Ivy Bridge celerons (finally) released

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
The G550's are popular here and now they've been replaced by the 55w G1610, which as a bonus supports DDR3 1333MHz straight away. I am uncertain what has changed GPU wise but the price is basically the same.

I believe the iGPU is the HD2500 from what I have read.

I use the HD2000 each and every day.

Almost the same as Intel HD Graphics 2500, but the following features are disabled:

- Quick Sync encoder
- 3D (Frame packing)
- Wireless Display
- Clear Video HD Technology (i.e. Skin Tone Enhancement and Adaptive Contrast Enhancement)

So then its not the same but still acceptable for a budget build

This looks like what they disabled in HD 2000 for SandyBridge.

Any idea how the SandyBridge Celeron/Pentium GPU compares to the IvyBridge Celeron/Pentium GPU?

This is great. I would love to see how this performs on Win8 Netflix app...
Also, if it beats my old 1st gen i3.

Personally, I am waiting until the G1630 comes out because it's 10 faster than the G1620 and 20 faster than the G1610

Do you mean the Sandy Bridge Celeron? My i7-2600 has HD2000 graphics and Quick Sync and Adaptive Contrast both work fine.

As for PQ under DXVA2 (i.e. Intel driver's own video post processing algorithms),

SNB Celeron = SNB Pentium = SNB Core i3/i5/i7 = IVB Celeron = IVB Pentium = IVB Core i3/i5/i7 (exactly identical),

(unless you turn on Skin Tone Enhancement or Adaptive Contrast Enhancement, that are available only with SNB/IVB Core i3/i5/i7).

What's the big advantage in the ivy ? The GPU ?

32nm -> 22nm

More performance for the same power draw, or less power required for the same performance

Renethx had a note about a 20% increase performance wise during his tests, but it was in a long-lost thread

So are some new Pentiums

Went for this today

My I5-650 is getting a bit long in the tooth

Got to figure most people don't use that stuff anyways.

So are they going to put out the equivalent of the celeron 847 only 22nm part?
