Intel specifies Celeron M roadmap

It seems that these months Intel is going to aggressively attack the inexpensive notebooks market, in which Centrino has a not very good position. However, you shouldn´t expect prices for Centrino components to go down at once. Yes, you are to see the inexpensive Centrino notebooks in the market, but they´ll reach it in some other way: due to the "light" Pentium M processors that are already nicknamed Celeron M.

Last week we published the corresponding provisional data. Today PC Watch offered more details.

So, the first Banias-based Celeron M processors will have 512KB L2 cache. In Q1 2004 Intel is to introduce 1.2GHz and 1.3GHz models, in Q2 2004 1.4GHz model, in Q3 1.5GHz model. At that the first chips should consume 24.5W like usual Pentium M. At the same time we should see the 90nm Dothan-based Celeron M processors.

Below is Intel´s provisional roadmap for Dothan-based Celeron M solutions.
