Intel shipping Celeron dual core processors

Intel is shipping a dual-core Celeron processor, the first low-end desktop processor from the company to ship with two cores.

The 1.6GHz Celeron Dual-Core E1200 processor is based on Intel’s Core microprocessor architecture and is manufactured using a 65-nanometer process. The chip has 512K bytes of cache and uses an 800MHz front-side bus to connect with main memory and other components inside the PC.

Intel is selling the Celeron Dual-Core E1200 chips for US$53 each, in quantities of 1,000 units.

The release of the E1200 underscores how prevalent dual-core chips have become. The Celeron family is the low end of Intel’s mainstream processor range, below the mid-range Pentium family and top-end Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad lines. The release of the Celeron E1200 means Intel now has multi-core processors in each of these product families. (link)
