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.

I'm not sure if the quad-core Core 2 processors will be called Core 2 Quadro because a certain graphics-card manufacturer uses the Quadro name already for its workstation-cards.
But to answer your question, yes the cost of Core 2 Duos will doubtless fall when the quad-core models become available, but bear in mind that by then AMD will be close to launching the K8L which should at least match and quite possibly exceed Conroe's performance.
