The skinny is now available on Intel's upcoming Celeron CPUs which will be Sandy Bridge-powered. The new Celeron's come in multiple flavors, a single-core Celeron G440, a dual-core Celeron G530 and a Celeron G540. The new Celeron's don't feature Intel's HyperThreading or CPU Turbo Boost technologies, they also run at low clock speeds and have just 2MB of L3 cache enabled.
