No More Pentium E1000? Intel Unveils Plans For Pentium E2000

A source among manufacturers reported that Intel has cancelled Pentium E1000 previously planned to release in Q207. Instead, a new dual core Pentium E2000 family is introduced, enlarging the popularity of dual core processor.

In the previous plan, Pentium E1000 (Conroe-L) family are single-core processors which include E1020 (1.4GHz/1MB L2/800MHz FSB), E1040 (1.6GHz/1MB L2/800MHz FSB), and E1060 (1.8GHz/1MB L2/800MHz FSB). They are set to replace the market of single-core Netburst. However, as dual core is already popular, single core hasnít got much room to live, and hence Pentium E2000 family now bears the mission to replace the market instead. Conroe-L is kept for Celeron only.

According to the latest roadmap from Intel, Pentium E2000 is based on native L2 stepping 2MB Conroe core, in which 1MB of the L2 cached is disabled. This family is available from Q307 including E2140 (1.6GHz/1MB L2/800MHz FSB) and E2160 (1.8GHz/1MB L2/800MHz FSB). Enhanced Intel SpeedStep (EIST), Intel 64 (I64) and Execute Disable Bit (XD Bit) are supported like Core 2 Duo. Yet Intel Virtualization (VT), ViiV and vPRO are excluded for separating the market.

In addition, Intel has updated its shipment estimation. In Q107, Pentium 4 single core share about 18% of the total shipment for Desktop computer. The proportion is expected to slip gradually. As 90nm Pentium 4500 and 600 family are cut in Q207, the only left will be 65nm Pentium 4 6x1 where the shipment share has dropped to 7% or lower.

Stepping in Q307, the Era of Netburst comes to the end as Pentium D and Pentium 4 are both terminated at that time already. The vacancies of market are replaced by Core 2 Duo E4000 and Pentium E2000. Intel expects Pentium E2000 will share 18% of the total shipment when launched.
