Intel "Conroe-L" Performance Unveiled

DailyTech

Intel cancelled the single-core Pentium E1000-series before it saw the light of day for the dual-core Pentium E2100-series. The single-core Conroe-L core that formed the cancelled Pentium E1000-series lives on in the upcoming Celeron 400-series. Intel expects to launch two Celeron 400-series models next quarter, the Celeron 440 and 430. These new Celeron models feature 2.0 GHz and 1.8 GHz clock speeds, respectively.

Like a few posters on that article mention, an X2 3600+ would still seem the ultimate low cost cpu.

Are these cores actually a single core die or are they taken from the failed dual core siblings bin?

That super-pi time seems alarmingly slow for 1m, yes i'm running at double the clockspeed of the 430 model but still i get there in 13 seconds odd. I'd of expected a core based chip at 2GHz to be at least sub 30 seconds and more like sub 25 seconds. I suppose its short on cache as ever. 35 seconds for the 1.8GHz and 32 seconds for the 2GHz is slow
If they were reject core 2 bins then they would have to be a serious reject as its not just a core missing but at least 1.5 megs if not 3.5 megs of cache as well

Well the reasons for low cache may not be entirely to do with them being rejects, that could just be intel making sure performance is well and truly crippled.

I'm thinking that a few will be rejects but it might well be that the rest where intentionally crippled. It will be interesting to see how well they perform when overclocked and if the other core / cache can be unlocked, which is probably impossible, but would be rather cool
