Budget CPU for Enthusiasts: Intel Celeron E3300 Processor Review
I sure hope that after giving VT to Celerons, they'll enable VT on all series of CPUs that they produce. Including processors of previously released series that are still producing, like E5000 for example.
Too bad that our company desktops have E2xxx CPUs, so no XP mode here
You almost never see processor power consumption reported, because to do that you'd need to know the system base power consumption.
Here is another old review that gets lower figures for the E7200 than the E5200 gets in this review. Maybe the difference is the VRMs.
Athlon II 240 65w @ 2.8ghz 2mb cache = $60
Celeron E3300 65w @ 2.5ghz 1mb cache = $60
P.S. You can actually upgrade with the AMD platform down the line, something you can't do with the Intel one.
Are Xbit editors corporate shills for intel? the x2 240 is the same price and it destroys the e3300 but you use the ancient 5600 in the benchmarks?
The LGA 775 is being phased out so why is intel releasing new chips(e3400)?Its because They are fully aware that 6 months down the line users will be throwing away their geriatric 775 rig and spending $$$$ upgrading to the expensive LGA 1156 plus DDR3 and another intel chip.
despicable profit hunting and brand engineering by Intel.
