Intel on May 28 will launch its 65nm single-core Celeron D processors, based on a Cedar Mill core, and having a power consumption of about 65W, according to Taiwanese reports
The launch date will follow right after the scheduled May 23 launch of AMD?s AM2-compatible processors.
The first 65nm Cedar Mill products, the Celeron D352 and D356 processors, will feature core speeds of 3.2GHz and 3.33GHz, respectively, 512KB of L2 cache memory and a front-side bus (FSB) of 533MHz.
Intel will launch the 3.46GHz Celeron D 360 in the third quarter, according to sources.
AMD?s upcoming AM2 processors will only be manufactured on a 90nm process technology. A 65nm AM2 version will not appear in the market until December, according to sources at Taiwan motherboard makers.
