance. The Intel Celeron G3900 will run at 2.8 GHz, while the G3920 model will be a bit faster at 2.9 GHz. Both processors will have TDP of 47 watts. The Celeron G3900T will run at 2.6 GHz and will sport lowered power consumption, which will allow for lower TDP levels of just 35 watts. All new Celeron chips will support DDR3L or DDR4-2133 memory.

In regards to pricing the G3900 will sell for USD 48.26, while the G3920 will cost USD 57.75. There’s no information on the price of the G3900T as of now.
