Intel will release a new generation of mobile processors, which based on
Merom, for the value market. The new processor family is so called Celeron-M
500, where the first model Celeron-M 520 will be released in Q1 2007. Celeron-M
520 is the only model to be released in Jan 2007. It is a single core processor
at 1.6GHz, having 1MB L2 Cache and 533MHz FSB and priced at $ 134. The second
model, Celeron-M 530 (1.73 GHz/1MB L2/533MHz FSB), is only to be released in Q2
2007. Both are based on Socket M interface. The Socket P models of Celeron-M
500, which support Santa Rosa platform, have to be waited until Q3 2007.

A report from
DigiTimes
revealed that Intel is also expected to introduce a lineup of 64-bit dual-core
Celeron M processors to the notebook market in the first quarter of 2007. Keeping its pricing edge with 64-bit mobile Sempron CPUs, AMD
still has one more quarter to leverage its advantage. If the price gap
between Intel and AMD mobile CPUs becomes narrower, it will benefit Intel and
the strategic push of “unofficial”
processors, which don’t appear in its original roadmaps, will also play an
important role.
