New Intel Dual-core Celeron Coming in 2Q08

Having recently launching its first dual-core Celeron E1200 processor, Intel is ready to launch another family member with a faster core frequency in the second quarter of 2008. Intel is planning to launch E1400 with a core frequency of 2GHz, 800MHz FSB, L2 cache of 512KB, and maximum TDP of 65W. The chip is based on a 65nm Conroe core and supports Intel 64, XD Bit (Execute Disable Bit) and Speed Step technology. Pricing will be set at US$53 in a thousand-unit tray quantities. In the first quarter of 2008, Intel will let the dual-core Celeron E1200 and single-core Celeron 440, 430 and 420 defend the entry-level segment, while in the second quarter, the company will let the Celeron E1400, 440 and 430 continue the job, while phasing out the E1200 and 420. During its first quarter of sales, the Celeron E1000 series accounted for around 3% of Intel's total desktop CPU shipments, and the ratio will not exceed 10% in 2008. The series is expected to completely replace single-core Celerons by the second quarter of 2009.Source: DigiTimes

Celeron faster than my E4300 @ stock :( (on those tests/programs where cache amount has little to no effect). I do't see many people buying single cores after these :)

I can't remember the last time somebody bought a single core processor from where I work...We usually give up and end up selling them to another store.

What i'm saying is: I don't think the whole dual core Celeron thing is a good idea. Just fork out the extra $10 and get a Pentium Dual Core...512kb of L2 cache shared between 2 cores is pretty ridiculous.

And overclocking will not be the remedy in this case. Although dual-core budget processors from Intel can more than double their speed as a result of successful overclocking, their gaming performance can hardly hit the level of Core 2 Duo E4600 even at 3.4GHz clock speed. That is why the new dual-core Celeron processors will hardly be of interest to gaming enthusiasts. Moreover, for only $11 more you can get Pentium E2160 that can guarantee about 25% faster gaming experience.
That is a segment of their conclusion focusing on the gaming performance. What they forget to mention however is that they are basing that conclusion on the fact that at 1024x768 (where the cpu is the limitation) the celeron doesn't do as well as its direct competition. Well how about at gaming resolutions then (ie the resolutions that most of us will probably use or want to see a review of)? What does it do there? 1680x1050 for example?

Are you sure on that Dom?

1024x768 is more CPU dependent than 1680x1050. Meaning, If you crank the resolution, your now testing the vid card in combination with cpu, not just more cpu. Unless your using like integrated video.
