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.

Actually, it is... Just with a slightly faster front side bus and an expanded instruction set. The 1.1 GHz Celeron of four years ago was based on the Pentium 3, and so is pre-NetBurst. Much the same core technology as Core 2.
Of course, the additional instructions will help out with media playback, since it adds SSE3 and 4. And you can run in 64-bit mode. But other than stuff that uses SSE and 64-bit, and benefits from a faster memory bus, a 1.1 GHz Celeron 400 would probably have exactly the same performance as an old Celeron 1.1 GHz. (So MPEG decoding probably wouldn't have a noticable difference, since SSE3 and 4 don't add much for MPEG decoding, and unless you're trying to decode full HD streams, you won't be saturating the older/slower bus, even.)
