CPU Mini Review

Mini Review The Celeron is a family of microprocessors from Intel targeted at the low-end consumer market. CPUs in the Celeron brand have used designs from sixth- to eighth-generation CPU microarchitectures. APU C-70 is a dual-core, ultra-thin, CPU targeted for small notebooks and netbooks. <br/> It offers two cores clocked at 1.0GHz (1.33GHz in turbo) and comes with integrated graphics clocked at 276MHz that go up to 400MHz in turbo mode, and have 80 Shader Processing Units. <br/> Its performance is very limited but its major feature is the low power consumption which is of just 9 Watts.

Gaming Performance Comparison

In terms of overall gaming performance, the AMD APU C-70 is very slightly better than the Intel Celeron M 410 1.46GHz when it comes to running the latest games. This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to achieve more of their gaming performance potential.

Both the Celeron M 410 1.46GHz and the APU C-70 were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

Both CPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful CPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The 2 has 1 more core than the Celeron M 410. However, while the 2 will probably perform better than the Celeron M 410, both CPUs are likely to struggle with the latest games, and will almost certainly bottleneck high-end graphics cards. { Both CPUs also have quite low clock frequencies, which means recent games will have to be played at low settings, assuming you own an equivalently powerful GPU.

More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. Problematically, unless the two CPUs are from the same family, this can only serve as a general guide and nothing like an exact comparison, because the clock cycles per instruction (CPI) will vary so much.

The Celeron M 410 and APU C-70 are not from the same family of CPUs, so their clock speeds are by no means directly comparable. Bear in mind, then, that while the Celeron M 410 has a 0.46 GHz faster frequency, this is not always an indicator that it will be superior in performance, despite frequency being crucial when trying to avoid GPU bottlenecking. In this case, however, the difference is enough that it possibly indicates the superiority of the 2.

Aside from the clock rate, the next-most important CPU features for PC game performance are L2 and L3 cache size. Faster than RAM, the more cache available, the more data that can be stored for lightning-fast retrieval. L1 Cache is not usually an issue anymore for gaming, with most high-end CPUs eking out about the same L1 performance, and L2 is more important than L3 - but L3 is still important if you want to reach the highest levels of performance. Bear in mind that although it is better to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck.

The Celeron M 410 and the APU C-70 have the same L2 cache size, and neither CPU appears to have an L3 cache. In this case, the <span class='gpu2Mention'>APU C-70</span> has a 64 KB bigger L1 cache, so would probably provide better performance than the <span class='gpu1Mention'>Celeron M 410</span>, at least in this area.

The maximum Thermal Design Power is the power in Watts that the CPU will consume in the worst case scenario. The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU - the smaller this is, the more transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections. For both the lithography and the TDP, it is the lower the better, because a lower number means a lower amount of power is necessary to run the CPU, and consequently a lower amount of heat is produced.
