Performance Guide: Intel Celeron


I ran all Celeron benchmarks first on the Asus CUWE-RM, which is an i810E motherboard (integrated graphics controller), and then on the Asus CUBX motherboard plus nVIDIA's TNT2/Ultra reference card, as I wanted to show you the Celeron's performance with an inexpensive graphics card.

Our results show clearly that the i810 graphics controller is really fast enough for office applications under Windows. Intel marketing specialists would now say something like "look, our i810 is as fast as other graphics solutions!" I think the result don't hold surprise, as graphic chips have reached the maximum of 2D acceleration years ago. Further performance gains are only very minor. Let's now take a look at the game benchmarks though.
