Intel Celeron-D Test System

 

Processor: Intel Celeron D 336 (533MHz FSB) (Supplied by Intel)

 

Memory: 2x 512MB Corsair DDR2-800

 

Hard Disk: 2x Seagate7200.9 (Supplied by Seagate)

 

Motherboard: ASUS P5AD2-E Premium (Supplied by ASUS)

 

Graphics Card: ATI Radeon X800XT Platinum (Supplied by ASUS)

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2

 

We choose these particular setups as they were somewhat in the higher than average range of the performance specs for both platforms. Intel's Celeron-D was populated with Dual Channel DDR-2 memory, as this is a feature of the provided chipset.

 

While we did use two modules in the AMD system, they aren't running Dual Channel, since Socket 754 doesn't provide for this feature.

 

Let's begin our benchmarks and find out which platform offers the best performance.

SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.

 

 

 

 

Here we can see that the Sempron CPU lacks in the synthetic tests compared to the Celeron-D and its Prescott core, however, this isn't a measure of real world power.
