Intel finally launched its 1.1GHz and 1.0GHz Celerons on Friday, just a few days later than we'd expected.

The parts, which are priced at $103 and $93, respectively, were accompanied by a 950MHz ($74). They allow the chip giant to beat arch-rival AMD on budget processor clock speeds. AMD's topmost Duron, announced a week or so back, clocks at 1GHz.

The new Celerons sport 100MHz frontside buses and contain 128KB of on-die L2 cache.

As we note in our updated Intel Desktop Roadmap, Intel is expected to follow up the 1.1GHz Celeron with a 1.2GHz part based on its 0.13 micron Pentium III core, aka Tualatin. ®
