First Sandy Bridge-based Celeron Chip Now Shipping

Pulkit Chandna

The first notebooks featuring the latest, Sandy Bridge-based Intel Core processors are already out there. While the Sandy Bridge architecture clearly seems to be restricted to mid- to high-end notebooks at the moment, that might change pretty soon as the Santa Clara chip maker has begun shipping its first Sandy Bridge-based Celeron laptop processor, the dual-core B810, to OEMs .

Unsurprisingly, the B810  is by far Intel's cheapest Sandy Bridge processor with a 1000-unit price of $86 per CPU. The 1.6GHz processor has 2MB of L3 cache and a maximum TDP of 35W. However, as you'd expect, the dual-core processor lacks a lot of features common to many of the second-gen Core processors, including Turbo Boost, Hyper Threading and Quick Sync Video.
