Intel's Celeron hits 2.0GHz

— 12:45 PM on September 18, 2002

Intel's new 0.13-micron Northwood Celeron processors are out, but sadly, feature the same anemic 128K of L2 cache as previous Wilamette-based Celerons. In our Celeron 1.7GHz review, we saw just how much of a hindrance 128K of cache can be for the Pentium 4 processor, but it looks like Intel is content to keep the strangling the Celeron's performance. The die shrink will allow new Celerons to ramp to higher clock speeds, which should make the marketing folks happy, but the processor remains on Intel's 400MHz front side bus.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
