The Celeron Slot One platform will be dead in the water by June along with other Slot One platforms.
The move is partly to do with new designs similar to the iMac as well as the end of PC "legacy" systems which Intel and its customers foresee.
This follows confirmation by senior vice president Paul Otellini, at the Intel Developer Forum last February, that the chip giant is moving to a socket design.
Last week, we reported that a 100MHz FSB Celeron will arrive early next year with Streaming SIMD and that the 815 chipset has been replaced by the 810E chipset.
