Intel’s latest Skylake parts has been rolling out for months in the market with their high-end parts, the Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i5 SKUs. Now the entry level Intel Skylake processors, the Intel Celeron has been made available for reservations in certain countries.

The Celeron parts features dual-core and dual-threaded with neither Turbo Boost nor unlocked chip. The Intel Celeron part range from the Intel Celeron G3920 clocked at 2.9GHz, Intel Celeron G3900 clocked at 2.8GHz and all the way up to the Intel Celeron G3900T clocked at 2.6GHz. The clock speeds are just a minor bump up from the previous generation Haswell parts.


As it is poised as the lowest end part in the family, the latest Intel Celeron will features a low-end integrated graphic unit as well, the HD 510, unlike the Intel Pentium range which will rely on the HD 530 for graphics acceleration. We have no data on the HD 510 but as the following comparison suggests that the Intel HD 530 is almost the same as the Nvidia GT840M, the Intel HD 510 shouldn’t be that bad.


The Skylake Intel Celeron will sport 2MB of L3 cache and support DDR4 DIMM memory up to 2133Mhz. As low-end chips, the TDP is pretty low around the range of 35W to 47W, you will never have to worry about the heat output or power consumption of these CPUs.


For now there is no information about the sure-to-come-but-not-sure-when Skylake Intel Pentium and Intel Core i3 parts but there are some rumors that both ranges will have five chips each. Links provided below for the chip that I expect to hit the market below.

Intel Pentium G4400, Intel Pentium G4500, Intel Pentium G4520, for the Intel Pentium line-up the Intel Pentium G4400 is the best for buck.
Intel Core i3 6100, Intel Core i3 6300, Intel Core i3 6320, and of course the Intel Core i3 6100 is the sweet spot.




Pokdepinion : I don’t expect the Skylake Intel Celeron to be hitting our Malaysian market, but the Intel Pentium and the Intel Core i3 should arrive in Malaysian stores after the prices of DDR4 modules gradually become more and more stable and affordable.
