New Celeron in 2002
The 0.18 µm processor will be equipped with 128 KB L2 cache, the 400 MHz quad-pumped front-side bus and will be launched on the market in the µPGA478 housing for socket 478 .
After Intel recently presented the Celeron models with the Tualatin core, you can learn from the new roadmap that these should be replaced in autumn 2002. Until then, Intel wants to achieve a clock rate of at least 1.4 GHz with the Celeron. The Pentium 4 with 2.53 GHz and an FSB of 533 MHz will also be available in the third quarter. This then already has the 0.13 µm Northwood core and an L2 cache of 512 KB. The first processor models with this core should already be available at the beginning of the year, with the matching Tehama-E (formerly Tulloch) mainboard chipset from Intel, the matching memory chips with 533 MHz can then be addressed.
