    PowerLeap Announces Adapter to use the New Intel Celeron and Pentium 4 CPUs in Legacy Pentium 4 systems

    Upgrade Socket 423-based P4 to New Intel socket 478 1.8GHz Celeron and beyond

    Technology Editors

    MILLSTONE NJ (BUSINESS WIRE) - May 29, 2002 - Today PowerLeap is pleased to announce the release of the PL-P4 upgrade solution for existing socket 423 Pentium 4 systems to use Intel's latest 1.8GHz Celeron as well as other socket 478 CPUs (currently up to 2.4GHz). PowerLeap believes this product to be timely as the supply of 423-pin Pentium 4 CPUs continues to dwindle and important since there are many manufacturers and distributors with socket 423 motherboards still in inventory.

    "This product has appeal to system builders and solution providers that have older socket 423 motherboards and systems in stock. It will also provide options for businesses and consumers with older P4 systems in the coming year," comments Channel Sales Manager, Craig Cheetham.

    PowerLeap is expected to begin shipping the PL-P4 adapter on June 17 following its official introduction at the Computex show in Taipei, Taiwan (June 3-7). The retail price will be around $35 (US). Optional bundling of the adapter with the Celeron 1.8GHz and Pentium 4 2.0GHz are likely.

    Founded in 1996, PowerLeap is the leader in the CPU upgrade industry - supplying approximately 80% of the worldwide market. PowerLeap products are sold direct to consumers and businesses, as well as through resellers, distributors, and OEM customers in 40 countries under the PowerLeap brand as well as other major brand names. PowerLeap has a full line of CPU upgrades for 486, Pentium, Pentium II, Celeron, Pentium III, and Pentium 4-based systems - including the popular PL-iP3/T which upgrades PII and PIII slot-1 systems to 1.4GHz.

    It'd be nice if Intel wouldn't change their sockets or alter them (Socket 370 for example). That's the nice thing about AMD: they take a long time before switching socket platforms (Socket 7 anyone?)
