    Intel is set to release its first dual-core desktop Celeron CPUs, known as the E1000 series, on January 20th next year. First to be released will be the 1.6GHz E1200, which will have a 512KB L2 cache and a price tag of $53 US when bought in bulk quantities of 1,000 units. Intel is also expected to release four new dual-core CPUs based on the Wolfdale core that day, and three new quad-core Yorkfields were planned, although those may now have been delayed due to a FSB issue. Full product details and pricing for the new processors is below, remember that those prices are not retail.

    I dunno, seems to me like they're really leaving the low end open for AMD to do what they do best. The price discrepancy between their two cheapest parts is over 100$, looks like a pretty definite line in the sand. Especially considering the mass of AMD's lineup can be had for under 100$...

    What's up with the 8190 and 8200? Is there some kind of difference between them?

    It looks that way at the moment, but Intel is likely to release more Celerons in that price to give AMD a better challenge.

    I don't get what you are saying here. Their low end dual-core is now going to be in the $60 range and it should perform very nicely at that. AMD's lowest end dual-core is right at the same price point(x2 3800+). Intel is pretty competive on all price fronts right now.

    Celreon is just a name. These are Core 2 Duo chips. Celerons have been good chips since Intel released the Celeron D. They are cheap, perform nicely even in gaming, and overclock like crazy. The E1200 should give the X2 3800+ a run for its money in performance and overclock better.

    For that matter you can find a E2140 Pentium dual-core for $60. So why would anyone buy a cely? May be it should be cheaper around $40?

    Yeah, but the retail on the E2140 is more closer to $75. I believe the price for trays of 1000 is $69 for the E2140. So I'm sure if the E2140 can actually be had for $60 the E1200 can be had for less.

    Yea, I nabbed my e2180 for 85 bucks. With the new Celeron @ ~60 bucks and the e21x0's... Intel is covering all fronts now.

    Hm, I'd be happy with one at 1066FSB (a little over 2.1GHz).

    Nope. Retail E2140 brand new at microcenter store is $60. Check their ad. I am currently seeing their circular as I type.

    I never disputed that it could be had for cheaper than $75, but the retail price is ~$75. I just looked it up, the price per 1000 on the E2140 is $64.

    E2000 series is already sold here as celerons, don't see the point in these. If they'd just keep the old versions in market too they'd become cheaper and the new low end. You can't get E4300s anymore and E4600 is cheaper than E4500. If E1200 is really faster than let's say 440 Celeron (2.0GHz), then I get it.

    BUT if we talk about tiny budget overclocking CPU, the surely there isn't anything better (I'd still go for E2140). Up those voltages and see how far she goes :D If it dies, it's not so big a deal as some Q6600 :)

    Maybe now we are really moving out of single core era, at least Intel thinks so. Wasn't AMD bringing out refreshed K8s back?

    For low power budget boxes these are great. Just admit, it aint for TPU members though. We like the hot stuff.

    iirc, 8190 is an OEM chip, and lacks Virtualization.
