Intel unveils 2.5GHz Mobile Celeron

Last P4-based value mobile chip

Intel extended its Mobile Celeron line to 2.5GHz yesterday.

The 130nm part is based on the same core as current Pentium 4s, but with only 256KB of L2 cache and a 400MHz effective bit rate frontside bus. It consumes up to 35W of power.

The chip will probably be the last Mobile Celeron based on the current, 'Northwood' P4, before 'Banias' Pentium M-based parts make it to the value processor family.

In 1000-unit quantities, the 2.5GHz Mobile Celeron costs at $149 a pop. ®
