The desktop processor, based on 0.13-micron process technology, represents Intel’s fastest offering for the price-sensitive desktop value PC market segment, and will use the Intel 810 and Intel 815 chipset.
“The Celeron processor is targeted at the desktop value PC market segment,” said Gilbert Lacroix, Intel general manager MEA. “This segment is primarily comprised of consumers, where price is a key factor.”
Intel’s copper-based 0.13 micron process technology features the world’s fastest transistor, the smallest transistor gate, the thinnest gate oxide and the smallest SRAM cell yet reported in commercial production. These attributes, combined with Intel’s copper technology, deliver processors at lower power consumption and at low cost.
Intel plans to introduce the Pentium 4 processor on the 0.13-micron technology this month, and has used production of Pentium III and Celeron processors for the initial ramp of the manufacturing process.
Desktop Intel Celeron processors are now available at 1.30, 1.20, 1.10 and 1 GHz, and 950, 900, 850 and 800 MHz (all with the 100 MHz system bus).
