Intel Celeron 2955U is low-voltage, integrated (soldered onto motherboards) processor, part of Intel’s budget line of processors. It is part of the “Haswell” generation and operates at a base frequency of 1.4GHz. Unlike its “bigger brethren” of the Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 families, Celeron 1007U does not sport TurboBoost or HyperThreading functionality, prohibiting it from overclocking its cores during periods of higher loads or emulating virtual/logic cores.
The chip is equipped with 128KB of first level cache, 512KB of second level cache, and 2MB of third level cache. The Intel Celeron 2955U has been developed using a 22nm process, allowing for the integration of the Intel HD Graphics (Haswell) controller. It operates at a base frequency of 200MHz and a has a dynamic maximum of 1000MHz. Power consumption of the whole system on a chip is 15 watts, with a maximum operating temperature of 100C.
Celeron 2955U supports PCI Express 2.0, up to 16GB of DDR3L/-LP 1333/1600 memory and the SSE4 instruction set.
