No more Pentium and Celeron next year, Intel says

Pentium and Celeron has been a household name since like, a long ago. But Intel just announced that they’re pulling the plug on these two well-known CPU’s.

Is this an official retirement for the old CPU’s or just retiring of the names, kinda like when a basketball player retires, he/she retires their number also.

Let’s take a trip down to memory lane: Pentium is synonymous to hardcore gaming…in the year 2000’s. It is one of the popular CPU choices back then. Having a computer with either Celeron or Pentium means that you’re in the top of the game.

Those Half-Life mods (Counter Strike) ran smooth like a hot knife through butter, together with those janky keyboards and rubber ball mouse paired with a clunky CRT monitor. But we had a fun time playing on those.

In 2023, both CPUs will be stripped of their names and will be called “Intel Processor” — a general term Intel uses for all old CPU lineups. It will be used maybe in budget devices, but you’ll never know whether if it’s a Pentium or a Celeron.

Such decision is Intel’s reasoning in focusing more on their modern and premium lineups such their vPro, Evo, and the popular Core series.

Fear not, Celeron and Pentium powered laptops will still be around the corner and on new releases, but do you really need to buy one when there’s better options? I say go, if you’re an old tech enthusiast or you’re just on a budget. Pentium and Celeron processors aren’t popular for nothing.
