New Celeron D Performance

I was thinking about getting a Celeron D 347 for my sub computer

Its going to be used for light gaming with a 7600gs and a gig of ram

its is a 65nm and 512kb l2
and I also heard it is a Conroe-L core or something and runs REALLY cool.

Ive also heard that they are really good for the price

how is it??

  1. That's a netburst cpu... not conroe

    Cedar mill, 512K, 65nm.
  2. w/e it is
    how is it
  3. Celeron D-65? ~=Northwood no HT, possibly slower.

    :-( for gaming
    :-) for office stuff

    At least move up to the E6300 for gaming, otherwise you'd be better off buying AMD Athlon64 single core.

    Yes, Celerons suck in gaming and overall cpu intensive jobs and when they say a CPU is good for office apps, then it's good for nothing. Even in price celerons D don't compete well, the cheapest range $40-50 while you stil have S754 semprons @ $30-40 performing much better.

    Is it tom's servers screwin around?
  12. I share the opinon like the rest of the discutants in this thread,
    Celeron is the worst CPU for gaming, available on the market.
    It's architecture is 31stage Netburst.
    If your budget is tight and you need CPU for gaming, the best choice ise Athlon64 s939 3200+ or 3500+.

    Not my fault, I got someting like "An error ocured" after clicking submit :oops:
    and gOJDO seems to be on the same boat. Last night I couldn't even open the topics, any problems on the server?!
  15. I wish that the celeron series would die altogether. R.I.P. and NEVER come back.
  16. In performance they really have to, however, I'd rather like it to survive as name. It's much more romentic than 'Core2 Duo' or 'X6800' and I have good memories of my 333MHz and the Tualatins were nice stuff too. The whole P4 architecture was way too inefficient to make a good value CPU with cripled L2; mobile celerons ofer a much more decent poeformance.
  17. I love your quad-core posts hehehehe

    and state this on a celeron thread :lol:
  19. am2 sempron cheaper, runs cooler, and probly performs better.
  20. Celerons suck not just for gaming but overall system performance is also appauling. A Celeron at 2ghz is about as good as a Pentium 3.

    agreed.
    Amd64 Single Cores are still great CPU especialy for the price...
    As for Celerons. My first Cpu was a Celeron 885MZ... it was ok
    But I have a friend.. he used to have a 1.8Celeron and it destroying his gaming.. He was play CS:S everything on low with 30FPS.
    As for Semrpons... I loved my Sempron it was great. And it blew my friends OC'd Celeron out of the water..
