As with all rumors please take the following news item with a grain of salt until we get official confirmation or denial from Intel.

It looks like the world of budget dual-core Intel chips is going to get a lot better in 2Q08:

“Intel is planning to launch E1400 with a core frequency of 2GHz, 800MHz FSB, L2 cache of 512KB, and maximum TDP of 65W. The chip is based on a 65nm Conroe core and supports Intel 64, XD Bit (Execute Disable Bit) and Speed Step technology. Pricing will be set at US$53 in a thousand-unit tray quantities.”

What's not to love in a chip that offers 64-bit support, dual-core, and a price that just about everyone can agree on?  It looks like the world of low-end computing just gets better and better.

Loving in ^_^, and considering it's based off allendale, the OC ability is also fantastic. The world of single core x86 processors is dimming and dying off thank god. More responsive systems which can multitask extremely well for very little cost? A much needed change for LOW budget rigs. ^_^

Yep, I heard of this. I guess it will be very good for laptops or people that do not really need a high performance computer, instead a comptuer that uses not as much power as all the other ones out there.

I wanna see the overclocking potential on that chip without a doubt.

Oh yeah, that will be sweet in my opinion. I bet you will be able to get a over 100% overclock with those. :)

With dry ice probably but I doubt it will with any other type of cooling since you need a 4GH freq. to reach a 100% OC. Having a chip from a good batch also helps.

Despite not being under a great deal of pressure from AMD's products, Intel is really mixing things up aggressively! If I were in the market for a basic PC, I'd deffinately opt for 1 of the new celerons.

AMD has some nice budget chips, there just not as fast as Intel's counterparts in some tests.

The new celerons are Allendales, so expect to see nearly the same OC potential out of them as you see with the low end Allendales e2x00 and e4x00. Overall, it means big performance for very small amounts of cash ^_^.

Makes sense. I believe in them. Maybe it can perform very well compared to the lower end and mid-range Core 2 Duos. :) You never know.

I don't expect that to happen though. After all, they are limited in l2 cache since they are budget processors. But when OC'ed, applications that utilize raw speed will definitely see great boosts. But a reduced L2 cache does impact performance.
