This is necessary. They need Celeron to close the lower end of the market. With the onslaught from ARM and other brands, Intel needs all the swagger they can get.

I think its a very good move by Intel because lower end of the notebook market has got huge potential in developing markets. Contrary to popular belief that its end of PC/Notebook era, Intel is prooving that there is still huge market for low end PC/Notebook.

Intel is reviving the Celeron series that I think it is confusing the customers on the performances of its CPUs. Is the dual core Celeron faster in performance and lower in power usage than Core i3 or the Pentium series? Intel needs to do a better job in educating the customers on all these CPU choices. Just my two cents.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
