Take basic computing to new levels with the Intel Celeron processor single-core. Based on energy-efficient Sandy Bridge microarchitecture, the Intel Celeron processor G440 delivers superior energy-efficient single-core performance. It includes integrated graphics for a sunning and seamless visual PC experience with no discrete graphics card required.

  • newegg Sandy Bridge Based Single-core Processing The Intel Celeron G440 processor includes one execution core at 1.6 GHz to provide basic computing performance at a low TDP of 35W. The innovative 32nm fabrication technology optimizes thermal performance for reduced power consumption and noise.
  • newegg Intel HD Graphics Intel HD Graphics with dynamic frequency up to 1GHz and Intel Clear Video HD Technology delivers smooth HD video playback and mainstream 3D gaming without the need for add-in video cards or decoders. It also supports a wide range of display connectivity options and is dual display capable.
  • newegg Integrated Memory Controller The Integrated Memory Controller optimizes data bandwidth with two channels, offering stunning memory read/write performance through efficient pre-fetching algorithms, lower latency, and higher memory bandwidth.
  • newegg Intel Smart Cache Intel Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Intel Virtualization Technology Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC. By abstracting the software away from the underlying hardware, a world of new usage models opens up that reduce costs, increase management efficiency, strengthen security, while making your computing infrastructure more resilient in the event of a disaster.
  • newegg Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology is an advanced means of enabling very high performance while also meeting the power-conservation needs of mobile systems. Conventional Intel SpeedStep Technology switches both voltage and frequency in tandem between high and low levels in response to processor load.

3 out of 5 eggsOnly for certain Market niches

Pros: Consumes next to nothing in terms of power, maxing out at 15 watts.

Destroys Dual Core Atom processors and anything on the smartphone market right now.

Integrated video can play 1080p youtube and Blu-ray.
(With at least 3gb of RAM, that is.)

Excellent for installing older Os'es that don't recognize dual-cores. (For whatever reason.)

-As an example, Windows 98 (Becuase some people love it.)

This processor performs beyond any of the old Celeron Ds and Pentium 4s in
terms of performance, and some of the Pentium D's, and even then, the power consumption makes this a great PC for putting that old XP install on, or Win95/98/ME (Why you'd want to use Windows ME is anybody's guess. ) for nostalgia value.

-Splendid as a low power server/hardware firewall

-Will not burn out any PSU on the market due to insanely low power consumption. (Unless the PSU came DOA, that is.)

Also excellent for Dosbox/virtual machines (Though I recommend the real deal.) and older emulators.

Cons: -Subpar performance by modern standards.

-The Celeron G530 costs $10 more and is much faster, due to having two cores and not having a crippled cache

- No hyperthreading.

-No EIST, so it won't use less power in idle

-Is outperformed by AMD's sempron as well.

-Integrated video is only capable of 1080p videos and not much else.

-Somewhat overpriced for the performance it gives
(Considering the price of the G530.)

-Becomes the bottleneck in games incredibly easily, even with a middle end GPU.

-Single threaded performance is even lower than Athlon 2.

-Has trouble with less amounts of RAM in newer Operating systems

-Clock locked.

- Has very little cache compared to the Celeron G530.

-Performs very poorly in Video Editing. (But you wouldn't buy it for this.)

-Performs poorly in high-end emulators (NullDC, Doplhin, PCSX2, etc.)

Many games nowadays REQUIRE Dual-cores to run, which adds even more hassle, so if you want to game, get the Celeron G530.

Other Thoughts: If you want to relive the past, or just need a low-power server/firewall, get this baby.

If you want an office PC, a low-end Gaming PC, or a HTPC, get the Celeron G530 or better. The higher Caches and better performance will be more than worth the $10.

If you just want to play pretend and live the good ole days without buying a brand new Pentium 4, this is the next best thing.

This thing plays older PC games such as Starcraft and Half-life very well even on the integrated graphics. It is also a great platform for indie games, but I'd recommend a nettop or a netbook/Ultrabook for those.

Some operating system's have trouble with Dual-cores even IF you disable one of them. This one only has one core and circumvents that problem.

So, as the title says, I'd only recommend this if you are:

-A collector

-An old OS enthusiast

-Need a low power server/firewall

-Need a development platform for older PC's


-You just love single cores.

Otherwise, steer towards

4 out of 5 eggsSuper atom smasher

Pros: Very quiet cpu fan, very low actual measured TDP, in the range of less than 14 watts. DirectX10 graphics under W7. W7 performance measure comparable to a 2700MUD atom or an E350 AMD, but gives twice the speed, a score of 2000 under Linuxes, with the peacekeeper benchmark.

Cons: Gosh golly, no speedstep, meaning it stays at one frequency. No "governor=conservative" kernel command lines in Linux, they don't work. If you want speedstep, you need to go to a 65-watt package. Which is ironic.

Other Thoughts: On the newer 1155 desktop boards, the latest bios has a "performance" section that lets you overclock the device. Not recommended, wait for the 23 nanometer celerons that will replace this one on the same board. Under any Linux with a libtheora, it runs ALL of the peacekeeper benchmark tests, especially with a google-chrome browser, yielding a peacekeeper score of around 2000, compared with atom boards with 800 to 1000 scores. I am using a 60-watt power brick connected to a DC2DC converter to run this toy.

5 out of 5 eggsActual Buyer / User

Pros: I've purchased two (2) of these processors so far from the Egg so I have experience with these CPUs for their intended purpose - a low-power desktop and an entry-level file server. They do their job well and with little electrical usage.

Cons: Not even for everyday desktops; keep in mind these are low-power CPUs.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what defines a spam review when 1) I buy these CPUs and 2) use/sell these CPUs (as I do everything else I review, often in bulk).
When you see a review from Dominance, you're getting real-world feedback. I'd say that's what everyone is looking for.

Pros: Awesome that every new 1155 cpu has a spam review from Dominance.

Cons: Awesome that every new 1155 cpu has a spam review from Dominance.

5 out of 5 eggsWelcome to the best price/performance file server CPU out there

Pros: Faster than an Atom, Bobcat, with similar power usage. Fits in LGA1155 socket so common use motherboards work fine.

Cons: Slow for typical desktop computer tasks but $10 more gets you three (3) times more speed with the next Celeron up.

Other Thoughts: I order these for simple file servers. Should last nearly forever at such low power usage.
