65 nm Celeron Ds coming May 28

Intel has some 65 nm Celeron Ds scheduled for a May 28 launch, according
to a report
by DigiTimes
. The processors will be built on the same Cedar Mill
core as Intel’s 65 nm Pentium 4 6×1 chips, and have a thermal
design power of 65 W, down from 73-84 W for current 90 nm Prescott-based
Celerons. According to DigiTimes, Intel will release two 65nm Celeron D
chips on May 28: a 3.2 GHz Celeron D 352 and a 3.33 GHz Celeron D 356.
The company is also expected to unveil a 3.46 GHz Celeron D 360 some
time between July and September. All three CPUs will feature a
533 MHz front side bus and 512 KB of L2 cache—twice the cache of
current Prescott-based Celeron Ds.

Regarding prices, DigiTimes says the Celeron D 352, 356, and 360 will cost
$79, $89, and $103, respectively. The chips will likely compete against
AMD’s Sempron 3000+, 3200+, and 3400+ processors, which AMD currently
sells for $77, $87, and $97.

    So the new Celerons are the same performance as the Northwoods from 3 years ago just with more heat?

    cellery and other vegetables are good for you. although, being one might change things.

    Conroe sure deserved a better name than the stupid Core 2 Duo they have saddled it with ggrrr.
    In the interests of brevity should we call it C2D from now on?
    (God that even sounds like one of R2D2’s relatives) ggrrrrr.
    Intel marketing dept oughta get there heads kicked for that pathetic effort.

    Am I crazy for thinking we’ll see Presslers rebadged as Celerons next year, once Core 2 Duo’s volumes are high enough to completely take over the midrange and high-end? It makes more sense than fussing around with the dead end of single-core Conroes…

    Wow, another slow, single core, Celeron CPU; how positively 1998.

    (I was going to use the old “1998 called…….”, but its starting to get played out)

    3.46GHz, 512K, and 533 fsb is not too bad. The fsb will probably hold things back, and the lack of HT/dual core is a dealbreaker for me, but not a bad chip at all for a Ben.

    Can’t OC cleanly, though. The lowest mult chip, at 800 fsb, is already 4.8GHz, which I doubt any will run without heroic measures. 666 fsb gets you 4GHz, though, which might happen.

    Not the new 300A, anyways. Heck, not even a 333 or 366.

      Methinks there will never be another 300A…or 366, for that matter.

    Whats the motivation to not go Celeron D 360 now, other than no dual core multitasking creamy smoothness? I personally would go Core 2 Duo for my personal rig just because I like the numbers we are starting to see, but everyone else in my immediate and extended family would probably do more than alright with a Celeron D 360 for a hunerd bux.

      If there is a Core 2 Solo (I am betting they will put single core Conroes in the value segment) at around ~$130 then it will be a much better proposition than the Celeries. The target audience is not the ones that will clean their fans and check the temps constantly.

        ‘Course, ye olde NetBurste chip will be dirt cheap come Conroe. Just imagine the prices on these Celerons. 😀

    What is Intel thinking? 512k L2 is dangerously close to being large enough for the user to be productive. LOL

      edit: oops P4 core, nvm. ick 😛 Not a bad product, just not the core I was hoping for 😛

      originally:
      finally a budget celeron that can be taken halfway seriously hehe :B

      Should be an exciting market segment once all this vapor solidifies into actual stuff that we can consider buying finally.

      Just in time for Vista to slow it down and make it unproductive again. 😉

        ah, fair point! touche!
