  • ITX vs PIII Celeron

    I have yet to hear anything that resembles actual testing on this, only opinions. If anyone has an idea, that would be great. I am trying to decide betweeen a M1000 Neh ITX board, or use my current PIII Coppermine Celeron 600 that I overclock to 900mhz. It has run at this speed for over two years w/o a problem. My question is, which is going to give me better performance. DIVX especially. I have some Divx movies that run my processor at 100%, and really can't do anything else while playing (tho they are fairly stutterless). Others I have aren't as bad. My board is an old 440bx, with only udma66, if that may be it. I am using an 80gb maxtor drive as a source E. My Main C is on an embedded Ultra 2 SCSI run 9gb IBM drive.
    Just wondering which would be better to use. I wouldn't use this board, but a newer board :815g, or 810, or a via/sis version chipset on a MATX board.

    Thanks for your help/suggestions

      I guess I don't know computers well enuf to figure it out. Are you saying that it is better than a celeron and closer to s full P3, at the same Mhz, or less??
      This is what I am looking to compare to. I understand that a lot of real world use and other components adds to the mix and usability as well, but I was hoping for a more informative answer/lead to info than that.
      Thanks anyway.

      Anyone else have an idea???
      I know MANY here use the ITX

      Thanks

        most people here use mini-itx because of the size and low power consumption. and its sufficient to run anything you need in the car.

        I can't say much about the celeron ... i've always shyed away from them...

          I've preferred the celeron for a carputer here especially since I'm an arizona resident where the REAL heat is. Well not right now but during the summer it gets as hot as 120 degrees here and the trunk sometimes gets as hot as 130 degrees so it's 130 plus the cpu's heat. The celerons are cool running cpus and they have throttling enabled so if it gets too hot it slows down to 50% it's speed but at the same time i don't sacrifice performance because my celeron is 1.7GHz so 50% of that is around 800MHz to 1GHz and I've never had any problems with mine. I'm using a FlexATX mobo in a small PC that is pretty small - not as small as the ITXs but suits me well.

            I personally have never liked celerons
            they just never really hit the mark with me

            if heats a problem then some itx boards, from what I understand, are fanless, so with my school of thought (Bigger is Better) by slapping a fan (or bigger fan) to it will counter any extra heat caused by your local ambient temp....

            then again I drink alot when I go researching so I could be totally wrong

              so again, I ask:

              which is probably more powerful??

              Is the 1ghz neh more/about the same/less powerful than a 900mhz P3 celeron?

                The 1GHz VIA will be a little less powerful over all, but will produce a lot less heat and use less power, and make no/little noise.. IMO, it's a better choice to go with the VIA.
