Intel yesterday grew the Celeron desktop line with two new processors running at 2.3 and 2.4GHz, respectively.

We say 'new', but both parts are essentially second-generation Pentium 4 chips - aka Northwood - with most of the on-die L2 cache switched off. The Celerons contain 128KB of cache, operate with a 400MHz frontside bus and ship in Socket 478 packaging. The chips are fabbed at 0.13 micron.

The 2.4GHz chip cost $127, the 2.3GHz part $117. The rest of the Celeron line-up comes in as: 2.2GHz ($103), 2.1GHz ($89), 2.0GHz ($83). All prices are per chip sold in batches of 1000. The 0.18 micron 1.8GHz and 1.7GHz Celerons cost $69 and $54m, respectively. ®
