Intel goes aggressive at low-end

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
***...Erm Intel..No. Seems a little silly IMO. Thats just my take though.

Quote:
IN A MOVE TO FURTHER HURT VIA and AMD'S low-end, Intel is marketing an extended range of low end parts to target the C7 and Geode LX/NX range.

These chips are clearly not destined for desktop computers, but rather the sorts of things that Mini ITX Boards have increasingly become successful in, such as web kiosks, medical instruments and in-vehicle applications, which generally like low power and fanless operation for the sake of reliability.

VIA and AMD have enjoyed significant success in these growing markets, where PC compatibility is seen as a strength for adding computer functionality without the stress of coders having to learn a new processor architecture.
Quote:
The Geode LX has seen a very high number of design wins since its release, and VIA may actually be in a position to make C7s in reasonable volumes one day, so Intel is retaliating for 2007 with a re-release of its greatest hits from older days in the laptop market.

ULV Celeron M 600MHz (Banias, 512KB L2 cache) - 7W (fanless)
Celeron M 800, 900MHz, 1GHz (Shelton, 0KB L2 cache) - around 13W (not fanless)
Mobile Celeron 1.2GHz (Northwood, 256KB L2 cache) - around 20W (not fanless)
Yes, you read that right - a 1.2GHz Northwood. This must be the lowest speed Netburst release ever?

for the purpose (embedded systems), a good idea. Don't need any faster.

For its purpose, its a great way to outlast tossed equipment not suitable for desktops anymore.
