Intel has announced that it will no longer be using the Pentium and Celeron brands for its future entry-level notebook CPUs. Replacing them is the arguably more generic “Intel Processor,” which the company has chosen to serve as the brand name for multiple processor families going forward to sharpen the focus on flagship brands Intel Core, Intel Evo, and Intel vPro.

“Whether for work or play, the importance of the PC has only become more apparent as the torrid pace of technological development continues to shape the world,” said Josh Newman, Intel vice president and interim general manager of Mobile Client Platforms. “Intel is committed to driving innovation to benefit users, and our entry-level processor families have been crucial for raising the PC standard across all price points. The new Intel Processor branding will simplify our offerings so users can focus on choosing the right processor for their needs.”
