Solved: Intel Celeron Vs. AMD Sempron Benchmark Scores

Q: Solved: Intel Celeron Vs. AMD Sempron Benchmark Scores

I was surprised to see here that the Intel Celeron D 330 2.66 GHz processor benchmark scores are lower than the AMD Sempron 3100+ 1.80 GHz processor benchmark scores.

I recently resurrected and upgraded 2 older desktops.

Both have 2 GB DDR PC2700 RAM and have an UDMA/ATA100 7200 rpm hard drive and have the same antivirus program running.

The Intel processor has a 533 MHz FSB and the AMD processor has an 800 MHz FSB.

The desktop with the AMD processor appears to be the faster and more snappier of the two.

Is the higher FSB of the AMD processor the deciding factor, or is it something else?

I am still in the looking-at-a-new-computer mode. I keep thinking I must stick with highest Athlon or Pentium 4, but how do the Celeron and Sempron stack up against them? Do I really need to get the best? I need what's good for 'net use, basic use, and photo editing/organizing use--no plan for game use.

i think it is either the motherboard or videocard because i know that the visointek 9600 is underclocked at 324 mhz core and 202.5 memory but can it really make that much of a difference because people with the same ram, similiar video card and processor have scored in the 30,000- 40,000 range yet i can barely score 20,000

Hey all,
Just built a new comp and I thought this thing would scream but I'm only getting a whimper

AMD FX-62 Dual Core CPU
1.0 GB DDR2 PC3200 (I believe its 3200)
ASUS M2A-VM-HDMI Motherboard
Ultra X-Connect Titanium w/ UV Blue 500Watt ATX PSU
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB Hard Drive (Serial ATA II, 7,200 RPM, 8MB)
Haven't done the video card yet
This thing should move like lightning right?

Something about this thing is mega slow to load programs and such.
I just used CrystalMark to get some Benchmark scores and my CPU ranked a bit lower than an AMD FX-60 (19442 vs. 25188) but my HDD was piss poor with a score of 4738 vs others out there ranking between 2 and 4 MILLION!!
Now my HDD is in a constant churning state, ya know always sounds like its struggling and grinding away when running programs especially ones like adaware or spybot that scan, not super loud but it bugs me. Is this an indication that is a piece of junk?

Is there any other way to determine if its is my HDD that is the weakest link in my new computer besides getting another and popping it in and are there any other good benchmark programs out there that can confirm this for me. Also, why would my CPU be scoring lower than a lower model? Maybe its just that CrystalMark isn't reliable.
Also, I'm running some EMSA Disk Check Program right now to try that out and see what happens

I recently purchased a Dell Precision 5520 with the following hardware: i7-7820HQ, 32GB RAM, M.2 PCIE 512GB, Quadro M1200. I noticed performance issues with the laptop - simple things like a lag sometimes between when I typed on the keyboard and when things actually appeared on screen. Generally slow performance with simple tools like PgAdmin, etc. Subsequently, I ran benchmark tests (PassMark, Geekbench, and others) and I find that my CPU scores are dismal - about a 1/4 of what they should be. I did a couple of things to isolate the problem: (1) updated the bios and switched off sidestep, (2) complete reformat and reinstall of the latest recovery image from Dell, (3) all windows 10 updates and driver updates through command center, (4) configured power option in Windows to "High Performance" and plugged in the a/c adapter, (5) removed all peripherals - basically back to stock, out-of-the-box factory image except the Intel Sidestep setting in the bios. Again, no improvement - low CPU benchmark scores (Passmark CPU score - 2424). See attached image for details. I'm not sure what else to do? Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

I'll start off with mine. The first image is my score, using the default settings, and the second is with all applicable settings maxed out.

In addition, the effect of having crossfire enabled can be clearly seen in the second image, with a final score approximately twice that where crossfire is disabled.

I put a new processor in a computer here at work yesterday. Previously, the computer had a K6/233, and I replaced it with a K6-2/300.

I was surprised to note that the benchmark scores (I used WinTune for the Benchmark test) for the new, "faster" processor were lower than the "slower" one

CPU Integer................... -2%
CPU Floating Point............ +29%
2D Video...................... +2%
Direct 3D..................... +12%
Open GL....................... -15%
Memory........................ -38%
Cached Disk................... +18%
Uncached Disk................. +1%

So what's going on here? Why would the CPU Integer and memory transfer scores go down with the new processor? Did I missed a configuration in the BIOS, or could this processor just not be suited for the motherboard? Specifications on the motherboard are at: http://www.qdigrp.com/eng/products/tx1bp.htm

Thanks for any insight, as this is rather perplexing to me.

