Intel introduces Celeron II

The processor giant Intel is to present its new Celeron II processors with 566 and 600 MHz. The 667 and 700MHz Celeron II processors are also expected to arrive at the end of the second quarter.

Tomorrow, Intel will present its new Celeron II processors with 566 and 600 MHz. The 667 and 700MHz Celeron II processors are also expected to arrive at the end of the second quarter. The CPUs are based on the Coppermine core, which is manufactured in the 0.18 micron structure width. The new CPUs will have a 128 KByte L2 cache, since the Pentium III Coppermine has a 256 KByte L2 cache, with the Celeron II as a low-cost chip, half of this cache is simply switched off. In addition, the new SSE command extension of the Pentium III will also be found in the Celeron II. The FSB clock will not be 100 or 133MHz either, but will stay at 66MHz.
