Pentium 4 technology will come to Intel's Celeron line next summer, the chip giant's latest roadmaps show, just as Tualatin 0.13 micron Pentium IIIs are even now turning up with Celeron badges.

The P4 Celeron will ship in Q3 at 1.8GHz, say the roadmaps, according to a report over at The Inquirer. They will be offered with a Socket 478 interface and 400MHz frontside bus and fabbed at 0.18 micron. By then almost all P4s will be 0.13 micron Northwood parts and support a 533MHz frontside bus.

Whether the 1.8GHz part will ship with the Celeron badge remains to be seen - the roadmap simply lists them in the ">$700, Value" market segment. On the one hand, Celeron is now a very well-established brand, on the other P4 technology is quite different from PIII-generation parts.

Interestingly, the 1.8GHz part will ship alongside what appears to be a 1.5GHz Tualatin-based chip. As such, the latter arguably will perform as well as if not better than the P4 derivative. ®
