Lowest-priced Dual-Core is quite a charmer

Review: Celeron E1200 1.6GHz overclocks up to 3.1GHz

 

This time around our lab played host to Intel’s Celeron DualCore E1200. As you probably already know, this is the first Celeron Dual-Core, and as such it’s the lowest priced one around. Intel still offers cheaper single core Celeron processors, but E1200 packs way more muscle than its single core siblings.

We already talked about this processor and its potential overclocking ability, and we must say that we were right on the money. The Celeron core runs at 1600MHz (FSB 200MHz x 8 (multiplier) = 1600MHz). The processor has only 512kb cache memory, and it’s no coincidence that it resembles DualCore E2140 that runs at identical speed but packs double the cache (1MB).

Testbed

For our testing we used Windows XP SP2 with latest updates, as well as the newest drivers for all of our components. Our test bed contains:

Motherboard: Gigabyte X38-DQ6

CPU Cooler: OCZ Vanquisher

RAM: DDR2 Patriot 2x 1GB 1066MHz  latencies 5-5-5-12

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 250GB SATAII 7200.10

Graphics card: Gainward 7800GTX 256MB

PSU: Fortron Epsilon 700W

DVD RW: Nec 7170S SATA

CPU: Intel Celeron DualCore E1200
