Help me with my Celeron please?
Hi there I read somewere that the new type Celerons were made out of the same die as new p3 but with half of the cache disabled dose anyone know if this is true and if so dose any one know how to enable the rest of the cache?

Yes it's true with the Celeron 800 and up
No there no way to chnage the 128K to 256K <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">
Would you like fries with that?

The celeron's have always had less cache memory (this is why they are so slow), part of the reason being when the Pentium chips are tested, any which fail the cache tests have their cache size reduced and rebadged as celeron's.
Good day to be alive, sir
Good day to be alive he says, yeah

you cannot enable the other 128k to get a total of 256k. (which everybody has said)

this would be a great trick if anyone could figure out how to do this, or disable the clock lock.
every "celermine" (new celeron, one of the celerons in fcpga format) is a pentium III w/ half of the cache disabled. not just the celeron 800 and up. every one, from the celeron II 533 and up
So, so busy lately. Oh, where do I start?

Intel hasn't done a whole lot of changes with the celerons. They finally bumped the fsb from 66 to 100mhz with coppermine core and 128k cache just recently because intel wanted to promote more PIII and P4 processors than their lower cheap line models. These Celerons are ok for older bx chipset boards as an upgrade option as long as the 1.65-1.7 volts is supported and seen in the bios. But, because of Intel's lack of major innovation on their lower end scale of processors, AMD's Duron processors definitely deserve the title "Celeron Killer".
