Within two months Intel will roll out its new single-core Conroe-L entry-level processors. X-bit Labs spend some time with these chips in their test lab.
Here's a snip:
So, it looks like Celeron 4XX is the last bastion of the single-core processors in Intel’s camp. So our today’s article will be devoted solely to these new processors, and has every chance to become a “single-core memorial” in the end. However, I decided to write this article not because “simplicity in everything” is my motto and I wanted to praise the advantages of single-core architecture. The thing is that I was lucky enough to get my hands on an engineering sample of the promising Celeron 4XX processor. And since Xbit Labs has been known for offering indepth previews of the new processor technologies, we just couldn’t leave this great opportunity unnoticed.
