CPU Performance Overview Q1/1999

A - The Influence Of The Front Side Bus

Intel wants to make us believe that 100 MHz FSB is significantly superior to 66 MHz FSB to justify the higher price of Pentium II over Celeron. With normal software I couldn't find much though.

The Celeron 400/66 is about 3.7% slower than the Pentium II 400 in Winstone 99, in Quake 2 it's about the same and in 3D StudioMax the Celeron is even a bit faster than Pentium II, due to its faster L2-cache.
