Celeron successor with its own graphics controller
At the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) some details about the Celeron successor (Timna) became known. The Timna will come onto the market with an integrated graphics controller and an integrated northbridge. Furthermore, like the Celeron A and Celeron2, it has a 128 KB L2 cache.
In addition to the normal RGB signal for monitors, the graphics controller also enables a digital output (digital video out) for flat screens and a TV-out (TV-Out). The northbridge will be equipped with a 400 MHz Rambus interface. In order to keep the Celeron successor still in the lower price category, Intel developed an interface that enables SDRAM to be used with the Timna. You are surprised that according to Intel only PC-100 modules are supported.
