Chipzilla's new Celeron processors debut today and are likely to be the last ever to use the slug-like 66MHz frontside bus. In 1000-unit quantities, the 766 and 733MHz chips are priced at $170 and $112, respectively.

The 733MHz Celeron also becomes the latest addition to Intel's line of embedded processors aimed at products such as communications equipment, transaction terminals and industrial widgets. The processor has been validated with several chipsets, including the 810, 815, 815E and everyone's favourite, the 440BX.

Celeron processors are now available at 766, 733, 700, 667, 633, 600 and 566MHz.

Celery will hit 800MHz and 100MHz FSB in Q1 next year and 850MHz in Q2. At that time the entry-level Value 1 segment (under $700), will come with the 733MHz part announced today. ®
