Celeron Slot One dead

And it won't be long before other Slot Ones follow

As first reported here early this year, the Celeron Slot One platform will be dead in the water by June. That is the preparatory move by Intel for other Slot One platforms to disappear too, as we reported from February's Intel Developer Forum. The move is partly to do with new designs and the end of legacy systems that Intel and its customers are planning. Again, at IDF, senior VP Paul Otellini confirmed that Intel was moving to a socket design. Last week, we reported that a 100MHz FSB Celeron will arrive early next year with Streaming SIMD and that the 815 chipset has been replaced by the 810E chipset. ® Related Stories Faster Celerons released faster Celeron to go 100MHz FSB Intel to slash Pentium III prices on 11 April Intel Celeron 433 to arrive Monday Complete Intel Developer Forum coverage
