  1. Can anyone help me settle this debate?
    P4 Celeron D 2.4 scaled back p4's or?

    Most techies do not think of celeron as P4's
    but they are refered to as them, P4 Celeron 2.4
    I've always thought of them as scaled back p4's, but
    went to intels site and did not find them listed as p4's, just listed
    with the p4's..

    A friend wants to buy this from me but wants to know if it's a P4.
    BFG gForce 6800 gt oc 256mb agp 8x with a celeron D 2.4 oc'd to
    2.8 on an ABIT VT7.

    Thankz for any thoughts here

    Whats the core

    I am not to familiar with the entire celeron dynasty but basically check out the core name. Prescott, Northwoods, ect. That will tell you basically if it is of the same caliber as a P4 meaning off the same wafer as a P4 but uncapable or made uncapable of P4 specs.

    Take a look for instance back in AMD socket A days. They had the Athlon XP's with the t-bred, plalimeno, barton cores but the celeron comparable Duron had its own seperate applebred core.

    Now look at the Sempron Line. Differnt name but same core architecture as the athlon XP's but basically the same CPU manually disabled to lesser specks then that of the Athlon XP's.

    Pentium 4 and celeron D are different, the names aren't interchangeable, but celeron d's are basically pentium 4's that have less cache, have no hyperthreading, and also use a slower fsb.

    So it's not a p4 celeron d, it's a "celeron d", but it's a derivative(with less performance) of the p4 if that makes sense. It's a "budget" p4 if you will.

    That's an AMD AthlonXP board so there has to be a mistake somewhere.

    Adjustment Yes a BIG mistake! Thank you Didou

    I have too many machines here DOH!
    ABIT VT7
    I think what my friend is confused about,
    is the abit vt7 can run both the celeron D 2.4
    and a standard P4 2.4 w/o HT @ higher fsb. He wants
    to upgrade when he can afford it.
    This is helping me understand better which in turn I
    will help him, whether or not he buys...
    Thank you!
