Intel Completes 64-Bit Transition With Introduction Of Intel(R) Celeron(R) D Processor For Value PCs

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 27, 2005 – With the introduction today of the Intel(R) Celeron(R) D processor 351, Intel Corporation now has Intel(R) Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T), or 64-bit memory addressability, available throughout its entire desktop and server processor lines.

With appropriate 64-bit supporting hardware and software, PCs based on an Intel processor supporting Intel EM64T can enable the use of extended virtual and physical memory. For example, on digital media applications 64-bit desktop computing enables faster performance with its ability to process more in main memory, also referred to as RAM, due to less data caching to and from the hard drive. Also, Intel processors supporting Intel EM64T provide headroom for processing high-definition video by enabling improvements in both speed and quality of workflow with its ability to handle large amounts of data.

Support for Intel EM64T on the Intel Celeron D processor family is just one of several value-orientated features as Intel bolsters its value PC platform. The Intel Celeron D processor 351, when combined with an Intel
(R) 915 or 910 Express chipset-based platform, delivers a balanced level of technology and value for desktop PCs while also expanding 64-bit support. With such features such as Intel(R) High Definition Audio supporting 7.1 surround sound and the Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator 900 (Intel GMA 900) for improved graphics capabilities, consumers can experience crisp pictures and theater-quality sound when doing such things as surfing the Web, playing basic games, doing e-mails, creating word-processing documents, tracking home finances and using education software.

Logitech z5500 Speakers @ TechTastic.ca

"There's no question that these are decent speakers. The reviews are already out there, and they're pretty universally favourable. Tons of gamers have raved about the bass, the bass, the bass. The bass seems to be a particular thing with gamers. They like the bass. But what about somebody that's not all that interested in the bass? I'm not a big gamer, first of all. I play games like Civilization and Evil Genius, where things like bass aren't really a going concern. What I do love, however, is music."

Cooler Master Hyper 6 Heatsink @ PC Perspective

"Cooler Master has again combined brute size with innovative engineering to produce a HSF that can deliver good performance with minimal noise. The copper base, six heat pipes and large fin surface area excel at transferring heat and keeping the CPU cool. The Hyper 6 fit and finish is excellent as we have come to expect from Cooler Master. The addition of blue LED's to the clear fan frame is also a nice aesthetic touch."