Now I'm really not trying to start an Intel vs. AMD debate, but I have a question about buying a new PC. I hear lots of good stuff about Sempron - is the Sempron the equivalent of a Celeron? If it is and I decide to spend the extra cash to move up to an Athlon or P4, are there any KEY differences between Athlon and P4 if I am using the system for MS Office apps, web and a bit of gaming? (Or should I just stick at the Sempron level?)

If I put this processor in a 800/530 MHz FSB mboard, will there be a data slowdown or loss (the processor has a 400 MHz FSB.) Or will this be like memory and revert to the slower and just operate as 400 MHz?

A:Solved: Intel Celeron 2.7 GHz processor

No, processors are not like memory. You have to look at the board specifications to see what procesors are supported by a particular board. What processors are supported by a particular board are dependent on three board components, i.e. the chipset, the BIOS and of course the processor.

The 2 machines I primarily use are pretty old socket 478 machines. One machine has an Intel D875PBZ board with an 875P chipset which will only support specific Pentium 4 Extreme Edition and Pentium 4 processors with a 800MHZ or 533MHz FSB. The other has an Intel D865PERL board with an 865PE chipset that will only support specific Extreme Edition Pentium 4 processors, Pentium 4 Processors, Celeron D processors and Celeron Processors with an 800 MHZ, 533 MHz. and 400 MHz. FSB.

You need to check the manufacturers specifications for your specific board to see what processors are, OR are not supported by that board. Intel states for each board the following statement; "Use of unsupported processors may result in improper operation, damage to the desktop board or processor, or reduced product life."

You can install the Celeron 2.7GHz. processor and it may run, however if it does run you still have the risk of damage to the processor and/or board unless that processor is specifically supported.

A:Solved: Intel Celeron(R) M Processor running at 1.40ghz

The maximum RAM a system can use is determined by several factors, but the CPU is rarely the limiting factor and not how to determine the maximum amount of RAM for a system. Since this is a laptop you need to see how much the laptop supports based on motherboard(so chipset and number of slots), and by the operating system, 32 bit(4GB but only about 3GB usable) or 64 bit and the version, and also by the version ie. Windows 7 Starter has a 2GB limit, Home Basic has a 8GB limit for 64-bit or 4GB for 32-bit), or Home, or Professional. The processor does have a maximum amount of memory it can address but its well beyond what the other limitations are. Post or look up the exact model number of the laptop or use a memory configurator like the one at the www.crucial.com site to see how much RAM the hardware will take and then check the

Upgrading a computer... Need to be able to do light video editing. Ok, the motherboard is ASRock P4S61.


The processor it is using is Intel Celeron 320.... Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.40GHz. I would like to upgrade to a Pentium 4 processor. Is it worth it? And aside from "Socket 478" is there anything else that needs to be taken into account for compatability if I were to upgrade?
I am also upgrading the RAM. I have used the scanner on http://www.crucial.com to find which RAM is compatable. Will upgrading the processor to a Pentium 4 make any difference to the compatability of the RAM? Thanks.

A:Solved: Upgrading Intel Celeron to Pentium 4? Compatability questions

As far as the processor goes,you might check for a bios update
in the download section of the asrock site to insure compatability.
Be very careful when doing bios updates.
Pentium 4 processors do perform better than celerons and you
should be able to install a faster processor.

Memory compatability is more a motherboard concern.
Crucial usually provides good matches.

I've tried simply physically replacing one with the other, but as you may guess, it's not that simple. What do I need to do? I'm on a budget of zero.

Could I get by with installation instructions, and perhaps directions towards drivers? I'm open to suggestions.

If your motherboard properly supports the Pentium 4 & if you can OC it to speeds close to 3.0GHz, it should be much better than the Celeron. It all depends on the Pentium 4 though, mostly which core it is based on (Northwood, Prescott, etc.).

Hello all, I received my P51 one week ago, with Xeon 1535M, 16G SSD and 4K display. I just tried to run Intel Extreme Tuning Utility to learn more about the CPU internal tuning options and assess the performance of my system. Surprisingly, when running Intel XTU benchmark, the system has shown repeated current limit throttling, while showing very limited thermal throttling. Net result gets never above 800-820 Marks while I expected a much higher number (several thousands?) according to other threads here regarding P51 thermal throttling issues.  I ran the benchmark in the following conditions : AC power, BIOS set with SpeedStep and max performance enabled, windows power profile on max perforamce, I disabled kaspresky antivirus just in case, grapchics in discrete mode (ie. Nvidia enabled as default). below the screenshot of XTU :  [URL=https://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=556305P51IntelXTU.jpg][IMG]https://img15.hostingpics.... I would appreciate your thoughts there : are all those numbers normal (800 Marks for such a system) ? did I miss something regarding my system setup to ensure it's working at ful throttle ?

