Out of more than 100 CPU/system benchmarks carried out (see the OB link for all the results in full) on the Celeron G6900 and other systems, the geometric mean of all those (non-graphics) results come down to:

The Celeron G6900 overall came down to about 7% faster than the Core i3 7100 Kaby Lake processor from 2017. The Core i3 7100 originally launched for around $120 while this Alder Lake Celeron is $40~70 (or officially $42~62). However, it very much depended upon the particular workload for how well the Celeron G6900 would stack up against the Core i3 7100 and even the Sandy Bridge Core i5 2500K as well as AMD's competition with the likes of the Athlon 3000G.

As mentioned earlier in this article, no CPU package power consumption metrics for the RAPL/PowerCap interface not being properly supported with the G6900 at this time on Linux in yielding inaccurate readings.

Those wanting to go through all 100+ benchmarks of the Celeron G6900 against the other hardware tested for this article can see this result file.

When it came to the geometric mean for all of the graphics benchmarks ran separately, the Celeron G6900 was delivering similar performance to the Core i3 7100 and other low-end i3 processors tested with integrated graphics, which in turn were behind the Athlon 3000G.

So that's how Alder Lake is looking at the bottom of the stack for what you can get in the $40~70 processor range in 2022.
