    celeron speeds


    I was just wondering, is it me, or do Celerons in general tend to have weird speeds? I mean, P4s, for example, come out usually in nice, even increments, 2.4Ghz, 2.6Ghz, 2.8Ghz, etc.... Celerons, on the other hand, seem to have, er, more interesting speeds, like 2.93Ghz.... is there a reason for that, or do Celerons also usually have nicely increments speeds?

    might be teh FSB or or odd multi's. People that buy celey's typically see speeds. If Joe Sixpack is shopping for a new computer. He sees an AMD 2600+ for the same price as a celey 2.640, so he takes the celey, becuase its rated higher. Even though the AMD will csmack the crap of the celey.
