Single-core for the value minded

DailyTech has received Intel roadmaps that outline Intel’s value desktop products. New to Intel’s value desktop lineup will be Conroe-L based processors. Unlike Intel’s Core 2 Duo Conroe products, the new Conroe-L processors will not carry the Core nomenclature. Instead Intel is resuscitating the Pentium and Celeron brands for Conroe-L based products.

E1060 1.80GHz 800MHz 1MB
E1040 1.60GHz 800MHz 1MB
E1020 1.40GHz 800MHz 1MB

The Pentium Conroe-L lineup will carry the E1000 series processor number. Three Pentium E1000 models will be available initially. These models include the Pentium E1060, E1040 and E1020 clocked at 1.80, 1.60 and 1.40 GHz respectively. All Pentium E1000 series processors will have an 800 MHz front-side bus with 1MB of L2 cache. Intel Enhanced Memory 64 Technology and Execute Disable Bit are the only technologies featured on Pentium E1000 processors. Intel Virtualization, HyperThreading and Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology are not supported.

Not much is known about the Conroe-L Celeron aside from it having a 400 number sequence. Expect the Celeron 400 series to be slightly crippled when compared to the Pentium E1000 series. DailyTech speculates Conroe-L Celeron 400 series processors will have 512KB of L2 cache and operate on a 533 MHz front-side bus to not overlap with the Pentium E1000 series.

Pricing and availability of Pentium E1000 and Celeron 400 series processors is unknown at the moment.

It is the whole price of the system. I just finished building an Intel Box. Originally I was trying to pull an 805 wonder. The board costs $100 more or so than its equivalent counterpart (and yes I already stated that the I know this should have performed better, I am just talking about price). The heatstsink pin (OEM) was a mess and wound up not being very steadily attached and fried the CPU (and also I admit a part of my own fault). My PQI memory stick was bad (1 of 2 chips, this is somewhat common) and I had to upgrade my power supply.(due to the Xeon power supply on some intel boards).

Figure $400 premium on a mid range do it yourself system. I know this is high, but figure at least $200 for an average anandtech do it yourselfer.

There is no way Intel can compete on cost, except on a Dell (even with 945G as ASRock). And low end Dells are now going AMD. Hee heee.
