1.4GHz P4 vs 1.7GHz Celeron CPU?

We are trying to run a game on a minimum spec CPU

Can anyone find me a link to an old CPU chart that compares a P4 1.4GHz CPU vs a Celeron 1.7GHz

Am I also right to assume that the celeron does not have a math cpu in it or what is the difference?

More about : 4ghz 7ghz celeron cpu

The Celeron is basically a Pentium (1.7ghz could be P3 or P4) with less or no cache(P3). This is all down to the FSB and cache.

A Pentium 4 @ 1.4 would be faster than a Celeron (P4) on 1.7Ghz.

I'm quite sure because I benchmarked a Pentium 4 @1.6 with a Celeron (P4) @ 2.0Ghz at SiSandra and 3DMark and the Pentium 4 always ended up faster. About 10% I think.

Celeron is always the lowest of the low. Remember that. Its like a Sempron. Its just not that great.

If think the more important issue is what socket it's on. I don't know of a 1.4 GHz Pentium 4 that is not a socket 423 CPU sucking Rambus ram. Celeron has my vote. Socket 478 all the way.

^Pretty much. But still Atom is set for the UMPC world and the amount of power drain on the system with Atom compared to Celeron is ungodly. In terms of performance/watt Atmo will kill a lot. But in terms of raw performance it wont.

^Don't wanan be a ass but I had to prove you wrong. In the move to S478 they went from 1.4GHz+ so yes there was a 1.4GHz S478 Pentium 4:

I stand corrected. Seriously, I thought 1.5 GHz was the lowest for socket 478. Thanks jimmysmitty. That'll teach more to always double check if I'm not absolutely sure on my facts. If that P4 is on socket 478, it's the best by far. Should wipe the floor with the celeron.

I'm sorry. I forgot. Special mention to the Duron. Its the Semprons disabled twin brother. They had to let him go the way of old Yeller. Or at least I would have like I did to my fiances eMachines 2.7GHz Celeron. Replaced it with a 2.8GHz P4 and what a difference.
