Overclocker's Workbench heeft interessante info gepost over de Celeron 500, die om een of andere vage reden al te koop is in Canada:
I just got it today, I live in Montreal Canada, I went to microbytes, a local shop to buy some more ram, and there is where I saw it on the counter,a regular intel celeron retail box with 500mhz written on it. I had no idea they existed,since there not even on Intel's website. First off, I didn't believe it , I thought that It was just a miss print. So, I asked the owner to fire one up for me and sure as hell it posted 500MHZ on a 66 mhz FSB. The best part is I bought it for only 310$ CANADIAN that's about 207$ US.
OK, I got a couple more things to say now. It is running on a 66mhz bus, the clock multiplier is locked but not at an even number it is X 7.58,which I find kinda odd. In real world testing I find a lot quicker than P3 450mhz. One warning thought, It is a bitch to overclock. Last night I overclocked it at 7.58X75mhz FSB that result in a 568mhz POST. Right now Im burning it in at .................. ...............wait Im getting emotional here...................................................
I got it running 7.58X83mhz FSB, with all the components removed and three fans in the front and another one in the back, at 629MHZ !!!
Im going full out, Im going to buy a kryotech renegade cooling system and some 150mhz capable HDSRAM, I will keep you all posted. Imagine the possibilities:
7,58X100mhz FSB= 758MHZ
7.58X103mhz FSB= 781MHZ
7.58X112mhz FSB= 849MHZ
Just for fun imagine, even thought it will never happen in a million years, that this processor would run at :
7.58X124MHZ = 940 MHZ
7.58X129MHZ = 978 MHZ
7.58X 133MHz = 1008 MHZ
7.58X153MHZ = 1160 MHZ I'll try to get some benchmarks for all of you.
Die multiplier van 7.58 is wel wazig, waarschijnlijk wordt hier 7,5 bedoelt.
