Intel adjusts processor roadmap for Celerons

Intel has adjusted their processor roadmap again this year, though this time only for the value-class (i.e. Celeron) processors. While the king of the hill CPUs from Intel are all about focusing on multi core and higher bus speeds, the Celeron lines are going to largely remain single core throughout the year and into 2007. Though dual-core Celerons are already in the market in limited quantities, mass availability isn't planned for quite some time. There are also no Celerons currently planned that will be beefed up to the 800MHz FSB, still relying on the 533 that they have been using for some time. Likely, until 1066 is in common use, it will stay that way, and until dual core Pentiums take a large share of the market, Celerons will also remain largely single core.
