Intel has pushed the 22nm microarchitecture Ivy Bridge down into the budget line of processors. Launching seven new CPUs, Intel has finally transitioned the Celeron line from the older Sandy Bridge architecture to the latest and greatest. However, this transition comes just a few months before the release of Intel's next architecture, Haswell.

With the change, performance of these lines are improved. All of the new chips feature two cores and two threads, save for the new Core i3-3210, which features 4 threads via HyperThreading. Prices for the new chips start at $42 and run all the way up to $117 for the Core i3 model.

All of the processors are supported by existing LGA 1155 motherboards. If you're in need of a new budget CPU, Intel now has you covered with the latest architecture, though it won't remain the latest for much longer.
