Intel released a 64-bit processor for mainstream/cheaper PCs on Monday, putting the company a month ahead of rival AMD, which is expected to come out with a chip for the same market in July.
Intel’s Celeron takes the 64-bit route

well thats bit misleading.
Get Pentium Ms (the next gen) 64 bit so they are ready for apple to eat them up like pac-man.
I think tiger on ibooks/powerbooks would classify as a market for 64 bit mobile cpus.
What part of the article is misleading?
Merom’s scheduled for mid-2006, I believe.
Intel has no advantage as low end athlon 64s are still cheaper than Celerons.
AMD has got the performence in the cheap end for now, but when Intel moves away from the P4 arch and into the new stuff in the works things will change.
Intel is a month ahead of who?
Does the one month ahead of release cycle mean it’s a better cpu?I think not.AMD has a very promising dual core series for the future and now,X2 4200+…X24800+ Highest overall performance at a lower power consumption.
I just wish chips would stop changing so signifigantly every 3 – 6 months so I could at least catch up to all the changes
Here is another link that shows the 64-bit ready Sempron:
