We continued to see the same picture as we saw in our previous tests, with the Sempron 3300+ and 3100+ leading the faster Celeron D 535 in both tests. The margins were broadest with Content Creation 2004 where the Celeron trailed by no less than 5.5 points. Business Winstone 2004 was a closer race, with the Celeron falling to the 3300+ by 3.2 and the 3100+ by 2.2 points.
