New 0.13-micron 2.0 GHz Intel Celeron officially announced
Today Intel has officially announced 2GHz Celeron made using 0.13-micron process technology and packaged into 478-pin casing. FSB is 400 MHz.
At that the company missed 1.9 GHz version, though have had plans for its production. However, this did only good, as the chip costs $103 (1,000-unit and larger consignments) and will supposedly replace 1.8 GHz version soon. The new Celeron has also appeared for sale before the official press release not only in Tokyo, but also in Canada and Russia.
As 0.13-micron technology enables to reduce the cost price by 45% comparing to 0.18-micron technology, Intel gets better pricing and production profitability. Naturally, the main thing is not to let new Socket 478 Celerons take over Pentium 4 market share. Though, according to Taiwanese mass media, referring to PC makers, old Socket 370 Celeron stocks are still significant, so sales of new Socket 478 Celerons will have their space.
