View processor details Intel Celeron 300 'SL2YP'
Intel Celeron 300 'SL2YP'

As stated here the Covington-based Celeron is not a wonderful performer. It does it's job but the lack of L2-cache is noticeable in multi-tasking and specific applications/games.

However, due te absent L2-cache it is a highly overclockable processor. My CP... > Read more

Intel Celeron 266 'SL2YN'

Technically a dreadful CPU! It's basically a Pentium II (which doesn't sound to bad) but without L2 cache. It has none, nothing. This impacts overall performance of the CPU and above all: it feels slow when running Windows '98. Surprisingly some benchmarks are nearly as fast as a Pentium II 233. I s... > Read more

View processor details Intel Celeron 333 'SL32B'
Intel Celeron 333 'SL32B'

The Celeron as it should be. The first Celeron ever released didn't have L2 cache at all making it cheap to produce but quite slow. Intel changed this by adding 128KB full-speed on-die L2 cache into it's playground. This time the cache ran at 100% of the core clockfrequency (333MHz in this case) and... > Read more

Intel Celeron 300A 'SL32A'

The Celeron like it should be. The 300MHz Celeron was also available with the 'Covington' core which is slower because it lacks L2-cache.... > Read more

Intel Celeron 366 'SL37Q'

Similar to this Celeron 333 but a tad faster. The Celeron 366 runs in the neighborhood of the Pentium II 350. ... > Read more

Intel Celeron 400 'SL3A2'

Technically this Celeron 400 is just like the 366MHz slot 1 variant but then in socket form.

The Celeron 400 was a good performer and could still run in the older slot 1 boards using a slotket.... > Read more

View processor details Intel Celeron 266 'SL2YN'
Intel Celeron 266 'SL2YN'

A boxed version of the first Celeron series. Basically the Celeron Covington is a Pentium II without L2-cache. This reduces production costs but also causes performance to drop. No L2-cache at all is not good. It's successor, the Celeron Mendocino, had 128K2 full-speed on-die cache which greatly imp... > Read more

View processor details Intel Celeron 333 'SL36B'
Intel Celeron 333 'SL36B'

The Celeron 333 sold in both slot 1 and socket 370 variants. Back in the day of the Pentium II, slot 1 was used for Intels' latest processors. using slot 1 Intel could move the L2-cache right next to the processor rather than on the motherboard. This is called off-die L2-cache and was faster than L2... > Read more

Intel Celeron 566 'SL46T'

The same as this 566 Celeron. Even the sSpec number is the same. I bought this CPU because I didn't have a working 566 model for the benchmarks.... > Read more

View processor details Intel Celeron 533 'SL3FZ'
Intel Celeron 533 'SL3FZ'

The fastest black PPGA Celeron available but unfortunatly still with a slow 66MHz front side bus (FSB). When the 333MHz Celeron was new, the 66MHz FSB was adequate and the difference between clock frequency and FSB wasn't that big. The 533MHz model has a multiplier of 8x so the difference is a lot m... > Read more

Intel Celeron 566 'SL46T'

Unlike the Celeron at 400MHz or 433MHz this one has been made with the so called 'Coppermine' core. It's made on a 180nm manufacturing process and because of this it can run at higher clock frequencies with less voltage.... > Read more

View processor details Intel Celeron 633 'SL3VS'
Intel Celeron 633 'SL3VS'

Like the 566 and 600 model but faster and still with the slow 66MHz bus. Luckily the Celeron was quite energy efficient so it was not bad for notebooks.... > Read more

View processor details Intel Celeron 600 'SL4PB'
Intel Celeron 600 'SL4PB'

I can't really say anything about this CPU. Just like the 566, 633 and 667 models they were probably sold in quite some quantities but in reality they got out-performed by AMD's Duron.... > Read more

View processor details Intel Celeron 667 'SL4NZ'
Intel Celeron 667 'SL4NZ'

Both the Celeron 667 and the Pentium III 667 are made using a 180nm Coppermine core. The difference can be found in the front side bus and L2-cache size. Let's see how this affects the performance in the benchmarks.... > Read more

