The Tech Report checks out Intel's latest 1.7GHz Celeron.
Intel's new Celeron looks just like a Socket 478-compatible Pentium 4 processor and is almost identical to the older "Willamette" Pentium 4 (all Pentium 4s until about the beginning of the year were based on the Willamette core). Like Willamette, the Celeron 1.7GHz is fabbed on a 0.18-micron process and consumes 1.75V of power. 1.75V is a little high considering previous Tualatin-based Celerons consumed 1.475V, but those processors had the luxury of being built on a 0.13-micron process.More information at The Tech Report
