The Celeron J1800I is a 10W TDP chip with two cores clocked at 2.41 GHz base and 2.58 GHz boost paired with an Intel HD Graphics GPU and 1MB CPU cache.
External I/O on the J1800I-C includes:

Pricing and availability have not yet been announced, but the board and CPU combo should retail for around $65 USD.
