PC maker confirms 775-pin Celeron D

Even as Socket 478 versions launch


Even as world+dog is today reporting on the arrival of Intel's 90nm Socket 478 Celeron D processors - we covered it three days ago, natch, after spotting the then as-yet-unannounced chips on Intel's price list - it has emerged that the chip giant is preparing Socket T versions of the new CPUs.

Confirmation of the 775-pin Celeron Ds comes courtesy of small form-factor barebones PC maker Shuttle. This week, it introduced a Grantsdale-based XPC, the BS81P, as we reported yesterday.

Shuttle's spec mentions the new LGA-775 Pentium 4s, which Intel officially launched on 21 June, but it also notes that the BS81P's motherboard will support "Socket 775 Pentium 4 and Celeron 800/533MHz FSB". The specs for Shuttle's other Socket T XPC, the BS83GS, say the same thing. Both machines use Intel's new i915G chipset.

According to roadmaps seen in April, a 775-pin 2.8GHz Celeron D - model number 335 - is expected to ship this month. It had been assumed that the part would arrive alongside the Socket 478 versions announced this week, so unless the part is launched next week with the 64-bit 'Nocona' Xeon CPU, it may have been put back until Q3.

A 2.93GHz Socket T Celeron D is expected mid-Q3, followed by a 3.06GHz version at the start of Q4. ®

    In brief Thieves operating for the North Korean government made off with almost $400m in digicash last year in a concerted attack to steal and launder as much currency as they could.

    A report from blockchain biz Chainalysis found that attackers were going after investment houses and currency exchanges in a bid to purloin funds and send them back to the Glorious Leader's coffers. They then use mixing software to make masses of micropayments to new wallets, before consolidating them all again into a new account and moving the funds.

    Bitcoin used to be a top target but Ether is now the most stolen currency, say the researchers, accounting for 58 per cent of the funds filched. Bitcoin accounted for just 20 per cent, a fall of more than 50 per cent since 2019 - although part of the reason might be that they are now so valuable people are taking more care with them.

  • Tesla Full Self-Driving videos prompt California's DMV to rethink policy on accidents

    In brief California’s Department of Motor Vehicles said it’s “revisiting” its opinion of whether Tesla’s so-called Full Self-Driving feature needs more oversight after a series of videos demonstrate how the technology can be dangerous.

    “Recent software updates, videos showing dangerous use of that technology, open investigations by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the opinions of other experts in this space,” have made the DMV think twice about Tesla, according to a letter sent to California’s Senator Lena Gonzalez (D-Long Beach), chair of the Senate’s transportation committee, and first reported by the LA Times.

    Tesla isn’t required to report the number of crashes to California’s DMV unlike other self-driving car companies like Waymo or Cruise because it operates at lower levels of autonomy and requires human supervision. But that may change after videos like drivers having to take over to avoid accidentally swerving into pedestrians crossing the road or failing to detect a truck in the middle of the road continue circulating.

  • Alien life on Super-Earth can survive longer than us due to long-lasting protection from cosmic rays

    Laser experiments show their magnetic fields shielding their surfaces from radiation last longer

    Life on Super-Earths may have more time to develop and evolve, thanks to their long-lasting magnetic fields protecting them against harmful cosmic rays, according to new research published in Science.

    Space is a hazardous environment. Streams of charged particles traveling at very close to the speed of light, ejected from stars and distant galaxies, bombard planets. The intense radiation can strip atmospheres and cause oceans on planetary surfaces to dry up over time, leaving them arid and incapable of supporting habitable life. Cosmic rays, however, are deflected away from Earth, however, since it’s shielded by its magnetic field.

    Now, a team of researchers led by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) believe that Super-Earths - planets that are more massive than Earth but less than Neptune - may have magnetic fields too. Their defensive bubbles, in fact, are estimated to stay intact for longer than the one around Earth, meaning life on their surfaces will have more time to develop and survive.
