Intel Introduces 64-bit Celeron D Chips

Intel Corp. on Monday said its latest Celeron D processors feature 64-bit capability, which enables value computers with technologies originally found in workstation and server processors. Intel’s Extended Memory 64 Technology may eventually boost performance of computers running appropriate chips provided that the software is able to take advantage of it.

A family of Intel’s value processors with 64-bit and Execute Disable Bit support includes Intel Celeron D processors 351, 346, 341, 336, 331 and 326 that work at 3.20GHz, 3.06GHz, 2.93GHz, 2.80GHz, 2.66GHz and 2.53GHz. Just like their brethren without EM64T, the new Intel Celeron D are equipped with 256KB L2 cache. The new microprocessors require a mainboard that sports 533MHz processor system bus, is equipped with Socket 775 and has a special BIOS that features EM64T.
