Intel ships 800MHz Celerino


— 12:39 PM on December 3, 2003

Intel has quietly begun shipping an "ultra low voltage" 800MHz Celeron chip based on the Pentium M processor. The new Celeron features half the L2 cache of current Pentium M processors, but runs on the same 400MHz front-side bus.

800MHz mobile Celerons are already showing up in Tablet PCs and appear to offer up to a $300 savings over Pentium M-equipped products. The new low-end chips nicely fill out the bottom of Intel's Centrino line, which will extend further into high-end products when Dothan core Pentium M processors are released next year.
