    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.

    You are now a bright orange weird person!

    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.

    It's definitely based on the Core microarchitecture.

    It kills what i've got, and its so cheap. I'll take one of these into consideration.

    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.
