One of the common trends when benchmarking the Celeron G6900 across dozens of workloads was finding the Celeron G6900 most often performing similar to the Core i3 7100, the Kaby Lake 2c/4t processor from 2017 that launched at around $120 USD.

But in some real-world workloads like WebP image encoding, the Celeron G6900 does come out ahead of the i3-7100 and even the 4-core i3-8100 in workloads less reliant on multi-threading and able to benefit from the Golden Cove microarchitecture.

For the simdjson library for high performance JSON parsing, the single-threaded workload does especially well on the Celeron G6900... Granted, aside from some very budget-focused developers, there isn't much of an intersection between Celerons and JSON parsing.

For heavy threaded workloads like the Xmrig miner on the CPU or Zstd compression, the Celeron G6900 comes in behind the Core i5 2500K Sandy Bridge processor.
