Pentium E2000 to replace the E1000 Posted on 14/11/2006 at 09:05 by Marc
According to HKEPC quoting a roadmap of Intel, the Santa Clara giant would have left the Pentium E1000 and replaced it with the Pentium E2000. The Pentium E1000, initially scheduled to be released during the second quarter 2007, is a mono core version clocked from 1.4 to 1.8 GHz and with 1 MB of the L2 cache of the current Core 2 Duo. The same chip was also supposed to be used for the Celeron of the sequence "400".
This version of the chip will finally be only reserved to the Celeron and this is the Pentium E2000 that will be released. If the cache is also of 1MB, the processors will be dual cores. Two versions will be released in Q3:
- Pentium E2140: 1.6 GHz, 1 MB of L2, FSB800 - Pentium E2160: 1.8 GHz, 1 MB of L2, FSB800
We can only be delighted to see Intel restricting the mono core processors line…now the only thing left is to know when the first Celeron dual core will be released!
