Celeron with 2.0 GHz in the test: Does a Pentium 4 competitor overclock to 3.0 GHz?

Madonion 3DMark2001SE

  • The 3DMark 2001SE is without question the most popular program for evaluating a 'gamer PC'. In a series of synthetic but very practical individual tests (partly based on the Max Payne engine), everything is demanded of the graphics card in particular. In addition to the graphics card, the focus here is on the CPU and memory and their smooth cooperation. However, the benchmark has come under more and more criticism in the last few months because it was able to prove partial measurements in favor of nVidia or other manipulations in favor of a manufacturer.

Even in 3DMark2001 it doesn't look too rosy for the Celeron, although it is quite close to a 2.53GHz Pentium 4 at 3GHz comes. Above all, our powerful graphics card benefits the Celeron, which does a large part of the work. It means that the Celeron receives a higher score in 3DMark2001SE than in its predecessor.
