TPU reports Intel is planning to introduce the Celeron E3900 in the first quarter of 2010. Asian sources reveal this chip runs at 3.4GHz (200MHz x 17), with a 800MHz FSB, and 1MB L2 cache. Intel VT technology is missing, so no Windows XP mode in Windows 7 for people who get this chip.
Two quarters ahead of its expected launch, sources in the Chinese media unearthed Celeron E3900, perhaps the last SKU in the E3000 series. Slated for Q1 2010, the Celeron E3900 runs at 3.40 GHz (200 MHz x 17), with an FSB speed of 800 MHz. It has a shared L2 cache size of 1 MB, and supports the most common instruction sets including SSE3, SSSE3, and x86-64, although SSE4.1 and Intel-VT isn't part of it. The latest company roadmap of the essential and value segments show that the company looks as far as Q3 2010 with its Celeron and Core 2 Duo brand products, with existing number schemes. In essence, retailers in Q3 2010 shouldn't have stock problems selling you these processors.
