We are looking at replacing my Mum’s desktop PC, which is now around 5/6 years old. The current one has an Intel Celeron G540 CPU. Now I would have assumed that any CPU that is >5 years older than anything currently available would automatically be a lot slower. You know, Moore’s Law and all that. So I was shocked when I did the attached CPU comparison! How can a 6-year-old processor be better than something only half that age? Especially as the newer one has, if nothing else, twice the number of actual physical cores?. I freely admit that the intricacies of CPUs aren’t my forte but I though I knew the basics.
I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
