Here's a new Anandtech Review of the new Prescott-based Celeron. For you Intel fans this certainly is a big performance improvment (FSB goes to 533). I read the whole article but couldn't find a mention of heat output.....which of course affects computer noise. Proposed prices are ok....

I like the Celeron/478 because you can usually upgrade to the fastest P4 without a MB change. I suppose your MB must have Prescott support to run this new chip.

Yeah, anandtech is solely about overclocking. They have cool stuff but are absoltely not interesting in the silent stuff. All past articles where an disappointment in this subject.

Ah, bout bloody time they increased the cache on these muffins.

Celery's used to be outdone by a Wilamette or Northwood 1 GHz slower (clock for clock), on ground of the cache alone (let alone FSB).

I still stand by my statement that the "slowest" P4 out there will pretty much always outperform a celery at similar price :).
