Default OCing a 2800+ Sempron

Want I want to know if a Sempron 2800+ is faster than a 2.8GHz Celeron D, and if it isn't, could I OC so it would be?

the Celeron D is a dual core CPU. the Sempron will perform about the same as the Celeron when running single threaded programs (will only use one core) but in multithreading programs, even being overclocked won't put the Sempron ahead.

however if you compare it to a Celeron (not Celeron D) 2.8, you can certainly overclock it and make it faster, provided your motherboard and RAM can also handle it

Since when is Celeron D dual core?

If that was the case the Celeron D would have been the first dual core to hit the market,The Celeron D is not a dually it's just a little 64bit cpu,They are planning on making dual core Celeron's but they won't be out for a while

Check here for bench's about the Celeron D vs Sempron,The Sempron beat's the Celeron every time

hmm, okay. I thought they just took after the Pentium D's.
Intel haven't got very good names for their processors....

No the Celeron D is based on the prescott.

if the Pentium D is dual core, and Celeron D is not, what is the dual core Celeron going to be called?
Intel seem confused right now....

but anyway, back on topic. what's your motherboard?

yeah Celeron D is just a beefed up version of the older Celeron with 256k cache added...I'm pretty sure I remember reading Intel dropping the Pentium/Celeron scheme altogether and is just going to call a CPU an Intel 3.2GHz or an Intel 670 etc.
