Intel Celeron (Mendocino) microprocessor family
Celeron processors based on Mendocino core were released in 1998 in SEPP (Slot1) and plastic PGA (Socket 370) packages, but already in 1999 the SEPP package was phased out by Intel in favor of PPGA package. Plastic PGA (socket 370) CPUs were cheaper to manufacture, and moving to new proprietary socket allowed Intel to further separate high-end and budget processor markets. All Celeron processors with Mendocino core were manufactured using 0.25 micron technology and had 128 KB on-chip L2 cache running at full processor speed. The processors in PPGA package were produced at speeds ranging from 300 to 533 MHz, and processors in SEPP package were produced at speeds 300 - 433 MHz.
