Celeron Mobile Processors

Intel has used the name "Celeron" for its low-end desktop and mobile PC processors for more than a decade. Celeron mobile processors feature slower clock speeds, smaller memory caches, and front-side bus speeds than Pentium E-series processors; and, like them, are based on Core 2 Duo designs. Celeron mobile processors are available in five series: T3000, T1000, SU2000, 900, and 500. Ultra low-voltage (ULV) Celeron mobile processors are sometimes used in netbooks, providing vendors an alternative to Intel's Atom processor family.

Celeron T3000 Series

These processors are the fastest Celeron mobile processors currently available, and have the following features:

  • Two processor cores
  • 1MB cache size
  • Supports 64-bit operating systems and applications
  • 800MHz front side bus
  • 35 watts TDP
  • Based on "Penryn" architecture

Celeron T1000 Series

These processors have slower clock speeds and slower front side bus speeds than the Celeron T3000 series. This series has the following features:

  • Two processor cores
  • 1MB cache size
  • Supports 64-bit operating systems and applications
  • 667MHz front side bus
  • 35 watts TDP
  • Based on "Merom" architecture

Celeron T1000 Series

These processors have slower clock speeds and slower front side bus speeds than the Celeron T3000 series. This series has the following features:

  • Two processor cores
  • 1MB cache size
  • Supports 64-bit operating systems and applications
  • 667MHz front side bus
  • 35 watts TDP
  • Based on "Merom" architecture

Celeron SU2000 Series

This processor series combines modest clock speeds and very low power requirements with the fastest front side bus available in mobile Celerons, and also includes support for hardware virtualization. This series has the following features:

  • Two processor cores
  • 1MB cache size
  • Supports 64-bit operating systems and applications
  • Intel VT-x virtualization technology
  • 800MHz front side bus
  • 10 watts TDP
  • Based on "Penryn" architecture

Celeron 900 Series

This processor series is similar in features and performance to the Celeron T3300 series. It has the following features:

  • Two processor cores
  • 1MB cache size
  • Supports 64-bit operating systems and applications
  • 800MHz front side bus
  • 35 watts TDP
  • Based on "Penryn" architecture

To learn more, see Intel's ARK website: Celeron 900 Series Processor.

Celeron 500 and ULV 500 Series

This processor series features slower front side bus speeds than the Celeron T1000 series. It has the following features:

  • Two processor cores
  • 1MB cache size (ULV models have 512KB cache)
  • Supports 64-bit operating systems and applications
  • 667MHz or 533MHz front side bus (varies by model)
  • 27[nd]31 watts TDP (ULV models have 10 watts Max TDP)
  • Based on "Merom" architecture
