Intel will rename its Celeron chips produced using 90nm process technology launching this June. The main idea of the action is to help customers to distinguish between various value chips.
All Celeron processors with
Intel Celeron D processors will have 256KB of level-two cache, twice the size of current Celeron ships, and 533MHz Quad Pumped Bus, a 33% improvement over 0.13 micron value chips from the Santa Clara, California-based chipmaker. Besides, the new Celeron CPUs also sport SSE3 technology found in Pentium 4 “Prescott”. The chips will not have Hyper-Threading technology enabled, though.
