Intel confirms 64-bit Celeron scheme

Intel today publicly confirmed its AMD64-like 64-bit addressing system, EM64T, will be brought to the company's budget Celeron processor line "this year". The chip maker also revealed that its dual-core Pentium 4 processor, 'Smithfield', is now in production. Speaking to reporters ahead of the opening tomorrow of Intel Developer Forum, the company's Industrial Technology Programs Director, Frank Spindler, said EM64T would make it to the Celeron family sooner rather than later.
