Intel Intel Ships First Dual-Core Celeron Processor

Intel is shipping a dual-core Celeron processor, the first low-end desktop processor from the company to ship with two cores.

The 1.6GHz Celeron Dual-Core E1200 processor is based on Intel's Core microprocessor architecture and is manufactured using a 65-nanometer process. The chip has 512K bytes of cache and uses an 800MHz front-side bus to connect with main memory and other components inside the PC.

Intel is selling the Celeron Dual-Core E1200 chips for US$53 each, in quantities of 1,000 units.

The release of the E1200 underscores how prevalent dual-core chips have become. The Celeron family is the low end of Intel's mainstream processor range, below the mid-range Pentium family and top-end Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad lines. The release of the Celeron E1200 means Intel now has multi-core processors in each of these product families.

Intel already offers a range of dual-core chips in its Pentium line: the 1.6GHz Pentium Dual-Core E2140, 1.8GHz Pentium Dual-Core E2160, 2GHz Pentium Dual-Core E2180, and the 2.2GHz Pentium Dual-Core E2200. The Pentium Dual-Core chips are priced from $64 to $84, in 1,000 unit quantitie

I think this is a bad move by Intel. With processor pricing on the free fall I do not think they need to introduced a crippled chip to be competative. This chip will be going against the X2 4000+ at the price point and will lose.

A X2 4000 isn't competition for someone upgrading an old system.
