Intel to Phase Out Single Core Processors

Intel took on the mindset of "out with the old and in with the new", and their choice is reflected in their roadmaps. Starting in Q1 2008, Intel will remove their single-core offerings from the market by replacing them with superior dual-core models. The upcoming Celeron E1000 series will be the first entry-level dual-core processor to hit the market. The first dual-core Celeron, the E1200, is clocked at 1.6GHz, has an 800MHz FSB, a 512KB L2 cache, and will cost a mere $51 USD (in thousand-unit quantities). All of the E1000 series will be based on the Core 2 Duo micro-architecture, and will be 45nm parts.Source: DigiTimes

4ghz celeron anyone?:laugh:

They should clock nice on 45nm.

I would say 6Ghz with extreme cooling solutions. The chip I have is known to be clocked up to almost 7Ghz on LN2. :eek:

But here's the story. This rig works "fine" for me, I have been looking for a new motherboard though. Any ideas on which chipsets these would run on?

it should run on p35/p965/p975 possibly.

I wonder if this will include the Celeron Ds that most schools use right now. ha ha ha ha . But hey at least thats a nice price for a dual core processor. And this will be a nice speed increase for school computers as well considering they will always buy the cheapest computer they can get, those cheapskates.

holy hell, 7ghz on a chip? I wonder how that works, I mean with boot times and such, you almost have to unplug it to make sure it wont reboot when you push the power button

Err what? Remember these chips are going to have really small cache which hampers its performance.
