Lo-Cost Duel: Duron 1100 vs. Celeron 1200
Краткое содержание статьи: For well under $150, both the AMD Duron 1100 and the Intel Celeron 1200 offer lots of power. In 3D games, the Duron 1100 is ahead by a nose - and in office applications, the Celeron 1200. Ideal for overclocking: the Celeron with a solid 1500 MHz!

Priced To Go: Duron 1100 & Celeron 1200


Currently no CPU offers more performance for less than $150. AMD and Intel unveil their fastest low-cost processors for the bottom end of the market. AMD expands its Duron series with a 1100-MHz variation - Intel keeps up with the competition by offering the Celeron 1200 in the same class. One thing is certain at any rate; the top models at the beginner level were never to be had so inexpensively! However, both CPUs are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and, seen in terms of value for money, are absolute front-runners - you just can't get more power for your money. Among these, the AMD Duron 1100 wins honorable mention: it only costs $102 and fits into all Socket 462 boards (Socket A). That makes it the ideal upgrade solution without giving rise to additional costs. What's more, the speed increase over an older AMD processor - of about 600 MHz -- is immediately noticeable. Things are a little different with the Intel Celeron 1200: It needs a special board that supports the Tualatin core. Those boards have only been on the market for about 10 weeks. The Celeron 1200 will only work with a mainboard that is equipped with an Intel 815 EPT, Intel 810 (B2 stepping) or VIA Apollo Pro 133T chipset. That makes this CPU unsuitable for an upgrade. The market situation results in another minus - comparable boards with Socket 370 for the Intel Celeron cost at least $140.

PC manufacturers, on the other hand, have a much easier time of it. They can put together a fairly inexpensive PC system with an Intel processor and, on top of this, gain attention with the convincing addition of "1200 MHz". This type of PC system flies off the shelves at prices of approximately $650 to $750 - especially when large, well-known discount superstores offer PCs by the hundreds of thousands. The lessl-informed customer, after all, couldn't care less which CPU or mainboard his cheaply got bargain PC has - the main thing is that he got lots of Megahertz and Gigabytes for a song.