Intel Celeron 850 'QBC6ES'

An engineering sample Celeron with an 100MHz front side bus. Luckily Intel stopped increasing the multiplier of the older 66MHz bus versions because they will eventually reach a point that the front side bus is getting to slow.... > Read more

Intel Celeron 800 'SL54P'

The first Celeron with 100MHz bus. The 766 model was starting to lack bandwidth due the slower 66MHz bus, and AMD's Duron was rocketing along with far greater performance. Intel tried to close the gap a bit by using a faster bus.... > Read more

Intel Celeron 1000 'SL5XT'

A Celeron at the 1GHz mark; a good thing for marketing and business. The processor did it's job but was nowhere as fast as a Duron.... > Read more

Intel Celeron 900 'SL633'

No, this is not a 'Tualatin' as many would think because they see a heatspreader. This is a FC-PGA2 'Coppermine' CPU which is also known as the Coppermine-T. As since all FC-PGA2 CPU's have a heatspreader, this CPU has one too.

A little story on the PPGA, FC-PGA and FC-PGA2:
PPGA stands for Plas... > Read more

Intel Celeron 1100A 'QME2QS'

A qualification sample of Intel's Celeron 1100 with 'Tualatin'-core. It runs at 1100MHz and doesn't need as much voltage as the older Pentium III / Celeron CPU's because the Tualatin is made with the 130nm manufacturing process.... > Read more

Intel Celeron 1.8 GHz 'QJT4ES'

A very late Intel Celeron 1.8GHz engineering sample. The Willamette core was released in 2000 and this sample, with the last Willamette-revision (E0) is from 2002! ... > Read more

Intel Celeron 1.9 GHz 'QJT3ES'

An engineering sample of a not-so-very-speedy Celeron. This Celeron is based on the same core as the Pentium 4 Willamette but only has 128KB L2-cache instead of 256KB L2-cache. Because the 'Netburst' architecture has a long pipeline a big L2-cache is useful and this CPU doesn't have a big L2-cache; ... > Read more

Intel Celeron 1000A 'SL5ZF'

A new version of the Celeron; the 'Tualatin' made on the 130nm process with 256KB L2-cache. It out-performs both the Celeron and more expensive Pentium III with the 'Coppermine' core. It's a fine CPU but by the time it was sold (this CPU is from 19th week of 2002), better CPU's we're available. Both... > Read more

Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz 'SL68C'

Just a Celeron at 1700MHz; not much spectacular and perfomance wise. Perhaps only interesting for Office applications.... > Read more

Intel Celeron 2.0 GHz 'SL6SW'

A 2GHz Celeron with a little L2-cache. Nothing spectacular and only suitable for light Office work.

For this CPU it's the same as with the Celeron 2.2 GHz; I can't really think of a reason to buy this kind of CPU halfway 2003.... > Read more

Intel Celeron 2.7 GHz 'SL77S'

One of the last Celeron 'Northwood' iterations. It's brother ticks at 2800MHz and all higher clocked Celeron CPU's are based on Prescott (90nm, max. 3,33GHz) or Cedar Mill (65nm, max 3,6GHz).... > Read more

Intel Celeron 2.2 GHz 'SL6VT'

This CPU was made during the 41th week of 2003. Consider that the 3,06GHz Pentium 4 was available at the end of 2002 and CPU's like 2,66 ~ 2,8GHz Pentium 4 or Athlon XP 2600+ were more than mainstream. Because the Celeron with Northwood core was never a good performer (in mainstream, some light offi... > Read more

Just like this Celeron 2.2GHz but 200MHz faster. This 2400MHz part is has been made in the end of 2003 when much faster parts like the Athlon64 3200+ and Pentium 4 3GHz were already available.... > Read more

Intel Celeron 460 'QXZY'

Based on the Conroe-L core. It's basically a single-core Core 2 Duo CPU with less L2-cache and a slower FSB.

As far as I know there is no production version/model of this CPU available. The fastest Celeron in this series is the Celeron 450, running at 2.2GHz.
