SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 29, 2000 - Intel Corporation today introduced new Intelr CeleronT processors manufactured on the company's advanced 0.18-micron technology, which enables greater speeds, higher-volume manufacturing and lower overall production costs. The new Intel Celeron processors at 600 and 566 MHz are Intel's fastest processors ever for sub-$1,000 PCs.

"Intel is keeping its foot on the gas in the value PC market segment," said Pat Gelsinger, vice president and general manager, Desktop Products Group. "We launched a new Celeron processor in the first week of the year and are now adding faster versions based on our 0.18-micron technology. Several more Celeron processor family members are due before June, reinforcing our leadership position in the value PC market segment."

Intel Celeron processors -- the second-highest selling PC processors in the world behind the Pentiumr III processor family -- provide consumers with a great way to get on the Internet for under $1,000.

Product Features The new Intel Celeron processors feature Internet Streaming SIMD extensions, advanced microprocessor instructions which combine with faster CPU speeds to deliver a significant performance boost over previous versions. The new processors are produced using Intel's low-cost FC-PGA (flip-chip pin grid array) packaging and continue to support 128 KB of on-chip level 2 cache along with a 66 MHz system bus.

Pricing and Availability Intel Celeron processors are now available in volume at 600, 566, 533, 500 and 466 MHz. In 1,000-unit quantities, the Intel Celeron processors at 600 MHz and 566 MHz are priced at $181 and $167, respectively. Intel, the world's largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at
