So long Celeron, pack it in Pentium: Intel drops budget CPU labels

14 days ago   |   By PC World

Intel first debuted the Pentium brand name almost 30 years ago, and the Celeron range of CPUs about 25 years ago. Since the rise of the Core series in 2006, they've both been assigned to low-cost budget CPUs, often featured on budget laptops and desktops. As of 2023, they're both disappearing: Intel's low-end laptop offerings will simply be labeled “Intel Processor” with a new iteration of the Intel Inside logo.
Intel's press release notes that this is purely a branding move, and it doesn't affect any of the actual hardware development. The decision, quote, “leaves unchanged Intel's...

Intel drops the Celeron and Pentium names for its low-end laptop CPUs

14 days ago   |   By Engadget

Intel has used the Celeron and Pentium brands for CPUs since the 1990s, but they're finally fading away - if not quite in the way you'd expect. The company is replacing both brand names for low-end laptop chips in favor of the simpler "Intel Processor" badge starting in 2023. The move will help "simplify" the lineup, Intel VP Josh Newman said. The Core, Evo and vPro labels will stick around. Intel didn't say how it will handle branding for desktop processors, which still include Celeron and Pentium models released this year. We've asked the company for comment and will let you know if we...

Intel to retire Celeron and Pentium brands for 2023 notebook chips

14 days ago   |   By Liliputing

Intel is rebranding its entry-level laptop chips. Starting with the company's 2023 processor lineup, you won't find any more chips with Celeron or Pentium branding.

Wave goodbye to Celeron and Pentium - and say hello to the new Intel Processor

14 days ago   |   By TechRadar

Intel is simplifying the branding for its lower-end CPUs for laptops, with the Pentium and Celeron brands to be retired as of the start of next year. So what will replace these veteran brands, which have been around since the nineties? The new family of Intel's baseline CPUs will be called Intel Processor. That means wallet-friendly chips will be Intel Processor, and the mainstream offerings will remain Intel Core, with Intel vPro as the pro-targeted CPUs, as is the case now. The Intel Evo certification will also remain as a guide to quality in the laptop world. The Pentium and Celeron...
