Question about Intel Celeron D 335, 2.8 GHz Processor
I own a IBM ThinkPad G40 with a Intel Celeron, are all Intel Celeron's the same, I think they came out around 2000. I would like to get the highest thats out for my G40, I use my G40 for games such as Command & Conquer 3
I know how you feel, you want to improve your situation but not spend a lot of money, and squeeze some more out of what you already bought. You have a latop that works, no need to get rid of it. The problem is that CPUs on laptops are really not made to upgrade. The overwhelming amount of data out there tell us that it's actually just easier and sensible to buy a new one. I know that's not what you want to hear, but- 1) celeron chips are really not designed for gaming, although that doesnt mean you can play simple games on them 2) if your chip is a celeron, it means your laptop was not a high-end one that had the pentium chip plus all the other higher-end (faster) components that support it. That means that even if you bump up your celeron to one a bit faster, it will still have all the slow components around it. 3) the motherboard limits what you can do-- it will not let you upgrade to the fastest celeron out there, but will allow you to upgrade withing a narrow range of celerons. This is because as chips get faster, the companies change the way they attach to the motherboard, and newer chips dont attach to older montherboards. 4) the main determinant of gaming is your graphics card, then RAM, and these wont be affected by upgrading your CPU. 5) even if you were to replace your celeron, you'd have to pay a decent ammount for it, maybe 100 bucks, and I've seen new laptops sell for 399 to 499 entry level. For me, I'd rather scrape up the extra 300 bucks and just get a new laptop, which will have the new CPU (much faster than the fastest celeron), new graphics card, probably much more ram than your system can now support. Don't mean to rain on your parade! Good luck.
