Hi : can anyone explain please :
Let me start with the results of my barton 2500+ with 512ddr 400
The test is on si soft sandra 2002:
Arithmatic : dhrystone = 5040
Whetstone = 2529
Multimedia : integer = 9914
Floting-point = 11595
Mem bandwith : ram int buffered = 2163
Float buffered = 2028
Now the results of my grandpa,s celeron 2400 fsb 400 with 256mb ddr266:
(In the same order)
arithmetic : 4662
1294/2992
multi media :9451
11664
mem bandwith : 1912
1963
the results of the celeron are just alittl bit lower than the barton but when i overclocked the celeron up to 2700 it kicked the a** of my barton
also the ram,s results became better than my rams!!!
Ddr [email protected] better than my ddr 400!!!

I know my rams aren,t giving good results becase the barton runs at fsb 333 but still faster than 300
By the way here are the results of the overclocked celeron :
Arithmetic: 5109
1414/3269
multi media : 10325
12742
mem bandwith : 1899
2177
so can anyone explain???!!! It,s just a celeron not p4 !!!

The Arithmetic tests just show the increase in clock speed benefits the Celeron in the way of ALU and FPU performance, and mind you it's not by a large margin. Memory differences can be attributted to differences in memory controllers and memory timings, and again, the difference was very small.

i know the differences are very small but i thought the celeron was much weaker than the xp so i thought i should get much higher marks on my barton

The only major difference between a Celeron and a Pentium 4 is the L2 Cache, which is pretty important when running tasks like games or such. But running pure number crunching apps like Sandra it won't matter as much and its performance will show to be higher, but your Barton will still beat it in gamings and such. Try running 3DMark01SE and you should see what I'm talking about.
