In de meeste benchmarks zat de Celeron de Pentium 4 dicht op de hielen, in de MPEG-4 en MP3 encoding benchmarks was het verschil zelf bijzonder klein
All hail the Pentium 4! With its high clock speeds, a wide selection of compatible platforms and a dearth of rival AMD models, Intel has successfully defended its title as the champion in the processor business. Now the low-cost Celeron model has joined the party in the lower-clock-speed segment (up to 1.8 GHz), in order to beat out AMD's models with low prices and high clock speeds. However, in doing that, isn't Intel competing with its own products?
