 Celeron - a definition from Whatis.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Celeron is the low-end (and low cost) member of the family of microprocessors from Intel that is based on its P6 architecture.
Celeron models later than the 300 A include an L1 and L2 cache on the microchip, meaning that the cache is accessed at the same clock speed that the processor operates with.
However, because the Celeron L2 cache is on the processor chip and the Pentium II's is not, their effective L2 speeds are closely comparable.

 Benchtest.Com - Celeron-A
When the first of the Celerons was introduced, it received less than glowing reviews from the performance CPU community.
While I was researching the Celeron A, (before I purchased one) I came across an article on cooling the Celeron by using two heat sinks; one attached to the side with the slug, and one attached to the rear of the circuit card.
Having never seen a Celeron up close, I wrongly assumed that there was some sort of metal on the rear of the circuit card to conduct the heat away from the processor to the second heat sink.

 Celeron 335D, the disguised Willamette   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The Celeron 335D is the fastest - until the Celeron 340D - 2.93GHz - becomes mainstream - of the newer bunch of Celerons which are set to rule the Intel world.
The Celeron D 335 is still using the old but mature socket 478 platform which includes proven chipsets as Intel's own 84x and 865 families, SIS 6xx and VIA's P4XX branches.
The delicate equilibrium is that the Celeron must be slow enough so as not to impact the P4 range while at the same time being quick enough so as to stay in the wake of the Athlon XP/Duron/Sempron.

 Intel accelerates its Celeron shift | Tech News on ZDNet
New mobile Celeron processors don't always make headlines, but the 800MHz chip marks the beginning of a transition for the Celeron line to a new generation of underlying technology--a few months earlier than expected.
Unlike past mobile Celerons, which were based on the Pentium III-M or the Pentium 4, the ultra-low-voltage chip borrows its circuitry from Intel's more recent Pentium M. The company had been expected to make the circuitry transition in the first quarter of 2004.
The Celeron chip, which appears in tablets such as the Motion M1300, serves as an alternative to Intel's flagship mobile processor, the Pentium M, or its aging Pentium III-M for the smallest mobile computers, such as tablets.

 Celeron, take me away | Perspectives | CNET News.com
Celeron is, among other things, the name of an 18th century French explorer, an industrial laminate from Brazil, a condominium development near Ohio's Kent State University, and the New York state birthplace of Lucille Ball.
Celeron was meant to suggest simplicity and reliability while sounding smooth and international, according to Roger Kay, an analyst at International Data Corporation who contacted Intel about the origin of the name.
If the mildly irritating Celeron was the big winner in the brand sweepstakes, the losers must've been the verbal equivalent of fingernails scratching over a chalkboard combined with the smell of turpentine.

 CNN - Celeron: Just what the gamer ordered - January 22, 1999
And while Intel’s original cacheless Celeron was routinely vilified, it did have one strong suit: it loved to be overclocked to a much higher speed—unlike the Pentium II, whose L2 cache balked if you tried.
The difference between the Celeron’s cache and a Pentium II’s is that the Celeron has its cache completely integrated within the CPU, where a standard PII has it in a separate module.
The Celeron’s cache also runs at the same speed as the processor, where a Pentium II’s is uniformly slower than the CPU.

 Howstuffworks "What is the difference between a Pentium and a Celeron processor?" (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.umd.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
A Celeron might have 128 kilobytes of L2 cache, while a Pentium 4 can have four times that.
When you sort all this out and compare the two chips side by side, it turns out that a Celeron and a Pentium 4 chip running at the same speed are different beasts.
If all you do is check e-mail and browse the Web, the Celeron is fine, and the price difference can save you a lot of money.

 X-bit labs - Print version
Celeron is considerably slower than the youngest Pentium 4 processors, as well as the competing Athlon XP CPUs selling in the same price group (we have already discussed it in great detail in our article called Choosing a Budget CPU: 24 Value Processors from Intel and AMD in Our Lab).
However, despite this relatively big increase of the heat generation, the boxed Celeron D processors are equipped with a new type of cooler with a copper heart and radially directed ribs guiding the ousted air flow around the cooler and the processor more efficiently.
Celeron D processors based on Prescott core cost exactly as much as the previous generation Celeron processors on Northwood core working at the same frequencies.

 Intel Pentium II Celeron Processor Table   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The performance of the initial 266MHz and 300MHz 0K L2 versions of the Celeron was between that of a plain Pentium with MMX 200-233.
Intel has differentiated between it's Celeron and standard Pentium III line by keeping the Celeron chips to 128K of on-chip cache and 66MHz bus speeds, and boosting the Pentium III from 512K of 1/2 speed off-chip L1 cache to 256K of full speed on-chip L1 cache - with 100 and 133MHz bus speeds.
Starting with the 566MHz version of the Celeron, it will be updated to the Pentium III core, and produced on a.18 micron process.

