The "Pentium" name should have been retired long ago. It just reminds me of 100MHz processors every time I hear it.

I have a celeron G440 and for a single core, It performs like a 45NM Core2Duo or a higher end AMD 65NM Brisbane! I was very surprised on how well the SB die really is in terms of just raw core performance.
