466MHz Celeron launched

Intel today announced the release of the latest version of its Celeron processor and said a new chipset will follow in June -- both aimed at low-cost PCs.

Intel is counting on the new 466MHz processor and 810 chipset to increase business in low-end computers selling at or near $1500, according to Paul Otellini, executive vice president for Intel's Architecture Business Group. "It's a large and growing market," he said.

The fastest of the Celeron range, the 466MHz processor joins 333MHz, 366MHz, 400MHz and 433MHz versions.

The company's 810DC100 chipset, scheduled to be available in June, is designed for high-end computing and is capable of interfacing with 4MB of optional display cache, Intel said. Intel said the 810 chipset uses several new innovations applicable to low-cost PCs. New Direct AGP (accelerated graphics port) and DVM (dynamic video memory) technologies provide high quality video, the vendor said.

The chipset will also offer new capabilities, including Instantly Available PC technology and Intel Accelerated Hub Architecture, which doubles the size of the communications channel within the chipset for better multimedia performance, the company said.

The new processor and chipset should set the standard for use in the next 16 to 18 months, an analyst said.

"They (Intel) will make $100 to $1500 PCs real for corporations, not just for consumers, said Rob Enderle, a senior vice president at Giga Information Group, an IT consulting firm.
