Looking Under the Hood with CPU-Z
Sometimes we like to load comparison shots of CPU-Z to give a clearer breakdown of how one processor compares to another. We didn't find any surprises here, just a concise way of showing each chip's differences. When comparing the two Sempron processors, differences in L2 cache and SSE3 Instructions are most notable, as we previously discussed. The Celeron D 535 is one of the highest clocked Celerons available and a good comparison as AMD is targeting the 3300+ directly at the fastest Celeron you can find.
AMD Sempron 3300+ @ 2.0GHz
Intel Celeron D 335 @ 2.8GHz
AMD Sempron 3100+ @ 1.8GHz
Next, we'll breakdown the HH Test Bed and start the benchmarks off with a few popular synthetic tests.
