Gaming performance

Let's see how good Celeron P4600 and Pentium P6100 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Celeron P4600

We are unaware of any advantages of Intel Celeron P4600 over Intel Pentium P6100.

Advantages of Intel Pentium P6100

Intel 64 (64-bit Intel CPU architecture. Almost identical to AMD64, except small and rarely used nuances)
Enhanced SpeedStep (saves energy by managing CPU frequency and voltage in realtime. Supercedes SpeedStep)
Thermal Monitoring (prevents a CPU from overheating by lowering frequency upon reaching the critical temperature)
Execute Disable Bit (allows marking some memory ranges as non-executable, thus protecting software against so-called "buffer overflow" attacks)

So, Celeron P4600 or Pentium P6100?

Technical City couldn't decide between Intel Celeron P4600 and Intel Pentium P6100. The differences in performance seem too small.
