Intel to continue selling really cheap E2140 CPU

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2007/07...ng_e2140_cpu/1

Intel is to keep their lowest Core 2 CPU, the E2140 a little longer and further drop the price! Bargain of the year? Quite possibly.

Cheap as Chips! *bah-dum-tish*

Do Celeron's still exist then, or is E2xxx just a fancy way to hide the budget-CPU branding?

Rumors have it that the Celeron will exist in the future. But it doesn't really make sense. There is no way for them to fit in but as a single core processor. I thought that E2160 was already existent? Overclockers and everyone else is selling them.

I think the fancing rebranding. Celeron was always associated with crap ("Celery is full of water and takes more effort to eat then you get back, just like a Celeron")

This may be good for consumers in the short term, but if AMD gets pushed out any further...well, I don't think VIA counts as reasonable competition, so that'd leave Intel dominating, a bad position even for Intel fanboys.

Hi all,
I'm confused when it comes to the E2xxx series CPU from Intel.
Many considers it a cheaper / cut down version of the Core 2 Duo processor, which I too though of initially.
But when I went to the Intel website, it is listed under 'Intel Pentium Dual Core', similar to the D series of CPU.
So is the E2xxx really a continuation of the D series, since it shares some similarities (same FSB, but less cache),
or is it really a Core 2 Duo processor ?

As far as I know it's Core 2 based. To be honest, I've got to phone up Intel and get one in.

The Celeron 4 series is all Conroe-L based, so they are single-core Core 2 based CPUs with 512kb of L2 cache and from what I've read they overclock like crazy for really cheap CPUs.
