Most hardware sites only check out the mid and high-end range processors but Sharky Extreme today decided to review the Celeron D 351 3.2GHz processor from Intel and compare it with other entry-level processors.
The basic specifications of the Celeron D 351 remain consistent with previous Celeron D models, and the processor utilizes the LGA775 package and an integrated heat spreader. Its 90nm core, a variant of the Prescott 1M, features 16K of L1 cache along with 256K of L2 cache, which naturally scales back performance from higher-end Pentium 4/D models. This Celeron D core supports SSE3, and for LGA775 models, the Execute Disable Bit feature combats malicious "buffer overflow" attacks. Intel has also introduced EM64T 64-bit support to select models, among them the Celeron D 351.
