Intel Celeron 420 3.0 GHz VS Intel Pentium 4 HT 5.0 GHz (Cedar Mill, 65 nm)

I am just going to let you know that I have an Intel Core i7-3770K 4.2 GHz! I will be glad if you can tell me which of those CPUs has higher overall performance! I only care about performance (power consumption and temperatures are not important what so ever)!

  1. Definitely P4
  2. Why did you open a new thread ?
  3. 'cause he/she is waiting answer that he/she is looking for.
    so, stop feeding the troll
  4. The Celeron is a Conroe architecture chip. Since Core2 was about a 40% clock for clock increase over a P4 I would say the performance is about equal.
  5. Yeah, roughly equal, if you extrapolate the performance from these:

    http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Celeron+420+%40+1.60GHz

    to 5.0Ghz and 3.0Ghz, they're roughly both 600-610 in passmark's scoring. That's assuming you can split your workload up to utilize hyperthreading though.

    They'll trade blows on various tasks, but the Celeron 420 should win most of the time, while the P4 will probably feel more responsive when loading the CPU because of hyperthreading.
    For 64bit, or SIMD tasks, I'd favor the 420, but there are some things where the pure GHz and 4x larger cache will give the P4 an advantage, but not many.

    From this thread: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1658642/intel-celeron-420-intel-pentium-ghz.html we found out that an Intel Celeron 420 1.6 GHz beats an Intel Pentium 4 HT 2.8 GHz, not even being that close. I guess that this should mean that the Intel Celeron 420 3.0 GHz should also beat a Pentium 4 HT 5.0 GHz without any problems in everything, since the clock is almost 2 times higher.

    Lets not forget that p4 will be taking similar power consumption to an i7 3960x to run at 5ghz and will need water cooling or the celeron 420 you will barely hear it on with little fan for cooling. Will be about similar performance. Put it into perspective my i5 3317u slowest i5 ivy bridge 17w ulv mobile cpu is like 5-10x faster then a p4 at 5ghz while taking 1/10th of the power so around 50x better performance per watt.


    Perhaps you missed the part where the OP said:
