Intel Celeron G530

Intel G530 is one of the entry level Sandy Bridge processor from Intel, it has comes with 2.4GHz of clock speed, Intel LGA1155 socket and it's dual-core processor type, yes it's one of Intel Celeron type. As we know that Intel Celeron is basic processors line-up from Intel that comes with standard features, but today, there is something beautiful from it. Intel G530 is Celeron series that has comes from Intel Sandy Bridge family, and we are know that Sandy Bridge has shown powerful performance, even it can beat almost all AMD processor in the same class, wow.. nice huh?

Intel Celeron G530 Basic Specifications
- Clock speed : 2.4GHz
- Intel Type : Celeron (Sandy Bridge line-up)
- Dual-core processor
- 2 Threads
- Intel HD Graphics integrated video (850 MHz)
- Dual-Channel memory supported (DDR3-1066)
- Intel Smart Cache : 2 MB
- 64-bit instruction set supported
- 32 nm lithography
- Max TDP : 65 W
- Price : $42

While Intel Pentium G series comes with 3MB of memory cache, Celeron has comes with only 2MB, but it's okay. So if you looking for small computer for your home, you can put Intel G530 into your socket LGA1155 motherboards, don't forget all Sandy Bridge processors uses socket 1155 type (not for LGA2011 Sandy Bridge series), so you can easy to upgrade it and replace the Intel G530 with Intel i3, i5, even i7 Sandy Bridge.

What about the Intel G530 celeron performance? you can check it here
Average CPU mark : 2303 (via cpubenchmark.net)
What about the Intel G530 gaming performance or benchmark result? well I have seen it and the G540 edition (with 2.5GHz) has wont from AMD Athlon X2 250!! Intel G540 can beat X2 250 on Crysis 2, Far Cry 2, Dirt 3, StarCraft 2 !!!

With slower clock speed (2.4GHz) from G540 (2.5GHz) you can see that Intel Celeron G530 is good entry level processor for 3D gaming, and I thing Intel G530 and Intel G540 is almost the same, and the performance will not so far in result. Enjoy your days.
