Intel Celeron 1.7GHz test on Chip.de

Chip Online took a quick look at Intel's new 1.7 GHz Celeron. The chip is based on the Pentium 4 core 'Willamette', but has to make do with 128KB instead of 256KB. The 'Northwood' core (512KB) manufactured in 0.13 micrometer technology is reserved for the P4 for the time being.

The 1.7GHz CPU had to achieve a first place in most applications and especially in games , 6GHz Pentium 4 (Northwood) beaten. In video encoding, however, the lower L2 cache seems to play a lesser role, so the 100Mhz additional clock ensures the Celeron first place. The Celeron 1.7GHz will be available from specialist retailers for around € 120.
