Celeron 1007u: mobile IVB alternative to the Celeron 847

Post by Jay_S » Mon Jun 10, 2013 9:36 am

Celeron 1007u
http://ark.intel.com/products/72061/
2 Cores @ 1.5 GHz, 17w TDP, no HT

I do not (and likely will not) own one, but those looking at the Celeron 847 boards might be interested.

The Gigabyte GA-C1007UN-D is readily available in the US:
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/produc ... id=4497#ov

At a glance, the GA-C1007UN-D is identical to Gigabyte's 847-based GA-C847N-D (except for the CPU)

Newegg, for reasons unknown, catalogs the GA-C1007UN-D under "Intel Motherboards" instead of "Motherboard / CPU / VGA Combo" with the GA-C847N-D.

The 1007u board *is* more expensive than the 847 boards, especially when the 847's are frequently on sale. All of these mobile Celeron boards confuse me - why no DC-in? They're perfect candidates.

That makes it sound like it's 4 threads in total, but those don't support HT so it's really 1 thread per core (2 in total).

Sounds like a better alternative indeed, at least with current newegg prices for the 10$ difference you get about a 45% performance increase (not just cpu but graphics too). Your newegg link for the 847 is wrong though here's the correct one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813128585
Should make Kabini's life harder when it will finally appear :-)
FWIW there's also 1037U and 1017U Celerons (1.8Ghz and 1.6Ghz otherwise the same) but I'm not sure they are available somewhere, and more important what intel charges for them. Yes they all have the same list price but I really wonder what intel actually charges for them (that 847 has a list price twice as high for just the cpu than what newegg charges for the whole gigabyte board...).

You're right, poor wording on my part.

Ack - errors all over the place! First post updated. Thanks.

For DIY market, it's more difficult or expensive to find a quality DC unit like Pico. Instead, ATX PSU availability is a lot better, pricing is more affordable for DIYers. Just my 2 cents.

We may be talking about two different things... I think you are contrasting regular PSUs with the Pico PSU, both of which still require the appropriate jacks on a motherboard.

Instead, I would like to see these ULV mobile celeron boards come with DC-in jacks instead of the standard 20/24-pin ATX and 4/8-pin CPU motherboard jacks. Similar to Intel's thin ITX boards (Intel's DH61AG, for example). If only to reduce cable "spaghetti" in tiny chassis.
