According to leaked information cited by Fudzilla
, Intel plans to introduce its first Arrandale-based mobile Celeron processor in the second quarter of next year. It is reported that the new Celeron P4500 will be built on a 32nm process, feature a dual-core design with a clock frequency of 1.86GHz, and 2MB of L2 cache. If the rumors hold true, Turbo Boost and Hyperthreading will be disabled to keep the cost down.
There are few other details, though Fudzilla speculates that one last 45nm Celeron (the T3300) will precede the Celeron P4500. The Penryn-based T3300 will contain two cores that operate at 2.0GHz, 1MB of cache, and an 800MHz FSB. This chip should launch on January 17 for $86, which could be an indication of a general price range for the 32nm P4500.