Hey, guys. This might be a little off topic, but it could have some bearing on things you do with laptops.

I do Astrophotography with various telescopes, and cameras. I have a Celestron NexImage 5 which is a dedicated astro camera. Instructions say a Pentium IV, 2.0 Ghz or equivalent computer is needed to operate this camera.
This camera would not work with any AMD or Celeron laptop, even recent ones with multiple cores and much faster than 2.0 Ghz. It finally occurred to me what the problem was. The camera needed more power from the USB port than these computers furnish. I fixed the problem by using one of those cables that come with some high-capacity USB HDDs that have the extra power cable to plug into a second USB port.

So, pertaining to people here, if you have an external device that won't work on your AMD or Celeron processor laptop, try one of the dual cords. (I don't know why the Intel laptops work with the one cable...maybe Intel laptops have better quality power supplies)

By the way, I know of several people who returned their cameras because they wouldn't work on their computers. I posted this fix to the Celestron company. They never responded.

Take care.

A:Intel Celeron D336

First off, it looks like that particular CPU (the celeronD336) may not be compatible with that particular motherboard, so if you haven't purchased already, hold off until we can confirm. (source: http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_cpu_support_detail.php?UID=603&kind=1 )

Celeron processors are great for basic internet browsing and document writting. But if you are into any heavier applications that require CPU horsepower, the celeron are a very dissapointing choice. You mention you are building this system specifically for gaming. Do not get a celeron CPU. You will be extremely dissapointed.

A:AMD Athlon 1.6 GHz or Intel Celeron 2.2 Ghz?

Hi gabby64,

Welcome to TSG!

Get laptop B, i.e. for 3D modeling you will likely need a large cache which it has vs laptop A, and the memory is expandable which is the cheapest way to improve performance.

I have a computer with a 1.7 Ghz Intel Celeron and one with a 1.333 Ghz AMD Athlon, which is better?

A:AMD Athlon or Intel Celeron?

Well they are both rather old but I would rather have the Athlon as I t most likely has a larger cache which would make it more steady at tasks.

This processor has been around for many years - I have had a couple of computers with this processor years and years ago and hated them.
I realize I'm not asking a specific question here but your opinion of this processor?

Could anyone shed some light on the subject at hand, my Dad is in the market for a new CPU. He's asked me what the difference is between an Intel Pentium (P4), and a Celeron of equal speed. We know right now that the Celeron is much cheaper, but what about value and durability? Are they upgradable? User friendly?


A:Celeron or Intel Pentium?

Hey guys. I have an older Win XP computer that I keep as a spare. It has an MS 6577 MB with a Celeron cpu rated at something like 2.93 GHZ. I just removed a cpu from another MB I am discarding, that is an Intel 2.26 GHZ. Is the slower rated Intel better than the (supposedly?) faster rated Celeron? I have numerous IDE HDDs, some of which I use for storage that I need to access sometimes. My other computers are SATA and have no IDE ports. It would just take a few minutes to swap out the cpu's if it's worthwhile.

My computer is running very very slow. I do not want to upgrade anything on it at the moment, because I'm still saving up for my dream computer. I just want a quick fix to make my computer run faster. I have a GeForce FX 5200 PCI video card (which sucks more than just space inside of my computer). I needed a cheap video card for games. Is there anyway that I can overclock my intel celeron processor? It's got a 666MHz processor speed. I have 191MB of RAM installed (I should get more soon). I am running windows ME, and have a 14GB HD. I have tried many "speed up programs", but I have finally decided that the only way to make your computer faster is to overclock it. Thanks for looking.

A:Overclocking Intel Celeron

Depedning on the computer, you may OC it by 0~30Mhz. IE: if its a NAME BRAND system, no.

Reality is, you're not going to squeeze much more power out of your CPU. I used to OC my AMD 2500, in which I easily got an extra 200Mhz out of the chip. BUT - it effected my system's timing and while it improved in some areas - it lowered the performance in others (like the HD) - So, I have brought it back down to its default speed.

Just save for your next upgrade... And you can buy these parts piece by piece.

1 - case, $50~100 (inwin 523J or Enermax 1101 series - ver sweet)

2 - AMD64-3000 (64bit CPU) - $200 (in a month or so)
3 - ASUS brand motherboard, Nforce3 motherboard. ($150)
4 - 512mb (2 x 256) min. of DDR-400Mhz RAM
5 - MAXTOR 120GB 2mb HD ($100~120). SILENT & fast (I get about 50mb per sec access)
6 - Nvidia FX5900 = $200 or ATI9800Pro ($300).

About $800~900.
