Intel's Desktop Roadmap

P4 comes to Celeron line, 533MHz FSB comes to P4 - and more...

Updated It's 'all change' on Intel's desktop processor roadmap as the chip giant's latest update pushes back the release of Northwood, the 0.13 micron die-shrink, and the company drops its Rambus-based Tulloch chipset for the... er... Rambus-based Tehama-E.

Northwood will now ship next January, in the expected 2GHz and 2.2GHz forms. Intel will then release a 2.4GHz version in Q2 and a 2.5GHz version in Q3 - all of them with a 400MHz frontside bus.

During Q3, Intel will also debut the 533MHz FSB variant, dubbed Northwood B, at 2.53GHz. The following quarter, a faster, 400MHz FSB version - Northwood A - will ship at over 2.53GHz (2.6GHz?)

Intel will continue to roll out Celerons through 2002, with the 1.8GHz 0.18 micron P4-based part appearing in Q3, as we reported earlier this week. It will be accompanied by a 1.5GHz 0.13 micron Tualatin Pentium III version. Expect a 1.9GHz or 2GHz P4-based Celeron in Q4.

Come Q3 and Intel will release Tehama-E, the replacement for Tulloch. It will also offer (as we've reported before) Brookdale-G, which will add integrated graphics to the i845-D, the DDR200/266 version of the i845. Intel will also offer Brookdale-GL, which appears to be the same part, but designed for the upcoming 1.8GHz P4-based Celeron. Presumably, unlike Brookdale-G, it lacks support for the 533MHz Northwood B frontside bus.
