Intel to release new, improved Celerons
Posted on: 03/29/2000 12:38 PM

According to the boys over at Zdnet, Intel is scheduled to announce the "new and improved" celeron chip today in 566MHz and 600MHz versions.
Moving Celeron from the 0.25 micron manufacturing process to 0.18 will allow Intel to increase the clock speed of the chip. The process switch also allowed for the addition of the features found only in the Pentium III, including Intel's SSE (streaming SIMD extensions) for multimedia processing.
For all of us that can't afford a Pentium III processor, needless to say this is exciting. I can't wait to see how far we can push these processors... You can check out the rest of the article here.
