Intel fills out Celeron M lineup
Intel has filled out its lineup of Celeron M processors with 1.3GHz, 1.2GHz, and 800MHz chips. The new chips will surely be popular in low-end notebooks and possibly even Tablet PCs, but like Intel's other budget chips, the Celeron M's capabilities are severely constrained. In addition to halving the Pentium M's cache from 1MB to 512KB for the Celeron M, Ars Technica is reporting that Intel has stripped out power-saving SpeedStep technology. Systems using Celeron M processors apparently can't use Intel's Centrino brand, either.
