Updated: Intel to retain Celeron Slot One until year end

The chip giant changed its mind

Intel said today it will continue supplying Slot One as well as 370 Socket Celerons until the end of this year. That represents a u-turn from its previous position. Last week, a US distributor is claiming that Intel has already discontinued Slot One designs for the Celeron 300A. A notice at The Ram Warehouse is claiming that Intel said it was discontinued on the 13th of January. An Intel spokesman said: "All Celeron processors up to and including the 433MHz will be available in both Slot One and PPGA. The Slot One for Celerons will continue at least until the end of 1999." He confirmed Intel had changed its mind since November last. "The 366MHz was going to be the last Slot One. We were talking about that before the launch." ®