 Intel Steps Up Plans For Its Celeron Chip - Technology News by TechWeb
The analyst community has scrutinized the performance of Intel's (company profile) first Celeron, a 266-MHz chip for low-cost computers that was introduced in April.
Because the current Celeron design does not have Level 2 cache, which is a special type of high-speed memory, it is considerably slower in performance than Pentium II chips with comparable clock speeds.
The 266-MHz Celeron, for example, is on par with an older Intel chip, the 233-MHz Pentium MMX.

 Intel snips desktop Celeron prices | CNET News.com (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.umd.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Its 2.4GHz Celeron was reduced by 6 percent, from $84 to $79.
Intel held its 2.3GHz Celeron at $79 and brought down the price of its 2.2GHz and 2.1GHz Celerons, which are priced the same, by 7 percent, from $74 to $69.
But the less-expensive Celerons come with a smaller 128KB cache and a 400MHz bus, or pipeline for data, that is slower than those found on most current Pentium 4s.

Intel's Celeron processor was released back in 1998 - a short time ago compared to the lifespan of a Galapagos Tortoise, but a relative eternity in the processor industry.
The Celeron is essentially a Pentium III Coppermine series CPU with 128KB of L2 cache, communicating with the chipset via a 100MHz FSB.
The Celeron and Pentium III are similar enough that they are even made from the same.18 micron die using aluminum interconnects.

The name Celeron is used by Intel to denominate its low cost line of processors.
In other words, Celeron is a simplified version of Pentium II, Pentium III or Pentium 4, with some of its features being reduced or removed.
Because of these differences Celeron is cheaper and of low-performance, compared to the Pentium II, Pentium III and Pentium 4 processors, thus it fits well to domestic users market or to those who don’t need great power in the computer.

 X-bit labs - Articles - Intel Celeron 566 Review
According to Intel's plans, Celeron had to acquire a new Coppermine core and its manufacturing had to be moved tothe same technology as that of Pentium III, namely, to 0.18 micron.
In fact, Intel Celeron on Coppermine128 core is noneother but the same Intel Pentium III with an electrically disconnected half of L2 cache.
Another advantage of the new Celeron based on Coppermine128 core, which is worth mentioning, is the support of a newset of SSE SIMD-instructions.

 [No title]
This is because of the fact that the Celeron has no L2 cache - on a Pentium II, as you increase the core speed, the speed of the L2 cache increases, and the L2 cache was not designed to operate at such high speeds.
Since the CPU core of Celeron is the same as Pentuim II, I thought that I could use this good cost/performance CPU in a dual configuration.
The first problem when we try to use Celeron in a dual configuration is that on the Celeron, BR1# is not connected from the CPU core to CPU board.

 An illustrated Guide to 6th generation CPUs
The first Celeron were extremely good for over-clocking, since much of the problem here arises from the onboard L2 cache.
The Mendocino-based Celeron cartridge running at 300 MHz was named with an A as suffix to distinguish it from the Celeron 300 without L2 cache.
Hence, the first two models were the Celeron 300A and 333.

 Celeron
Since the Celeron 400Mhz is locked at a 6x multiplier, you can use the 4x multiplier setting in CPU Soft Menu.
I still have not tested a Socket-370 Celeron, but I have a feeling that we are not going to make it up to 600Mhz on that one.
The newest members of the Celeron family are capable of some speeding themselves, although the higher priced 400MHz seems to be somewhat crippled by its high multiplier.

 Intel Celeron processor family (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.umd.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Celeron CPUs are usually packaged the same way as Pentium II/III/4 processors and can be used in motherboards designed for Pentium II/III/4 processors (see Celeron vs Pentium for more information).
Celerons based on Pentium II core was packaged either in Slot 1 or plastic PPGA package.
Celeron 266 based on Covington core was the first processor from Celeron series.
www.cpu-world.com.cob-web.org:8888 /CPUs/Celeron/index.html   (287 words)

  
 Celeron
Thus, Intel created a brand new CPU called Celeron, which is similar to the Pentium II but lacks L2 cache as well as the Pentium II shell and uses a new Covington core.
Today, the Celeron A and future Celeron processors are available at higher speeds with more cache built right into the core CPU chip.
The Celeron A's and future Celeron processors cache helps to elevate some of the cache issues that brought the original Celeron some very harsh reviews and are a good alternative for users who don't mind a slight decrease in performance and do not plan on playing today's hardware intensive computer games or other software programs.

 SysOpt Forums - Pentium versus Celeron   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In the old days of the PII, the Celeron (128k cache) was actually an almost equal performer and could be overclocked much further anyhows (good ol Clelery 300a).
Celerons have almost always had TWO major distinctions from Pentiums, and for a while, a third, only one of which has been mentioned so far.
Even if a Pentium and a Celeron run at the same stock frequency (overall, not FSB) the Celerons will perform worse because (among other things) OTHER components are running at a slower speed, such as the memory bus, than with the P3.

Intel's has updated the core of the Celeron chip to the Pentium III core, on a 66MHz system bus, and a.18 micron process.
The Pentium III Celeron supports the SSE instructions - as it is a Pentium III at heart after all.
These Celerons are basically PIII's that didn't have functional 256K cache, so Intel disabled the bad half, and left them as fully functional 128K L2 cache Celerons, now with SSE instructions.
