Intel® Celeron processor at 533, 500, 466, 433, and 400 expands
Intel processing performance into the sub-$1200 market segment. The
Intel Celeron processors provide power to handle the internet,
educational programs, interactive 3D games, and productivity
applications. The Intel Celeron processors at 533, 500, 466, 433,
and 400 MHz, include integrated L2 cache 128Kbyte. The core for the
533, 500, 466, 433, and 400 MHz processors have 19M transistors due
to the addition of the integrated L2 cache.
All the Intel Celeron processors are based on Intel's advanced
0.25 micron CMOS process technology. All the Intel Celeron
processors are available in the plastic pin grid array (P.P.G.A.)
form factor. The P.P.G.A. form factor is compatible with the 370 pin
socket and provides new potential for OEMs to lower system design
cost as well as more flexibility to design system form factors. In
addition, the 433 and 400 MHz for OEMs are available in the single
edge processor package (S.E.P.P.) enabling ease of design, as well
as cost efficiency. In both packages, Intel Celeron processors
deliver quality, reliability, and compatibility. They offer great
performance for today's most widely-used office applications and for
accessing the internet. Intel Celeron processors are backed by more
than 25 years of Intel experience engineering and manufacturing high
quality, reliable microprocessors.

- Includes Intel MMX media enhancement technology.
- Offers Dynamic Execution technology.
- Includes a 32Kbyte (16Kbyte/16Kbyte) non-blocking, level-one
cache that provides fast access to heavily used data.
- Intel Celeron processors at 533, 500, 466, 433, and 400 MHz
include integrated L2 cache 128Kbyte.
- All the Intel Celeron processors utilize the Intel P6
microarchitecture's multi-transaction system bus at 66MHz. The
500, 466, 433, and 400 MHz processors utilize the Intel P6
microarchitecture's multi-transaction system bus with the
addition of the L2 cache interface.
Microarchitecture Dynamic Execution Technology
Multiple Branch Prediction: Predicts program execution
through several branches, accelerating the flow of work to the
MMX Media Enhancement Technology
Dataflow Analysis: Creates an optimized, reordered schedule
of instructions by analyzing data dependencies between instructions.
Speculative Execution: Carries out instructions speculatively
and based on this optimized schedule, ensures that the processors

Intel MMX technology includes new instructions and data types
that allow applications to achieve a new level of performance.
Intels MMX technology is designed as a set of basic,
general-purpose integer instructions that are easily applied to the
needs of a wide diversity of multimedia and communications
applications. The highlights of the technology are:
- Single Instruction, Multiple Data (SIMD) technique
- 57 new instructions
- Eight 64-bit wide MMX technology registers
- Four new data types
and Performance Monitoring Features
- All the Intel Celeron processors are available in the plastic
pin grid array (PPGA) package. The PPGA package is compatible
with the 370 pin socket and provides more flexibility to design
low cost systems by enabling lower profile and smaller systems
and providing the potential for reducing costs of processor
retention and cooling solutions. Like the Intel Celeron
processors that utilize S.E.P.P., the Intel Celeron processors
that use P.P.G.A., feature a P6-microarchitecture-based core
processor on a single-sided substrate without BSRAM componentry.
- The Intel Celeron Processors at 433 and 400 MHz are available
in the single edge processor package (S.E.P.P.), which is
similar to the single edge contact (S.E.C.) cartridge form
factor that the Pentium III processor
uses, and maintains compatibility with the 242-contact slot
connector. This packaging technology features a
P6-microarchitecture-based core processor on a single-sided
substrate without BSRAM componentry. It does not have a thermal
plate or cover. The 0.25 micron manufacturing process, which
reduces processor heat, enables the Intel Celeron processor to
use a smaller heat sink. Also, the Intel Celeron processor uses
newer Retention Mechanisms that are designed to fit the S.E.P.P.
- The system bus supports multiple outstanding transactions to
increase bandwidth availability.
- Incorporates separate 16Kbyte level-one caches, one for
instructions and one for data.
- 533, 500, 466, 433, and 400 MHz parts have a 128Kbyte unified,
non-blocking, level-two cache that improves performance by
reducing the average memory access time and providing fast
access to recently used instructions and data. Performance is
enhanced through a dedicated 64-bit cache bus. The speed of the
level-two cache scales with the processor core frequency.
- A pipelined Floating-Point Unit (FPU) for supporting the
32-bit and 64-bit formats specified in IEEE standard 754, as
well as an 80-bit format.
- Parity-protected address/request and response system bus
signals with a retry mechanism for high data integrity and
- Built-in Self Test (BIST), providing single stuck-at fault
coverage of the microcode and large logic arrays, as well as
testing of the instruction cache, data cache, Translation
Lookaside Buffers (TLBs) and ROMs.

mechanism, enables testing of the Intel Celeron processor and
system connections through a standard interface.

The Intel® Celeron processor may contain design defects
or errors known as errata. Current characterized errata are
available upon request.
