Tile rendering should be on the Intel GMA iirc, as that's where the desktop usage of PowerVR's graphics patents went into after PVR were over with the discrete card market and gained foothold in mobile chips.
I believe it is also in use in the Xe architecture.
The GMA PVR based edition didn't get supported very long at all, it was in some dual core atoms/chipsets, and didn't get windows 8 or 10 drivers. Irritating, I can run w10 on my slow old netbooks with GMA 950 but wifeys "fast" (for atom) netbook is stuck on w7

Celeron is bad, underperforming and generally unusable.
There are reasons for that. For sure, initial cacheless celerons, horrible, coppermine celerons are only "good" if you're stuck on a 66Mhz bus with slow PIIs as alternative, no reason to run a netburst celeron unless you're going for liquid nitrogen Ghz records, atom based celerons are meh. On the other hand, you've got the full speed cache mendocinos, the tualatin celerons that weren't held back much from PIII performance, the conroe based celerons, great if you want high single core speeds on 65nm only boards or conversely, low power. PentiumM based celerons, I'm undecided on, they're not as nice as PentiumM but the arch is still tractable. Intel seem to cripple celerons by alternately putting a tiny pebble in their shoe, or blasting one foot point blank with a shotgun, there's barely any in between.
Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.
