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.

AMD is taking the honorable way
Since when has AMD educated the general public about what they actually need? I go to the store and see horribly overpriced AMD POS laptops right next to the horribly overpriced Intel POS laptops. There is no sign next to the AMD one saying "This is all you need for email."
The truth is that there is a
market for budget machines, and Intel is simply being creative about getting old product out the door.

Crap I should have read the linked article. It's the core 2 but with stuff disabled. Still, it makes sense. Faulty Core 2 Duo = $50 Pentium E.

You're right, there is a huge market for budget machines. If you have watched AMD's methods in the past, they have been educating people that it is not the clock frequency that matters, but how much a chip can do per second. So many people simply pick computers simply for it's clock rate, and AMD had better chips that used less power. They don't now, so the model numbers are really meaningless now, but they have to keep going with what they started or it causes even more confusion.
Intel has further muddled things up lately by squeezing lower clock rate chips between other chip simply because that chip is a ULV chip. Intel's model number scheme confuses people worse, leading to confused people just picking whatever is in their price range.
It would be nice if sales people were actually knowledgable and honest, but I guess that is like asking for the moon. Budget machines are the worst for having sales people sell people on what they don't need and not giving them what they do need.
