Together with Pentium 4-M, Intel enriched its Mobile Celeron family as well. And the newcomers in this family appeared really unexpected. If we were not surprised to witness the announcement of Mobile Celeron 1.33GHz (Socket370, 133MHz FSB, Tualatin/256), then the launching of its counterparts working at 1.4GHz and 1.5GHz and supporting 400MHz QP (i.e. intended for Pentium 4 platform) appeared a surprise to all of us. The new solutions should sell at the following prices for 1,000-unit quantities, of course: $134 for 1.33GHz, $149 for 1.4GHz and $170 for 1.5GHz version

The most interesting thing here is that Celeron working at 1.4GHz and 1.5GHz are based on Northwood-256 core, which should later on (to be more exact only in the beginning of next year) come to the desktop Celeron processors. The remarkable thing about this core is the fact that it features 256KB cache-memory. In other words, it turns out that the mobile Celeron 1.5GHz boasts the same features as the desktop Pentium 4 1.5GHz. Although the latter has already become really outdated and has been discontinued a while ago now.

The thing is that Mobile Celeron CPUs have always been the ahead of their desktop counterparts in getting new enhancements. Remember, 100MHz FSB, 133MHz FSB, 0.13micron manufacturing technology (Tualatin/256)… And again the Mobile Celeron seemed to have turned out luckier than their desktop brothers...
