Intel's 90nm Celerons fall back to Q2

Not to be released this quarter after all

Intel CFO Andy Bryant's pledge to shift "most of the value line" of processors to 90nm during Q1 2004 appears to have gone off the rails.

According to DigiTimes, citing Taiwanese motherboard makers, the first three 90nm Celeron processors will now arrive during Q2.

The report suggests the three chips will be clocked to 2.53, 2.66 and 2.8GHz, all operating with 533MHz effective bit rate frontside bus speeds and offering 256KB of L2 cache. The chips are priced as $79, $89 and $117, respectively.

DigiTimes also forecasts the arrival next quarter of a pair of entry-level chipsets, the 915GV and 910GL, which support Socket 775 and Socket 478 CPUs, respectively. ®
