Intel Celeron G3900, , G3920 and G3900T

In the Intel’s launch strategy, the fastest processors in a line up are released first to get buzz word out. The enthusiasts, over clockers are handed over the samples of the fastest parts that are potentially overclockable. And everyone is filled with wow effect. When the euphoria dies, Intel pushes out the slow Pentiums and Celerons, in the $50 to $100 range that possibly makes up more sale in terms of volume.

The Celeron Chips are the cheapest and slowest in the line up, but certainly not unusable. Intelligent gamers know that the raw GPU power and not the CPU power is the key. For most of the entry level office works, even Celerons are more than enough. In the light of this, it is worth while to go through the list of the Celeron processors that we can see today. We see fastest Celeron G3920 along with G3900 and the “thermally efficient” G3900T and at this time.

Comparison with Haswell equivalent

In January 2014, Intel had first launch of the Celeron Haswell processors G1820, G1830 and G1820T.

Core Frequency 2.70 GHz 2.80 GHz 2.40 GHz
No. Of Cores / Threads

Lithography 22 nm 22 nm 22 nm
Integrated Memory Controller DDR3 DDR3 DDR3
Integrated Graphics HD Graphics ( 10 EU) HD Graphics (10 EU) HD Graphics ( 10 EU)

If you look at the first launch of the Skylake, we have higher launch clock frequency ( by 100 MHz). Between Haswell and Skylake Intel also improved its process from 22 nm to 14 nm and the first visible improvement is in the TDP rating from 53 Watts to 47 Watts. The clock frequencies match the second launch of the Haswell Celerons in May 2014 when the clock frequencies were bumped up.

If you see the Skylake Celerons, the clock frequencies match the second launch of the Haswell Celerons.

Performance Predictions

We have seen it at more than one places, that, for the same clock frequency the Skylake is 1.5% faster than the Haswell. We therefore conclude that the Skylake G3900 is a tad faster ( close to 1.5%) than the Haswell G1840, both being at 2.8 GHz. The same thing applies to Skylake G3920 versus
Haswell Celeron G1850 and the G3900T versus G1840T. This is in addition to slight gain in the power performance.

Of course, the Skylake comes with a different chipset and requires a newer motherboard.

    Nice sum up. More than the processor core and frequency, the software, ad ware, trojans that suck the computer performance.
