Intel Processor: a new product name for its low-tier mobile CPUs
The Processor will replace Celeron and Pentium in 2023 laptop CPUs.
A farewell to Celeron and Pentium. The company is making a ‘small’ adjustment to its product names moving forward. The company will now stop using both well-known brands for its next-generation laptops.
Intel will continue to use Core, Evo and vPro Processor brands alongside this new product name. This is an effort to streamline the product stack and probably a result of core counts going progressively higher.
It is presently unclear how individual SKU names or CPU architecture will be differentiated under the new “Intel Processor” product stack. This should become clear as soon as the first new low-end laptop CPUs are released.
Intel’s announcement comes just a week after AMD revealed its new Ryzen product naming for 2023 and beyond. This update also affects only mobile processors.
