Intel heeft de release van de 433MHz Celeron gepland op 15 Maart, aldus dit nieuwsbericht op ZDNet:
Following closely on the expected late-February release of its 450MHz and 500MHz Pentium III, the Santa Clara, Calif., company plans to ship a new 433MHz Celeron on March 15, according to sources. The processor was originally scheduled for release in the second quarter.
A 466MHz Celeron is expected to follow later in the first half.
Both new chips are expected to utilize 66MHz system bus architectures, sources said. They will join the 366MHz and 400MHz desktop and 266MHz and 300MHz mobile Celerons introduced in January.
Coinciding with the new 433MHz chip, Intel (INTC) will drop prices on existing Celerons by 15 to 20 percent, sources said. A 400MHz Celeron using Intel's 370 pin plastic pin grid array package, for example, would fall in price from $158 to about $120, the sources said.
