New Intel Pentium processor (Conroe-L)
I guess Intel Pentium line isn't dead after all. It will be used in Intelís value desktop line and will be built on the new Conroe-L based processors. Unlike Intelís Core 2 Duo Conroe products, the new Conroe-L processors will not carry the Core name. Instead Intel is reviving the Pentium and Celeron brands for Conroe-L based products.
Intel Conroe-L Pentium:
E1060 1.80GHz 800MHz 1MB
E1040 1.60GHz 800MHz 1MB
E1020 1.40GHz 800MHz 1MB
The Pentium Conroe-L lineup will carry the E1000 series processor number. Three Pentium E1000 models will be available initially. These models include the Pentium E1060, E1040 and E1020 clocked at 1.80, 1.60 and 1.40 GHz respectively. All Pentium E1000 series processors will have an 800 MHz front-side bus with 1MB of L2 cache. Intel Enhanced Memory 64 Technology and Execute Disable Bit are the only technologies featured on Pentium E1000 processors. Intel Virtualization, HyperThreading and Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology are not supported.
