Dual Core Celerons coming early 2008

I'd think it will be a good time for AMD to stop making single core
Athlons and Semprons once Intel's desktop lineup is entirely dual
core. About the only place that single core makes since anymore is
with low wattage ULV and embedded CPU's.

Intel Preps Dual-Core Celeron Microprocessors – Documents.
Intel Readies Dual-Core Microprocessors for $35 - $50

It was just a matter of time before the leading makers of central
processing units (CPUs) start to sell dual-core chips for value
computers and it now seems that the time will come in the first
quarter of next year, when Intel Corp. unveils dual-core Intel Celeron
microprocessors aiming the most affordable personal computers (PCs).

The first Intel Celeron E1200 dual-core processor working at 1.60GHz,
utilizing 800MHz processor system bus and featuring 512KB of unified
secondary-level cache will emerge in the first quarter of 2008 to
target cost-effective desktops. Later during the year Intel plans to
add more chips into the Intel Celeron E1000 dual-core lineup, creating
a comprehensive family of affordable chips with two processing
engines.

Intel’s Celeron E1000 dual-core processors are set to be made using
65nm process technology and are projected to fit into 65W thermal
design power envelope. The new CPUs will be drop-in compatible with
all platforms that support code-named Conroe processors, e.g. Intel
Core 2 Duo or Intel Pentium dual-core E2000-series.

According to documents seen by X-bit labs, Intel plans to describe the
new Intel Celeron dual-core processor as delivering “entry
multi-tasking experience for value-conscious customers”. Currently
Intel sells Celeron processors for $34 - $59, therefore, it is
possible to expect that the new E1000-series will also fit into that
gap. It is interesting to note that the launch of the new Celeron
dual-core chips will not mean end of life for Intel Pentium
processors, which will continue to serve upper segment of low-cost
desktop systems.

Given relatively low clock-speed and not a large cache, it is unlikely
that Intel Celeron E1000 dual-core microprocessors will show
incredible performance. Nevertheless, the forthcoming emergence of the
new chips proof that multi-core technology are rushing into the value
segment of the market.

Crippled Conroes. Should perform like crap.
