  Intel Celeron 266 MHz [flip chip]   []   []   [hide data]   [close image viewer]  
The first Celeron (codenamed Covington) is essentially a 266MHz Pentium II manufactured without any secondary cache at all. Although clocked at 266 or 300MHz (substantially higher than the old Pentium MMX), the cacheless Celerons are a good deal slower than the parts they were designed to replace. Substantial numbers were sold on first release, largely on the strength of the Intel name, but the Celeron quickly achieved a poor reputation both in the trade press and among computer professionals. Many people referred to it unkindly but accurately enough as the Slugeron, Celery or Deceleron. The initial market interest faded rapidly in the face of its poor performance and with sales at a very low level, Intel felt obliged to develop a substantially faster replacement as soon as possible.
