Intel Celeron 2.0 GHz Review

By Ryan "Speedy" Wissman :  November 8, 2002

Performance

The CPU competition is made up of Pentium 4-1.8A GHz (512K), Pentium 4-1.6 and 1.8 GHz (256K) and Athlon XP 1600+ and 1900+ processors, each running on a high-performance PC2700 platform. Our Intel Pentium 4 system takes the popular ASUS P4S533 (SiS645DX), and the AMD platform uses the ASUS A7V333 (KT333) motherboard. Both are outfitted with 512-MB of high-end Crucial PC2700 DDR. As we are dealing with entry-level processors, these two rigs use a GeForce4 Ti 4200 128 MB card, which should provide a nice base for the 3D video tests.

Windows XP Pro is the operating system of choice, and our benchmark list includes a wide range of system and gaming tests. These include PCMark 2002, along with popular 3D game tests like Unreal Tournament 2003, 3DMark 2001SE, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Quake 3, Comanche 4 and Jedi Knight II. Our default game benchmark setting is 1024x768x32.

To illustrate both performance sides of the Celeron 2.0 GHz, we included the 3.0 GHz overclock in addition to the 2.0 GHz benchmarks in all of our performance tests.
