    CPU help. Whats the difference between celeron and celeron d?

    Hey guys.

    Im looking at building a pc on the cheap for someone and want to know the difference between these 2 cpu`s

    Intel Celeron D 352 Socket 775, 3.2GHz, 512KB Cache, Retail

    Intel Celeron 430 Socket 775, 1.8GHz, 512KB Cache, Retail


    They are both about the same price but the 352 is nearly double the cpu speed.

    Which one is the best ?

    Cheers

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

    Re: CPU help. Whats the difference between celeron and celeron d?

    Not entirely sure, but I'm betting that the Celeron 430 is based on the newer Core microarchitecture, whereas the Celeron D 352 is probably secretly just a Pentium 4 using the older NetBurst architecture.

    Don't know which is faster in the benchmarks, but I'd probably go for the Celeron 430.

    Re: CPU help. Whats the difference between celeron and celeron d?

    Yes, unlike the pentiums the D at the end means nothing
    although the clock speed is lower on the 430 is should out perform the 352
    also run cooler with less power required.

    On the off chance, not knowing you budget or the costs you're looking at, have you looked at the new pentium Dual-Core? (formally known as the core duo) it's the e21x0 range.
    They are pritty cheap and perform quite well

    Re: CPU help. Whats the difference between celeron and celeron d?

    Yes, It would help you if you have a look at the new pentium Dual-cores as pob255 has mentioned they are under $100 and have great overclocking potential as well.Atleast one of the two models, you can easily google them kopite.

    The Celeron 430 will OC well - it's just a single core version of the Pentium Dual Core. But the Pentium Dual Core is better value overall.

    They're not Core Duos. Core Duos are 2 Pentium Ms stitched together, much like the current quads are 2 C2Ds stitched together. E21x0s are just E4x00s with yet more L2 cache chopped off. They are as you say very good performers for the money though, as the recent Hexus budget CPU review showed.

    Re: CPU help. Whats the difference between celeron and celeron d?

    I think if the computer is for basic word processing,imaging a few camera pictures and web browsing the Celeron should be more than enough as long as the computer is running XP. Vista runs better on a dual core though!!

    The difference between a dual core E2140 and a single core Celeron 420 on Scan is 19 quid and both run at 1.6ghz.This is a significant amount for a low cost system.

    I stand corrected, what where they called when they first came out?
    They are being sold as pentium D's now but I remember that it wasn't. the Pentium D was a diffent type altogether.
    I'm currently running on a Pentium D, which was two of the non-HT p4 chips stuck together on the same board thing, I'm not sure what the correct name is, generally what we refur to as a cpu, is the actual CPU chip on a board with pins or contact points on the bottom and a heat spreader on the top.

    EDIT: I found it, offically they are Pentium Dual-Core although many places sell them as Pentium D
    While they are not really needed for simple computer use web browseing/e-mail/office work however they do help, especially with the amount of background processes windows accumulates a dual core cpu can make life a little eaiser
