The Celeron 857: 32 nm and a TDP of 17 W

Intel has released a new mobile Celeron, the Celeron 857 is a variation Sandy Bridge, which adds to the Celeron 847 introduced last June. The difference between the two is only at the operating frequency with a gap of 0.1 GHz. They are currently priced the same, but the 847 will soon fall. The Celeron 857 is clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1.1 GHz against the Celeron 847.

It has two cores, a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller, 2 MB L3 cache, a chipset capable of decoding video streams, but that does not support Quick Sync and Clear Video HD. For the record, Quick Sync is a unique circuit in Sandy Bridge, which is dedicated solely to video.

The Clear HD Video optimizes the rendering, color and sharpness of images. One of the main strengths of the Celeron 857 has a TDP of only 17 W and the price of $ 134 for a quantity of one thousand units. It is designed for netbooks and embedded market. It uses a Socket BGA1023 which, unlike the usual LGA, means that the processor is soldered to the motherboard.
