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

Why not "Core 2 Solo"?
9/21/2006 11:19:20 AM
I'm quite confused why they didn't call it Core 2 Solo.
Intel has just launched a major campaign stating how the Core 2 is faster then any Pentium before it.
Celeron makes some sense for the bottom tier. People already associate "it works but it's is slow" with Celeron.
Since they nave been pushing the "Core 2" name, they should have...
Core 2 Quad
Core 2 Duo
Core 2 Solo
Core 2 Value (Or "Celeron" to keep the slowest chip from devaluing the "Core 2" name.
The "Pentium" name should stay dead. Somehow though I'm afraid the next Core 2 revision will be renamed the "Pentium 5"
I'm sure this will cause some people to buy a lower margin "Pentium" over a "Core 2" because they trust the Pentium name over something unknown. I can't tell you how many times uninformed people have been so confused by the Celeron name they said, "I won't buy a cheep Celeron because I don't trust that 'Celeron Company'. I's rather spend more and get a Pentium by Intel."
I feel bad for the inteligent marketing people who bang thier head out on the wall after hearing upper managment chose the above path.

"I'm quite confused why they didn't call it Core 2 Solo.."
Core 2 is a premium brand, that replaces Pentium. Celeron is their entry level brand, this PRODUCT is for their entry level brand.
"..They should have named it ...Core 2 Value (Or "Celeron" to keep the slowest chip from devaluing the "Core 2" name.."
Well, isn't that what they just did, genius?
"..I feel bad for the inteligent marketing people who bang thier head out on the wall after hearing upper managment chose the above path..."
Don't feel bad for them, I'm pretty sure they know what their doing.
