    A £25 Celery did this. :rockout: I wonder how it would bench compared to i7 quads and similar processors?

    EDIT: To give him credit, the guy who did this goes by the handle TiN.

    It would be demolished at by an i5 650 running at stock, on one core with turbo mode on (3.73Ghz on a single-core load) even if it could bench anything at those clocks, and I doubt it can.

    A single Conroe core is often faster than a single NetBurst core at twice the clocks.

    Good effort. I'd like to see it on an i7 though.

    Of course, less cache > better potential for high clocks. Disabling L2 cache helps too though it makes your machine useless performance wise.

    That lack of cache really hurts performance on Celerys: any kind of multitasking and the thing bogs down like nobody's business. :shadedshu

    The original FSB on that chip is only 533 MHz?!! That is one heckuva overclock!

    That is one high clock. I was going to post a picture of a cartoon celery with a smiley face, but found this picture with celery next to a jar of Wiz. What the heck is Wiz?! :laugh:

    Very awesome overclock, good old Celeron. The only use for em is to get high GHz, nothing else.

    It would be beaten by a i7 @ under 4GHz easily.

    My old Celeron I could OC like crazy. Sadly, I didn't notice a difference and thought I was doing something wrong. XD

    Stupid 3.4GHZ 478 socket wall. :(

    Missed the point guys. The point wasn't performance, it was purely to make a world record for ghz. Sure an i7 stock would kill it, but who cares? They chose a celeron because it would provide the best overclock, not for its power. Getting close to tripleing the FSB??? yea, screw performance, thats just awesome.

    Um, P4s have hit 8ghz already and AMD has had 965s at 7ghz under helium.
