AMD Semperon or Celeron P4?

  Mikeytaichi 20:59 08 Feb 2005

I would appreciate any info on comparison performance between Semperon 2400+ (1.667GHz ~ £45)and Celeron D320 (2.4GHz ~ £61 ). Upgrading from a Duron 900MHz, mainly for office applications, which is the faster/better value? I have had conflicting info so far from different vendors with regards to speeds.

dont go for neither, get an athlon xp, the seperon range of processors are not very good at all. if u want power and performance go for a 2500+barton core athlon xp. u can run this @200mhz at the flick of a jumper(and some ddr400 ram!)cheap cheerfull and will wooooop the pants off of the above mentioned processors! intel.who are intel????????? lol

Unfortunately none of the reviews comment on the wooooop coefficient.
It depends what you want, but after years of being a bit of a dog the celery D with 256-kilobyte L2 cache and the 533MHz FSB, is getting to be an OK budget buy.

have to agree with the second posting.

The socket A Barton core CPU's are far better and efficient.

You can get the 2800 here for sub £70. click here
