The Celeron is losing ground
The low-cost processor from Intel, the Celeron, is losing more and more market shares. According to analysts at Dataquest, the reason for the poorer sales of the Celerons is not just any processor from AMD, but Intel's own Pentium 4.
The market share of the Celerons fell from 27.2 to 20.9 percent in the third quarter. Since the Pentium 4 is getting cheaper and cheaper, the slower Celeron is probably no longer a real alternative. At Dell, a system with Pentium 4 is now cheaper than one with Celeron. According to Intel, their flagship is really a bargain.
