View Full Version : Pentium4 Celerons?

Do the new Pentium4 Celerons work in any 478 board?
Intel Launched Celeron (Willamette-128) and More... (http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/story.html?id=1021530248)
So, Intel yesterday announced its first Celeron processor based on the "new" Willamette-128 core. As you should remember, this core is a cut down version of the 0.18micron Pentium 4 Willamette that is why I used the word "new" in inverted commas. Despite the recent rumors the maximum clock frequency of the new Celeron processor is now equal to 1.7GHz, and not 1.8GHz. In fact, Intel announced only one model working at 1.7GHz. The slower models with 1.6GHz and 1.5GHz core clock will undoubtedly be shipping, although they will not take so much air.
As you remember, the new Celeron processors differ from PGA478 Pentium 4 (Willamette) only by the L2 cache size (128KB against 256KB) and marking. So, they should work in the same Socket478 mainboards as Pentium 4 does (these are the boards based on i850/i850E, i845, SiS645/650, VIA P4X333/266/A, etc.).

i think i saw an estimated price for $100. if your going to buy/build a cel 1.7 on a 478 mobo its a waste of money.
the 1.6a is around $130 right now and w/ any decent board you can oc it to 2ghz easy.
even if you dont oc, its a much faster performing cpu than the celeron. the 1.7 cel will basically be so that emachines,dell, etc. can sell cheap "1.7Ghz" systems on existing cheap mobos.
