Coming of Celerons with 512K L2 cache

By Derek Sooman on
Intel's Celeron cut down range of desktop processors will see their level two caches go to 512K, it has been revealed. These 512K Celerons will be based on Intel's 65 nanometre Cedar Mill processor family.

Celerons to come later this year include the 355, a 3.33GHz processor, but that will only have 256K cache. The 355 number will stay when the process is migrated, so we'll have 355s and 351 Celerons by the second half of next year which are different sorts of beast altogether.
These new chips will retain the same numbers as future 90 nanometre processors, and will continue to use the LGA 775 socket and a 533MHz front side bus.
