Intel goes aggressive in budget market

Posted on Saturday, October 14 2006 @ 03:57:18 CEST by

The Inq writes Intel is aggressively marketing in the low-end market to target VIA's C7 and AMD's Geode LX/NR range.
These chips are clearly not destined for desktop computers, but rather the sorts of things that Mini ITX Boards have increasingly become successful in, such as web kiosks, medical instruments and in-vehicle applications, which generally like low power and fanless operation for the sake of reliability.

VIA and AMD have enjoyed significant success in these growing markets, where PC compatibility is seen as a strength for adding computer functionality without the stress of coders having to learn a new processor architecture.

Earlier, Intel pushed out a 600MHz zero cache version of the Celeron M, known as Shelton, however, as we showed the performance of this was a bit of a mixed bag, particularly relative to the K7-based NX.
