Intel reveiling Celeron 2.1 and 2.2GHz on 10 November?

Posted on Friday, October 25 2002 @ 11:03:13 CEST by

Intel has changed their plans, according to Xbit-Labs,and will be revealing the 2.1 and 2.2GHz Celeron processors on the 10th of November :
Presently Intel produces the Celeron processors using both 0.13 and 0.18 micron technologies. A lot of the fabs are already capable of making the CPUs using more thinner and more advanced technology, hence, Intel will soon not only be unable to deliver the 1.7 and 1.8GHz processors manufactured using 0.18 micron, but it will become unprofitable to them. In this case Intel may either start making the mentioned low-end CPUs using thinner process or simply discontinue them. Keeping in mind that the Celeron processors with 128KB of L2 cache offer relatively low performance when compared to the rival’s Athlon XP processors, Intel may really choose to offer the 2.10 and 2.20GHz CPUs in order to match the competitors.

With the launch of the newcomers, Intel will also reduce their prices on the old Celeron chips. According to the source, Celeron 1.30GHz, Celeron 1.40GHz (Tualatin-256) and Celeron 1.70GHz (Willamette-128) will cost $54, while the Celeron 1.80GHz (Willamette-128) and Celeron 2.0GHz (Northwood-128) will be priced at $69 and $83 respectively. As for the novelties, their pricing was not unveiled and may still be under determination. Given that the faster CPUs cost more, they should be more profitable to Intel, than those with lower core-clock.
