If you have always associated the “Celeron” name with very affordable and slow processors, then time has come for you to change your opinion. The new representatives of this CPU family use 45 nm core with 1 MB L2 cache, which makes them extremely attractive against the background of their competitors and even their more expensive fellow processors.
Performance during Audio and Video Encoding
New Celeron from E3000 series are undoubtedly better than their predecessors in media content encoding tasks. The differences become especially obvious when we test the performance with x264 codec, although in all other cases Intel processors also run way faster than low-cost AMD solutions. Moreover, 45 nm Celeron processors finally reduce the gigantic distance that separates them from the Pentium processor series.
