My System Specs

Default Intel to release Celeron E1000

I never really liked the Celeron cpu but who know its cheap enough

Quote:
Intel will release its first desktop dual-core Celeron series, E1000, on January 20, according to sources at motherboard makers. The first dual-core Celeron processor, the E1200, will have core frequency of 1.6GHz, 800MHz FSB and 512KB L2 cache with a price of US$53 in thousand-unit quantities.

On the same day, Intel will also launch three quad-core (Yorkfield) CPUs, the Q9300, Q9450 and Q9550 and another four dual-core (Wolfdale) CPUs, the E8190, E8200, E8400 and E8500 for desktops, the motherboard makers added.

Perfect! Allows stores like I work at to build inexpensive computers for people to surf the web and check their email!

512 KB shared L2 cache ... Eww ... I can barely handle a stock Pentium Dual Core w/ 1 MB L2 cache (it's easier to handle once overclocked massively) ...

I'd rather go AMD for budget builds in this price range; I'd bet they'd perform better and AMD has better budget motherboards in my experience ...

Your expectations are too high.. Windows XP with a 1gb of memory will be plenty fast for people who hardly touch their machine.

Yeah, I don't see these as being much slower than the current E2140. For $50 you're getting a killer deal! Good power consumption as well I bet.

I think they should just rebadge the Pentium Dual Cores as Celerons it would make more sense.

Yeah, agreed. Pentium is dead, it died with Athlon 64!
