Even as world+dog is today reporting on the arrival of Intel's 90nm Socket 478 Celeron D processors - we covered it three days ago, natch, after spotting the then as-yet-unannounced chips on Intel's price list - it has emerged that the chip giant is preparing Socket T versions of the new CPUs.

Confirmation of the 775-pin Celeron Ds comes courtesy of small form-factor barebones PC maker Shuttle. This week, it introduced a Grantsdale-based XPC, the BS81P, as we reported yesterday.

Shuttle's spec mentions the new LGA-775 Pentium 4s, which Intel officially launched on 21 June, but it also notes that the BS81P's motherboard will support "Socket 775 Pentium 4 and Celeron 800/533MHz FSB". The specs for Shuttle's other Socket T XPC, the BS83GS, say the same thing. Both machines use Intel's new i915G chipset.

According to roadmaps seen in April, a 775-pin 2.8GHz Celeron D - model number 335 - is expected to ship this month. It had been assumed that the part would arrive alongside the Socket 478 versions announced this week, so unless the part is launched next week with the 64-bit 'Nocona' Xeon CPU, it may have been put back until Q3.

A 2.93GHz Socket T Celeron D is expected mid-Q3, followed by a 3.06GHz version at the start of Q4. ®
