P1 Gen 2 - Which Processor ?

Q: P1 Gen 2 - Which Processor ?

I am replacing my P52 Xeon with a P1 Gen 2. When I ordered the P52, I thought the Xeon would be considerably faster but that wasn't the case. Now I am facing the choice of an i7-9850H 6 core @ 2.6 GHz or i9-9880H 8 core @ 2.3 GHz. The i7 has a faster base clock speed. On CPUBenchmark, the i7 has a better Single Thread Rating. I don't do video or anything super multi-threaded. Mainly VMware. So, is the i9 at $270 more a worth it and will I see a benefit ? Otherwise, I might as weel keep my $270 extra... TIA

So, i got this message after i upgraded my Asus Notebook to Windows 10 Home from 8.1. What got me to check this was having my laptop Hard Shutdown when the power was at 100% and the laptop had been on the charger all day, plus the CPU temperature was normal. I went into event viewer to see if there was any ACPI error's listed and this came up.

The exact Error that's provided via Event Viewer: Collaborative processor power controls on processor 5 in group 0 are disabled due to a firmware problem. Check with the computer manufacturer for updated firmware. This message is provided for each of my Processor Cores

Unfortunately, there are no new Firmware Updates for my laptop model from Asus. Last one was pushed in October 2014. Very odd seeing as i got this new in December 2014.

I want to know if this is something serious, or if i should just ignore it. An error having to due with Kernel Level Power Controls seems serious to me.

I am a developer who needs to travel a lot. I use a broadwell i7 laptop with 10GB RAM. I generally run JBOSS/Websphere Application Server with MYSQL and R mathematical programming language. All are computationally heavy softwares. I dont do anything else, no gaming, no video rendering.Few hours back I ordered a T480s laptop with i8550u processor being lured by the promise of high productivity in a  lighter weight system. But then I looked into T470p with i7700hq, a cheaper option, and got quite confused. Some of the websites are praising i7 8550u processor, though being underclocked, as equal to i7700hq in computational power. Some are pegging i7700hq as far superior and at cheaper cost too.Definitely lighter is better for my backpack. But I wish I could carry a workstation with me. I guess I can forego the performance enhancement of i7700hq if it less than 10%.  I need an advice. I think I can still cancel the order and buy T470s. 













Solved!

Go to Solution.

A:T480s(i7 8550u processor) and T470p (i7 7700hq) processor

the main difference is the TDP. this affects how much cooling the processor requires, and how much sustained work it can do.Edit: TDP is Thermal Design Power (put simply, how much power it consumes and heat it puts out)The i7-7700HQ (I assume this is what you mean since the 7700k is a socketed desktop part) has a 35 watt TDP, and correspondingly powerful cooling system. It can work at full power for extended periods on time without downlocking.The i7-8550U has only a 15 watt TDP. It also has a cooling system meant to handle just 15 watts. (these cooling systems are also a lot lighter weight and more compact as you've seen). Initially, it probably has about the same processing power as the 7700HQ (both are 14 nm quad cores with hyperthreading, at pretty close frequencies), but the 8550U will quickly downclock once it gets hot.The result is a processor that feels blazing fast for short term tasks, but has a low average power consumption and can be cooled by a small ultrabook's cooling system.For you, it depends on what your workload is. If you're entering some math equation, and then let it solve for a minute, then give it a minute or 2 of rest while you enter the next one in, the 8550U will work perfectly.If it's continuously working on long spreadsheets etc that take 5+ minutes to solve then you're going to want the 7700HQ and its host's better cooling system.

I recently upgraded to a HP,Media Center editon pc, Windows XP, AMD Athlon 64 3800+2.4 GHz Processor.

When trying to install Photoshop Album 1.0, I receive this message, "This operating system is not supported by Adobe Photoshop Album. We support Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 , XP Intel Pentium III or 4 processor".

Could my problem with installation be the Athlon processor? When purchasing this computer, our salesman convinced us that the Athlon was just as good as the Pentinum Processor. Any thoughts on this? My computer is less than a week old and having serious thoughts about returning it. I have had problems with other installations. Am I to expect more problems with software and the Athlon processor. Any helpful suggestions will be appreciated. I am getting desperate for advice about the processor.
 

A:Athlon Processor versus Pentinum Processor in Windows XP

What the message is telling you is that Windows Media Center Edition 2005 is not one of the operating systems that Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0 supports. It has nothing to do with whether an Intel processor or an AMD processor is installed. I checked the system requirements for the newer version 2.0, and it also is not supported by Windows MCE 2005.

By the way, Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0 has a 13.5 MB patch for it and will upgrade it to version 1.0.1. You can get it from here.

A:Diff between centrino processor and core 2 duo processor

In a word nothing, the centrino branding does not refer to any specific additions to the processor, it is simply a label that is attached to laptops which use intel branded processor, integrated graphics and wireless chips.

Centrino is more of a marketing tool that Intel use to boost sales of their graphics and wireless chips, so you can pretty much ignore it

Quad processors are darn expensive. You can have a hand in helping me build my new laptop.

Speed is a priority: when I use my computer for PLEASURE, I can deal with an occasional slowdown. When I use my computer for a WORK or a SCHOOL project and I experience a slowdown, I feel like breaking bodies or punching a hole in the wall.

I'm buying a new laptop. I'll be using it primarily for work and school. I'd say 80% of the time that I use the laptop it will be used for serious 9-5 business stuff, primarily work and school.

