Intel to phase out Celeron CPU’s in 2011

Intel has recently told their notebook partners that they plan to reduce the production of Celeron CPU’s and will replace this range with Pentium and dual core Atom N processors.

This is going to take place in 2011 according to sources in the Far East. This would tie in with Intel’s plans to release Atom N processors in the third quarter of 2010 as they will not want competiting products within their own ranges.

The Atom N processors are due to be priced in accordance with current Celeron chips.

KitGuru says: Are you glad to see the end of the budget ‘Celeron’ name?
