Celeron D processors move to 65nm this year and get a cache upgrade

While mainstream and performance desktop processors take the leap to dual-core processors, value processors for Intel will remain single-core for all of 2006 and into 2007. The Celeron D will be receiving updates in the form of processor die reduction throughout the year. Cache sizes will be doubled with new 65nm products from 256KB to 512KB.

Intel Celeron D Roadmap Update
Processor Fab Type Cores GHz L2 Cache Launch
Celeron D 336 90nm Single 2.8 256KB Now
Celeron D 346 90nm Single 3.06 256KB Now
Celeron D 351 90nm Single 3.2 256KB Now
Celeron D 352 65nm Single 3.2 512KB Q2'06
Celeron D 355 65nm Single 3.33 256KB Q2'06
Celeron D 356 65nm Single 3.33 512KB Q3'06
Celeron D 360 65nm Single N/A 512KB Q3'06
Celeron D >360 65nm Single N/A N/A Q1'07

The last batches of 90nm Celeron D products will be phased out in Q4'06, with 65nm Celeron D products making taking up 100% of Intel's shipments in Q1'07 and beyond.  Keep in mind the newest Celerons do not use Intel's Core architecture, and are still based on the NetBurst path.

Bummer...they will all be based on the Netburst architecture for now. I was hoping for some cheap Conroe derivatives.

Even still, a Netburst derived Celeron at 3.33Ghz w/ 512k cache will make for a decent little processor on the cheap. The 65nm process will make it quite cool as well, so I'm thinking these upcoming Celerons will be quite attractive for budget builders.

i think amd alternatives consume less power judging by power consumption comparisons with p4s.

those celerons would be great if they are pin compatible with conroes. if not then there's nothing good going for them

No duals?
