In the first quarter of next year Intel will release a value Merom processor called Celeron-M 500, the frist model will be the Celeron-M 520.
Intel expects the new models will share about 10% of the market in Q1 2007 and then reach 20% in Q2, whereas Yonah based Celeron M processors will slash to only 5% of the market share.

According to the latest roadmap of mobile processors from Intel, Celeron-M 520 is the only model being released in Jan 2007. It’s a single core processor at 1.6GHz, having 1MB L2 Cache and 533MHz FSB. Its interface will remains in Socket M which gives support to Centrino Napa Refresh platform. The price is $134, the same as Yonah based Celeron-M 450 (2GHz/1MB L2/533MHz FSB).

The second model, Celeron-M 530 (1.73 GHz/1MB L2/533MHz FSB), is only to be released in Q2 2007. It also is in Socket M interface. Friends from the industry said the Socket P models of Celeron-M 500, which support Santa Rosa platform, have to be waited until Q3 2007.
