In terms of overall gaming performance, the Intel Celeron N2805 1.46GHz is marginally better than the Intel Celeron M 450 2.0GHz 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.

The Celeron N2805 1.46GHz was released over three years more recently than the Celeron M 450, and so the Celeron N2805 1.46GHz is likely to have far better levels of support, and will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Celeron M 450 when running the latest games.

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 Celeron N2805 1.46GHz has 1 more core than the Celeron M 450. However, while the Celeron N2805 1.46GHz will probably perform better than the Celeron M 450, 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 N2805 1.46GHz and Celeron M 450 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 450 has a 0.533 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 Celeron N2805 1.46GHz.

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 N2805 1.46GHz and the Celeron M 450 have the same L2 cache size, and neither CPU appears to have an L3 cache. In this case, the Celeron N2805 1.46GHz has a 38 KB bigger L1 cache, so would probably provide better performance than the Celeron M 450, 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.

The Celeron N2805 1.46GHz has a 23 Watt lower Maximum TDP than the Celeron M 450, and was created with a 43 nm smaller manufacturing technology. What this means is the Celeron N2805 1.46GHz will consume significantly less power and consequently produce less heat, enabling more prolonged computational tasks with fewer adverse effects. This will lower your yearly electricity bill significantly, as well as prevent you from having to invest in extra cooling mechanisms (unless you overclock).

CPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewA power optimized processor for SoC notebooks. Very low power consumption, as well as very limited performance. Only very modest games will run optimally.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.
