In terms of overall gaming performance, the Intel Celeron 1005M 1.9GHz is very slightly better than the AMD Turion II Ultra Dual-Core Mobile M600 when it comes to running the latest games. This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to achieve more of their gaming performance potential.

The Celeron 1005M 1.9GHz was released over three years more recently than the Turion II Ultra, and so the Celeron 1005M 1.9GHz is likely to have far better levels of support, and will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Turion II Ultra when running the latest games.

The Celeron 1005M 1.9GHz and the Turion II Ultra both have 2 cores, and so are quite likely to struggle with the latest games, or at least bottleneck high-end graphics cards when running them. With a decent accompanying GPU, the Celeron 1005M 1.9GHz and the Turion II Ultra may still be able to run slightly older games fairly effectively.

More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. Problematically, unless the two CPUs are from the same family, this can only serve as a general guide and nothing like an exact comparison, because the clock cycles per instruction (CPI) will vary so much.

The Celeron 1005M 1.9GHz and Turion II Ultra are not from the same family of CPUs, so their clock speeds are by no means directly comparable. Bear in mind, then, that while the Turion II Ultra has a 0.5 GHz faster frequency, this is not always an indicator that it will be superior in performance, despite frequency being crucial when trying to avoid GPU bottlenecking. In this case, however, the difference is enough that it possibly indicates the superiority of the .

Aside from the clock rate, the next-most important CPU features for PC game performance are L2 and L3 cache size. Faster than RAM, the more cache available, the more data that can be stored for lightning-fast retrieval. L1 Cache is not usually an issue anymore for gaming, with most high-end CPUs eking out about the same L1 performance, and L2 is more important than L3 - but L3 is still important if you want to reach the highest levels of performance. Bear in mind that although it is better to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck.

The Turion II Ultra has a 1536 KB bigger L2 cache than the Celeron 1005M 1.9GHz, and although the Turion II Ultra does not appear to have an L3 cache, its larger L2 cache means that it wins out in this area.

The maximum Thermal Design Power is the power in Watts that the CPU will consume in the worst case scenario. The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU - the smaller this is, the more transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections. For both the lithography and the TDP, it is the lower the better, because a lower number means a lower amount of power is necessary to run the CPU, and consequently a lower amount of heat is produced.

Both the Celeron 1005M 1.9GHz and the Turion II Ultra have the same TDP of 35 Watts, but the Celeron 1005M 1.9GHz has a lower lithography size, and so will affect your yearly electricity bills less adversely.

CPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewCeleron 1005M 1.9GHz is a budget laptop CPU based on the Ivy Bridge micro-architecture.
Manufactured with a 22nm technology, it features 2 Cores clocked at 1.9GHz and Integrated Graphics initially clocked at 650MHz and that go up to 1000MHz in Turbo Mode. The Memory controller supports up to DDR3-1600 memory type. The Max power drawn should be of around 35W.
Its performance is reasonable but will become a bottleneck for mainstream Graphics Cards.
Turion II Ultra (codenamed Caspian) is the mobile version of the K10.5 architecture produced using 45 nm fabrication process, also known by its desktop variant Regor. It is a dual core processor, and features clock speeds of 2.4 GHz to 2.7 GHz, 2 MB total L2 cache (1 MB per core), HyperTransport at 3.6 GT/s, and a 128 bit FPU. It maintains a TDP of 35W from its predecessor Turion X2 Ultra (codenamed Griffin).
