Celeron D

A version of Intel's Celeron CPUs introduced in 2004. Celeron D chips are made using the 90 nm strained silicon process and include various internal enhancements. Note that Celeron D chips are not dual core even though they use the D designation as do Pentium D dual core models. See Celeron and Pentium D.

Other features include Intel Pentium 4 or Celeron D processors, Gigabit Ethernet LAN, 533 MHz or 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM and a range of SATA hard drive sizes.
Now it has been relaunched with a set of new processors called Celeron D.
New manufacturing techniques have squeezed more and faster transistors into less space and a design revamp has introduced a host of new features that make the Celeron D produce significantly higher performance.
A faster bus means better performance and the Celeron D bus is 33 per cent faster than the old Celeron.
The bottom line is that the Celeron D is still the processor of choice if you're on a budget, but now it has been given a welcome performance boost.
