Intel pushes 65nm Celeron and E2000 series

By Justin Mann on January 30, 2007, 11:32 AM
Intel will be pushing up the launch of their 65nm “value-class” processors, namely the Celeron 400 series and the Pentium E2000 dual-core series, which is part of their overall plan in exceeding a 90% production ratio for 65nm this year. This is important to them and anyone who uses their CPUs, since while smaller processes mean lower cost per chip, it often means much higher failure rates in the early days as they refine production.

The schedule push might harm motherboard manufacturers or retailers, who will have to struggle with quickly-changing standards that may leave older products behind. Intel is already looking to have 45nm CPUs available, in small quantity, by the end of this year.
