Original Celeron bites dust

And so do PII 233, 266 and 300, too

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The original Celeron is discontinued, Intel confirmed today. The processor, launched in spring this year, gave way to later revisions of the brand name with a faster Mendocino core. And Intel has also decided to discontinue the PII/233, the PII/266 and the PII/300. It will continue to supply the processors to those with existing orders until November 1999, a representative said. The move means that Intel will now concentrate on pushing its higher clocked PIIs, with the Pentium II/333 now the entry level processor. Distributors reported some weeks ago that there was a shortage of PII/266 and PII/300 parts, and the announcement by Intel is, in some respects, a solution to these problems. There are unlikely to be any changes on PII prices until early January, however. ®
