Benchmarking the Celeron: Winstone, Specviewperf

Winstone 2001 Source: Zdnet

Content Creation Winstone 2001 keeps multiple applications open at once and switches among those applications. Content Creation Winstone 2001's activities focus on what we call "hot spots," periods of activity that make your PC really work--the times where you're likely to see an hourglass or a progress bar.

Business Winstone is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98 ME, Windows NT 4.0 (SP6 or later), Windows 2000, Windows Me, or Windows XP which runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete those activities to produce its performance scores.

Winstone 2001 Benchmark Results
Content Creation (FSB) Scores Ranking
1. P4 1.6A - 100 MHz 59.3
2. Celeron - 100 MHz


3. Celeron - 125 MHz 70.5

Business Winstone (FSB)

1 P4 1.6A - 100 MHz 37.9
2. Celeron - 100 MHz 37.6
3. Celeron - 125 MHz 40.6

Since the Winstone 2001 benchmarks use older software that don't take advantage of SSE2, the Celeron can keep up with the lower clocked Pentium 4.

SPECviewPerf 6.1.2 Source: SPEC.org

SPECviewperf™ is a portable OpenGL performance benchmark program written in C. It was developed by IBM. Later updates and significant contributions were made by SGI, Digital and other SPECopcSM project group members. SPECviewperf provides a vast amount of flexibility in benchmarking OpenGL performance. Currently, the program runs on most implementations of UNIX, Windows NT, Windows 95/98 and Linux. Higher numbers equate to better performance.

SPECviewperf 6.1.2 Benchmark Results
Processor / Test Score Ranking


1. P4 1.6A - 100 MHz 8.7
2. Celeron - 100 MHz 8.994
3. Celeron - 125 MHz 10.86


1. P4 1.6A - 100 MHz 29.25
2. Celeron - 100 MHz 21.32
3. Celeron - 125 MHz 25.22


1. P4 1.6A - 100 MHz 26.38
2. Celeron - 100 MHz 27.71
3. Celeron - 125 MHz 33.07

SPECviewperf paints a different picture here. only in the DRV_07 test does the Celeron lose to the P4. The rest seem to like the extra CPU speed.
