Intel Bringing New Core i7 and Celeron CPUs


In Q3 this year, Intel is planning two new Celeron E3000 series processors. This includes the E3200 and E3300, which will run at 2.4GHz and 2.5GHz respectively. Both chips will have 1MB of L2 Cache, 800MHz FSB, and a 65W TPD.


Coming in Q4 is the Core i7 960 CPU. This chip will come with a 3.2GHz clock. Intel wouldn't comment on the report, saying that they cannot do so for unannounced products.


Intel expects the proportion of Celeron E3000 CPUs out of the company's overall entry-level CPU shipments will reach 10% in the fourth quarter, while 65nm Celeron E1000s will drop from 20% in the third quarter to 10% in the fourth.


For the first quarter of 2010, the Celeron E3000 will jump to 21%, Celeron E1000s be completely phased out of the market, and the Celeron 400 series will account for around 15%, Atom D510 25%, Atom 330 27% and both Atom D410 and Atom 230 6% each.
