It should be helpful for people, who want to buy a sub $100 CPU.

BTW, it's fun to look at 2.6 GHz Celeron scores!

It been a long time that intel Celeron get there butt kick.

The prescott Celeron might be a bit better.

I dont like french test

i realy think amd is the way to go

F.....ing cheaper and in pair with p4 or almost. but who care for 1/3 of the p4 price :/ 

My own beast: Athlon 2700xp+ (oc: 3200xp+ with 200fsb) , Radeon 9800pro (oc: 410/370) , 512mb ddr400. SO MUCH faster than my last computer (pIII 550......)

I agree, but if you must have the absolute best performance right now its Intel. This excludes amd64 or fx or p4ee from the above equation.

If I glanced at a spilt box of tooth picks on the floor, could I tell you how many are in the pile. Not a chance, But then again I don't have to buy my underware at Kmart.

No way man, it's cyrix... That's excluding sun sparc, alpha, amd, intel of course.

Some day I'll be rich and famous for inventing a device that allows you to stab people in the face over the internet.

What's the point in excluding the A64? It's available today and it performs excellently. If you must have the best performance right now then go for the A64.

Anyway I don't see how that's relevent.

Re: What's the point in excluding the A64? It's available today and it performs excellently.

Just because they are new (recent) and operate at a different level. Dont get me wrong I like amd64 and think it has great future potential, but if you throw amd64 into the equation some Intel troll will bring up p4ee then an amd troll would say (yeah but I'm running 64bit linux or whatever) In a month or 2 I'll throw amd64 into my personal equation. Right now the vast majority of processors sold are amdxp duron or intel p4 (non ee) or celeron.

I think the topic was based on standard p4's celrons amdxp and duron. Well mostly budget processors anyway.

Just how I see it.

intel just suck in value market

My own beast: Athlon 2700xp+ (oc: 3200xp+ with 200fsb) , Radeon 9800pro (oc: 410/370) , 512mb ddr400. SO MUCH faster than my last computer (pIII 550......)

Actually the article just threw in a cheap P4 for comparison (it was still over their $100 mark though).

a 90$ 2600+ is a f***ing good buy.

I was surprised at how many times the 2400+ beat the 2500+ barton and how few times the 2500+ barton beat the 2600+.

It might have been over there price limit of $100 but its available,, if one is stupid enough to buy it. Its for sale - in their benchmarks and got smoked by the duron in almost every case. But yes the article most definitely is not trying to compare typical p4's of today.
