Intel yesterday began shipping a 2GHz Celeron chip, which means that tcheap PC you buy for Christmas needn't run like a dachshund.

Celerons are aimed at the budget PC market, also occupied by AMD's Durons (for now - AMD is winding down Duron production in 2003).

Intel's new top-of-the line chip is certainly cheap - $103 a pop in 1,000 units - Intel can price the part this low partly because it is manufactured on the 0.13m process line.

What else? The 2GHz Celeron has a 400MHz system bus and uses 478-pin packaging. ®
