Default Intel to Release Celeron E1000 Dual-Core on Jan 20

From our front-page news:
Intel's Celeron processors have been designed for value-conscious consumers since their inception, and that is not about to change. However, as the rest of Intel's line-up continues to grow and improve, so do their budget offerings, which is evidenced by the new E1200 1.6GHz. According to DigiTimes, this sku should launch on Jan 20 for a price of $53 per 1,000 units.

What sets this model apart from other Celerons is the fact that it's dual-core, so despite being slower overall to begin with, the second core will greatly boost performance in applications that support multi-threading. As expected, other features are kept to a minimum, such as the 800MHz FSB, 512KB L2 cache and of course, the price, at $27 per core. For those with a specific need to keep things strictly budget, the E1200 will be a great choice. For the rest of us, Intel's E8200 (2.66GHz, Dual-Core, 1333MHz, 6MB L2 cache) at $163/1,000 will be a hard deal to beat.

Meanwhile, Intel will also roll out the quad-core QX9770 processor which features a frequency of 3.2GHz, 1600MHz FSB, 12MB cache and TDP of 136W with a price tag of US$1,399 in thousand-unit quantities in January. Before March, the company will also introduce a high-end quad-core QX9775 processor with a frequency of 3.2GHz, 1600MHz FSB, 12MB L2 cache and 150W TDP. Pricing in thousand-unit quantities will be US$1,499, said the sources.
