Default Intel Celeron Waves Good Bye

According to reports coming from Far East, Intel is getting ready to simplify its offering into Atom, Pentium and Core brands. You've guessed it right, no more Celeron.

Legendary Celeron debuted in April 1998 as Celeron 266 and 300 [Covington core], but cache-less [no L2 cache] processor suffered from terrible performance and Intel was told a clear no by OEMs of the time. The answer was processor codenamed Mendocino, which featured 128KB L2 cache running at full rate. Processor known as Celeron 300A became the first massively overclocked processor, given that it had no issues running at 100MHz Front Side Bus [remember that one?], instead of default 66MHz one. This was achieved simply by changing the FSB from 66MHz to 100MHz and the end result was: you buy 300MHz, get 50% more for free [450MHz].
