Intel’s Rounds Out CPU Lines With 64 Bit Addressing

Intel announced this week that, with the latest Celeron D processors, its entire CPU line from servers to desktops now support its 64-bit addressing technology.

The Santa Clara, Calif. company announced it is shipping the Celeron D 351. Meant to be a low-cost desktop CPU that supports Intel’s Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) -- 64-bit memory addressing -- it is designed to be combined with Intel’s 915 or 910 Express chipsets, Intel said in a statement.

The 351 runs at 3.2 GHz and features 256 KB of Level 2 cache and a 533-MHz system bus. It also supports the Execute Disable Bit technology that is meant to block one of the most common types of system security exploit.

A second new CPU, the Intel Celeron D 350 has similar specs -- including a 3.2 GHz clock speed, 256 KB of Level 2 cache and a 533 MHz system bus -- but lacks support for EM64T. Additionally, the 351 is available in the LGA775 package, whereas the 950 is in the mPGA478 package. The 350 works with the 910 chipset as well as with 845 and 865 chipsets.

Finally, Intel said it is now shipping Intel Celeron D processor models 346, 341, 336, 331 and 326 in the LGA775 package, also with support for EM64T and the Execute Disable Bit. The processors cost between $73 to $127 in quantities of 1,000.