That's why when I customize my new laptop I'm going to customize it with 8 gigs of RAM and a quad core processor, to have as much speed as possible and as high a flow rate as possible. Is that a good build strategy?

My work/school laptop will:

>be used for heavy Internet duty

>be used heavily for programs like Dreamweaver, Photoshop and Flash

>i will not be using it for computer games but note: if i have to sell the laptop on Craigslist in a year or two I'd like this laptop to appeal to gamers so I can sell it quicker, faster

>i don't have a lot of disposable income. The quad processor costs a few hundred dollars more. Since I'll be using my computer for work and school, and since I might be making more money a year from now, If I have to (and with your advice) I'll pay the extra cost

Hi
We are trying to analyze the CPU Utilization of our servers. We had two questions:
Question 1

When using PerfMon, we notice two very similar objects, with almost identical descriptions:Processor \ % Processor TimeProcessor Information \ % Processor TimeIt's unclear what the difference is between the two and/or which one we should use when analyzing performance. I noticed that SCOM uses the Processor Information object, as does perfmon by default when you first open it.I noticed that Processor Information uses the NUMA identifier to display each CPU, while
Processor just lists them numerically in order
Question 2

Which metric is Task Manager using when displaying CPU utilization?And is Task Manager just displaying the 1 second interval refresh that I would see in PerfMon?

I need to order a new desktop for my office to replace a 3 year old machine that runs at 3.2 Ghz. The new machines that Dell offers only has this option:

Hello everyone,

I want to build a new system, and I was wondering just what the differences between a sever processor and a desktop processor are.

Would I see gaming performance decrease by using a Quad Server Core or a Quad Desktop Core?

I wanted to build a dual socket server core and have 8 physical cores.

Thoughts?
 

A:Server Processor Vs. Desktop Processor

I dont think any games are designed to take advantage of a dual socket setup. Windows Server OS's are designed to take advantage of dual socket setups. Some newer games are coming out which take advantage of single socket dual or quad core setups on desktops. A server based PC would not gain any performance for games IMO. You are better off investing the extra $ in a good video card.

If that's not possible, would it be possible to move up to a 3rd generation or 4th generation i5 or i7 processor for my model notebook?Hi,HP use different Intel motherboards for dual and quad core laptops. Your laptop is probably only for dual core (Core i3 and i5) processors for 35W. Core i7 processors use 45W and more so Core i7 chips won't probably work.You cannot use 3rd or 4th gen processors on your laptop. The 4th generation use completely different socket (I think) and the 3rd one use the same socket, however it's not electronically compatible with the Sandy Bridge chipset. There is not much difference between Sandy and Ivy Bridge laptops. Haswell (4th gen) use more ultra low voltage processors so both previous generations are actually even more powerful with the mobile (M) CPU versions and there is no need for an upgrade. I have still an Ivy Bridge laptop (signature) and won't upgrade any time soon because there is nothing better to upgrade to.

A:64 bit processor? Do I have one?

Virtually every chip over the last 5 years, probably a lot more, is 64 bit. The quad are all of that type. The distinction between 32 and 64 bit is almost entirely a software issue. 64 bit chips were hailed, when they came out, as the greatestt hing ever, unfortunarly MS didnt feel like writing huge amounts of new code ( I assume anyway) and stuck with 32. So while the hardware tech is there, the software support wasnt.
So yes, 64 will work fine. However, in terms of gaming, I dont think you will find any real difference. Drivers are rarer for 64 bit systems, and some hardware may not work as a result. If you know you can get drivers for everything, then by all means go for it. there are 64 bit versions of a few games, byt many ar still 32. As such, I would say go for 32 for now, them compatability wont be an issue

Yes, you must have compatible hardware to run a 64-bit OS and that includes having a 64-bit processor.

You might need a certain minimum for a processor but I am certain you don't need Vista 64-bit for Office 2007. My copy of Ultimate Office 2007 is designed for XP, certified for use with Vista, and the only mention of 64-bit is the box says that the Groove 2007 folder syncronization is not available for any 64-bit OS.

i'm pretty new at building systems so you'll have to forgive me if i'm being stupid.

i just bought an INTEL CELERON D 3.2GHZ PROCESSOR SL96P

and when i came to fit it there are no pins on it. so it won't fit into its slot. am i being stupid by expecting there to be pins?
 

A:My Processor

Socket LGA 775 processors do not have pins, they fit motherboard sockets with spring loaded contacts built in to the socket.

You will need to return it (if you can) and exchange it for a socket 478 part that has pins, or get a new socket 775 motherboard.

I am thinking about buying a pc with a AMD 64 bit processor. Is all my software that I use now be able to run on a 64bit machine?

A:AMD 64 BIT Processor

Be careful upgrading to 64-bit, especially an AMD. The Intel 64-bit processor can handle regular 32-bit code, but AMD went the whole hog and they ONLY run 64-bit code. You'll need the 64-bit version of windows for a start (unless you plan to run an alternate OS), and any software you have already which doesn't have a 64-bit code version will be useless I believe.

It really does come down to the individual piece of software. Look into each of them and see if they have a 64-bit version.

I hope this is the right board to post this question...How do I tell what type or speed of a processor that I have? It is a Gateway Astro computer and it says celeron processor on a sticker on the computer but how fast is that? Thanks
 

A:Processor

Go to start/run and type dxdiag. This will load up the DirectX diagnostic program.

Towards the middle your processor type and speed will be listed.
