The optimized CPUs experience an increase in performance compared to their predecessors, which primarily results from an increased clock rate with the same TDP. A particularly economical entry-level model is the Celeron G1820 offered here for the 1150 socket.
Haswell Refresh buyers benefit most from the mainboards with the Z97 chipset at the top. Especially in the high-end area, board owners can look forward to highlights such as M.2 SSD slots or SATA Express connections, which can help their systems to achieve new levels of performance. The revised fourth generation CPUs can, however, also run on older circuit boards with a corresponding BIOS update.
Due to the C-States already known from Haswell, Intel also attaches great importance to maximum energy efficiency with the Haswell refresh. This ensures that the Celeron G1820 always moves within its TDP allocation of only 53 watts, provided it is not overclocked by the user. Thanks to its high performance, this should hardly be necessary anyway and is associated with the loss of the manufacturer's guarantee.
The Celeron G1820 has two cores that can fall back on 2 MB L3 cache and work with a clock rate of 2.7 GHz. The dual-core CPU supports common DDR3 memory with 1,333 MHz. If you want to use the integrated graphics unit *, the Celeron G1820 offers sufficient performance, because the processor has an internal Intel HD graphics unit, which ensures smooth image reproduction - apart from current games and high resolutions, of course.
This is the tray version of the processor. A CPU cooler is therefore not included in the scope of delivery.
* A compatible mainboard is required to use the integrated graphics unit.
