3 out of 5 eggs It was better than the 1.6 single core celeron 04/28/2014

This review is from: Intel Celeron E1500 Conroe Dual-Core 2.2GHz LGA 775 65W Processor HH80557PG049D

Pros: Dual core 2.2Ghz, took windows 7 from a 3.7 to a 5.4 on cpu from a 1.6Ghz Single core Celeron. Worked in a Dell inspiron 530s.

Cons: Old tech. . . price vs performance is low.

Other Thoughts: This made the computer nearly twice as fast and gave it multicore capabilities. Yeah, it's old but at least it's do able, dropped it into a Dell 530s that shipped with a 1.6Ghz cpu. No way to upgrade the MoBo and not a lot of choice out there for processors that will work. It was put into a friends computer and will do what he needs it to do for a few more years at least and even after that point can be used as a HTPC.

The 1.6Ghz cpu could not keep up with Windows7 running chrome and playing audio through pandora and transferring a file. The audio would skip and even drop out totally. With this it does a whole lot better, didn't skip while loading photoshop.

Computer also got a radeon 5450 along with the cpu to bring the score up to a total of 4.7 from a 3.2 the low point now being desktop graphics and to an average of 5.42 from a 4.26 so not too bad overall to give a little life to a computer.

Pros: Half height card for a compact form factor pc with cruddy built on the board intel video chip. Does pretty good so far, video is a lot faster/smoother than it was.

Cons: Half height bracket included was only for the DVI and HDMI. Had to modify one of the removed slot fillers to accept the VGA portion. Even though a lot of people don't use VGA when they get a higher end card having the option is always a plus. Looses one egg for that IMHO.

Drivers on disc were probably old, downloaded current from AMD.

Other Thoughts: Tossed this into a friends computer for movies, surfing the web and some little games. Win 7 desktop was even graphically slow so this is a big improvement. Onboard graphics was rated at about a 7 passmark and 5450 is around 250 passmark so worth it for a cheap upgrade.

For those looking for codecs, don't blame the card. No graphics card actually includes codecs the player does and Windows 8 did not ship with codecs for dvd playback. Go look up K-Lite and get some for free.
