No sandy bridge CPUs support BLCK OCing more than just a few mhz's because the IGPU and CPU are on the same die.

The only difference between celeron G540 and pentium G620 is that G540 has 1MB less cache, and 100MHz lower clock speed. Thats the only difference.
Actually there seems to be more
Quote:
All three Celeron CPUs will pack a reduced feature set, which won't certainly include any of Intel's Turbo Boost, Hyper Threading and Quick Sync technologies or the AVX and AES-NI instruction sets.
No AVX so that pretty much removes one of the major performance benefits of SB

1- Actually the pentium models also lack AVX support. Only i3 (SB) and above support it.
Check this

Pentium doesn’t support new vector and cryptographic instructions – AESNI and AVX
2- AVX is going to be useless until developers start to make applications that use it.

Time for 10 GHZ?

According to xbitlabs review, pentium G620 (slowest SB pentium) performed better than Phenom II 565 in most cases, and 565 is one of the fastest AMD dual core.

The only difference between celeron G540 and pentium G620 is that G540 has 1MB less cache, and 100MHz lower clock speed. Thats the only difference.
So, I expect G540 to beat most (if not all) of the Athlon II X2, and some of the lower clocked Phenom II X2 (like PII 545 or 550)
Problem is Phenom architecture is over 5 years old, vs Sandy Bridge which is only 1, I can safely say, AMD has won.

These must be some very broken Sandy Bridge chips.

I can see heads flying over at the AMD building. These can't compete with the APU's can they?
