Intel Corporation introduced Tuesday new Intel Celeron M processors with boosted performance aimed at the market of thin-and-light notebooks. The chips are made using 90nm process technology and may substitute the company’s older-generation Pentium M products that offer the same specifications.

The Intel Celeron M processors 350 and 360 are the first standard-voltage Intel Celeron M processors built on Intel’s 90nm process technology. They run at frequencies of 1.30GHz and 1.40GHz, respectively, and feature 400MHz Quad Pumped Bus, 1MB of L2 cache – almost double the cache of the previous-generation Intel Celeron M processors.

Previously Intel offered Celeron M 340, 330, 320 and 310 processors clocked at 1.50GHz, 1.40GHz, 1.30GHz and 1.20GHz processors with 512KB of L2 cache. All these chips have been made using 130nm process technology.

Earlier this year sources close to Intel Corp. indicated that the Santa Clara, California-based chipmaker would only start to transit the Celeron M lineup to the 90nm process technology in the fourth quarter of the year. While the firm decided to speed up the transition, it now ships lower-speed SKUs compared to what was indicated to ship in the Q4 2004.

Previously it was expected that the Celeron M products made using 90nm technology process will be available at 1.40GHz, 1.50GHz and 1.60GHz in Q4 2004.

In 1000 unit quantities, the Intel Celeron M 350 and 360 products are priced at $107 and $134, respectively.

I wonder if intel have anything up their sleve more innovative that just throwing cache (cash?) at the problem?

What's wrong with more cache? What? You want less? Because it really costs next to nothing to add more cache.

Celeron-Ms are just Pentium-Ms without power saving features and an added latency in the cache to make them "budget".

The Pentium-M/Celeron-M are based on the old P6 core (PII/PIII/Celeron), why waste money on making a new design, when the old one is good and able! (do things with less power consumption).

They do have something in their sleeves...Just because you don't hear about it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

You'll see Intel's 2nd generation dual-core being the "next new thing". It'll likely to be based on the Pentium-M, but with major redesign for proper dual-core capability.

Their first generation is gonna be a joke. Only made to respond to AMD's dual-core. Two mid-end P4 cores slapped together...Its no better than current Xeon setups...Well, maybe you only need 1 heatsink. :)
