processor Intel Corporation's trade name for its family of
Pentium II microprocessors meant for use in low-end
The Celeron is constructed on the 0.25 micron Deschutes base.
Clock rates of 266, 300 and 333 MHz are supported. It is
built on the same daughterboard as the Pentium II without
the black plastic case and heat sink. Four Celeron models
are in production as of October 1998. The 266 and 300 MHz
models are essentially Pentium II CPUs without the Level 2
cache RAM. The 300A and 333 MHz Celerons include 128k of
Level 2 cache.
A special mounting bracket on the motherboard is used to
secure the Celeron in place in its standard 242-pin Slot 1
socket. Intel calls the caseless design SEPP (Single Edge
Processor Package) to differentiate it from the Pentium II SEC
(Single Edge Cartridge). Some believe that the real purpose
for the different mounting configurations is to prevent users
from placing lower cost processors onto Pentium II
