Any Comments on the New 400 MHz Celerons ??

Post by (John Auld » Sun, 17 Jan 1999 04:00:00

I am looking at upgrading my hardware to run RedHat Linux 5.2 and I am
interested to hear your view on the choice of current CPU's.

400 Mhz Celeron chips with a 128kb cache have come on the market at a
good price, but the older Celerons can be overclocked to 450 Mhz.
Given that the older chips are cheaper, has any one got any advice on
the best choice of chip? Is it worth overclocking for an extra 50 MHz?

Can the 400 MHz  Celeron be overclocked to higher speeds?

Can it be run in dual CPU configurations (no news about this new chip

Thanks in advance for your help.

1. celeron 300a vs 333, 366, 400... celerons

I keep hearing what a good deal the celerons(with 128 l2 cache are). But
all I here about is the 300a. Is this because it is the cheapest, or the
easiest to overclock ?Why would someone recommend the 300 a over the
333, 366, 400, or 450 celerons, with cache, if I were to purchase one of
these, what motherboard should I buy?
Opinions on the longevity of slot 1 vs socket 370's would also be
appreciated. Some celerons run on socket 370, right? Which should I opt
why should I get a celeron instead of an amd k6-2 or -3. or  a p2 for
that matter?
