The difference between the P4 and the new Celeron? 50% less L2....

Based on the Willamette Core (First Generation P4-Socket 478 Core)

Litterally Squashes the Duron in mosts tests, and is at the same price.

Nice move, Intel! I wonder how the upcoming Duron 1.4ghz is going to stack up? I would never buy a Duron, nor a celeron though, as even at Intel's budget price of 83 dollars, I could get an AMD XP1700 :wink:

Durons are pretty good. The 1Ghz versions have made Office PCs easy to build.
But they are phasing out the design in favour of the Athlon.

I happen to like the Durons myself. Damn reliable and extremely easy to overclock. I have a 1.0GHz that I boosted to 1.32GHz and it crunches numbers 24/7 without fail. 8)
