Intel is retiring the Pentium and Celeron processor families, which are at the lower end of its in-house portfolio, and are focusing more on the top-rated premium brands Core, Evo, and vPro. From 2023, the manufacturer will gradually place an “Intel processor” below the Core i series.
Intel processor replaces Pentium and Celeron
For “core” areas of application, Intel has planned an “Intel Processor” – the “Intel Processor” – starting in 2023, starting with its lineup of laptops and 2-in-1s, intended to replace the Pentium and Celeron brands and below the Core i3 and Core i5, Core i7 and Core i9. Mobile client platforms, which will be standardized in accordance with this procedure, will not be considered with Pentium and Celeron CPUs starting from the next product year of 2023.
Today, Intel introduces a new processor for the core product space: the Intel processor. The new offering will replace the Intel Pentium and Intel Celeron brands in the 2023 laptop lineup.
Processors and systems-on-chip (SoCs) from different product families, formerly categorized as Pentium or Celeron, will then be combined and offered under the “Intel Processor” brand.
As announced by Intel, processors already released and CPUs already on public roadmaps are not affected by this measure.
The manufacturer has not yet answered whether desktop Pentium and Celeron processors will follow the example of mobile branches. However, it can be assumed that the entire range of products will depend on the new terminology of processors in the medium term.
Much is still not clear
Intel hasn’t revealed exactly what the naming of the different models will look like. The manufacturer only disclosed the reason for this action, to be able to more easily find the right CPU for your desired use case.
