Celeron to go straight to 133MHz FSB?

Do not pass 100MHz, do not collect £200

If the spec for ABIT's bios upgrade for the BF6 and BE6 mobos is to be believed, future Celerons will have a FSB of 133MHz and not 100MHz [writes our pinch of salt correspondent].

World+dog has been expecting the next FSB jump for Celeron to be from 66 to 100MHz. Either Intel has a surprise up its sleeve or Abit is way off the mark with this bios upgrade.

The spec for the BIOS contains the following note:
"Supports the Celeron 566(66), 667(66), 850(133), 866(133) and 933(133) MHz CPUs."

Translation error or accurate prediction?

You decide.
