Ah yes, the Celeron and Pentium processors were good back in the days but now ryzen and intel i3,i5,i7,i9 and xeon easily killed them off making them not exist in the best CPU list. Even so, their life is in our hearts we will share our great battles with our comrades and our goodbyes when we got the new pc that truly made a breakthrough.

Benchmark Scores Don't know any benchmark. It runs good enough for me.
The only pentium I got is the dual core G3258 anniversary edition, it still in spare PC. For today use its does not suffice for 4k60p videos but it can run 4k videos fine at 4.0Ghz overclock. Its one fun cpu. Anyway I don't like to overclock nowadays as I value stability for long term work instead.

Joining up with my Katmai Pentium III 500 MHz.
It's in Y2K, my Pentium III/Windows 2000 build. It was cobbled together out of parts from relatives and works well for floppy disk tasks, as it's got both a 3.5" and 5.25" floppy drive.

Pentiums? Yes I have a few. The top row is LGA775 & the next row is S478. I don't currently have any of them running at the moment though. I have a couple s478 boards, a few LGA775 boards. No board for the Pentium MMX 233. All these CPUs are sitting on my PIII 550 beige box. :)

Oh, man. Pentiums. Like 68Olds, I have some, but am less than certain any are in running machines. There's probably a Pentium D in some derelict, and at least one Socket 7 model in my box o' processors.

Wait: I may have recently resurrected a 478 board by slapping a random Celery in it. Time to dig about in the workshop.

Count me in! This Celeron D is actually the slowest 64-bit desktop CPU made by Intel. Running Win7 :)

I own a few. Nothing pre 2000, but, for early 2000s

2.26ghz Celeron D (478)
2.4ghz Pentium 4 (478)
2.8ghz Pentium 4 (478)
3.0ghz Pentium 4 630 (775)

As for newer stuff, I purchased a brand new sealed in box Intel Celeron G440.

1.6ghz single core Celeron with 1mb cache and no hyperthreading. Sounds like specs from 2003, but its a Sandy bridge lga1155 CPU from 2011. I only bought it as a joke since it's so objectively horrible.

Goes great on my shelf of other 1155 CPUs (not terrible ones)

My first bought PC was a Pentium 4 2.4B 533.

Got a couple of P4EE's laying around ill upload pics of later.

The Intel Pentium was where Hyper Threading was born.

Still use a Lenovo ideapad 130S that has an Intel Celeron N4000 (1.1GHz base/ 2.6GHz Max Turbo). Two cores of FURY! It's PASSIVELY cooled and basically never overheats! 6W/10W PL1/PL2 limits

It doesn't respond well to Throttle Stop but it does to QuickCPU so I have it fully tuned with that right now. The main use for this rig is modifying/tuning fuel maps for my motorcycle. The Lenovo is small enough I can throw it in a backpack and ride while the ECU/laptop record data. Honestly, for a Celeron, it runs Windows 10 just fine.

Many do but windows 10 micro code update broke that feature in my Biostar H81. It possible to get them back by deleting the microcode but each time windows 10 update it would broke it again and you have to repeat again. H81 boards have memory limited to ddr3 1400mhz though for me.

Its not a problem if you run Linux I guess.
