The Intel Pentium and Celeron brands are ending and disappearing from the mobile sphere

In 1993 they were introduced Intel Pentium and they became the new significantly more powerful models that almost everyone wanted to have at home instead of older generations such as the 486, 386 and others. Later, low-end versions were also introduced Celeron, which usually ran on a slower FSB bus and also featured a smaller cache memory capacity. For a long time, Intel Pentium processors were the best on the market (AMD, however, managed to beat the price-performance ratio), which began to change with the Pentium 4, which, although it reached high clocks, was not always very efficient with them (some instructions took a huge number of clocks , which given the high frequency could mean surprisingly low power). AMD fought relatively successfully first with its Athlons XP, but especially later with the Athlons 64, better starting the era of multi-core processors.

But both brands gradually turned their former flagships into low-end models. In Intel’s case, the Pentium became it in 2006 with the introduction of the Core architecture. Pentia has all but disappeared from the scene since then, a trend that will deepen from next year.

Both Pentium and the Celeron label will disappear from the market, at least as far as the mobile versions of these processors are concerned. Intel wants to simplify naming and purchasing new devices for its customers. He does not intend to bother them further with these processor lines, and they will be named simply (but also ambiguously at the same time) Intel Processor. Low-end models will bear this designation, and the question is whether instead of simplification, we will not see even greater confusion, when everything “that could not fit elsewhere” might be hidden under the Intel Processor. It is not yet clear how the desktop variants of Pentiums and Celerons, which have not been discussed for the time being, will fare further, and it is a question of whether (and possibly when) they will also disappear from the scene.
