so which would be better:

dual core celeron 1.73ghz with 1mb l2 cache or single core intel pentium 4 2.4ghz 512kb l2 cache

A:dual core celeron 1.73ghz versus single core pentium 4 2.4ghz

I don't think there are any Celeron Processors which are dual core and so the Pentium 4 will definitely be faster. If you give me model numbers I might be of more help.

There are 2 laptops.
One has a 3.0GHz single core.
The other has a 1.5GHz dual core.
The thing I'm asking is: When you buy a laptop that says it's 2.66 GHz triple core, does that mean there are 3 processors each clocked at 2.66 GHz? Or does it mean that there are 3 processors and in total they add up to 2.66 GHz?
Also, is it better to have a 3.0 GHz single core or a 1.5 GHz dual core if you want to run games?

I checked the bios it says my cpu is running at 88 it does not state whether this is F or C but I am assuming it is C. I installed everything correctly it came with its own thermal bonding pads already on the heat sink fan. It seems to run perfectly and everything else is cold so I don't know what can be causing this issue. PLEASE HELP!

A:Intel Celeron Dual Core CPU 88 Degrees

In this case, the thermal pads should be removed and thoroughly cleaned off. A good quality thermal compound like Arctic Silver should be applied sparingly. If you had to move the CPU heat-sink around even a little while attaching it to the motherboard, the thermal pad could have been rubbed off and it is not sufficient to cool the CPU now

Hey all,
I have some proprietary software that works great on a single-core processor. When I try to run it on a dual-core or above, the software loads, works once, and then messes up.

The software uses modems to dial out to our payphones. We found a work-around by turning off one processor in the bios, but then, what's the point of having a dual-core processor.

Please help. The software is doing this on Windows XP.

Today I took my Athlon 64 3200+ and replaced it with a dual core 3800+ (this is a socket 939 system). Everything went smoothly, system powered up, and cpu temperature is at 33c. My BIOS (which the latest and last for my mobo) is for dual core.

I logged on to the internet and at first no issues for about 3 minutes but then I noticed I couldn't access sites. It was like my internet connection just froze. Figuring it was one of those occasional needs to reset the router/modem I reset both by unplugging the power for 10 sec.

Nothing changed even after reset. I figured it was a dual core thing and so I installed the Windows hotfix for XP and dual cores. I also installed the AMD Dual Core Optimizer.

When I rebooted I was able to log on to the internet but accessing Amazon.com or even my mail is either really slow or froze. When I tried to log on here loading time was agonizingly slow to the point I had to disable the firewall in order to log on.

I have changed nothing with my system other than the CPU. I am at a loss. Could the firewall be the issue by the fact my hardware has changed? I doubt it but as I said I am at a loss. Thanks in advance.

Edit: Never mind. I was over at the Overclockers forums and happened to look in on their Internet & Networking forum and there at the top was the subject South Jersey Comcast. It seems others were having internet issues with the Comcast Evil Empire as well.

I am torn between buying one of two Acer laptops. Both have almost identical features--RAM, HD, webcam, 6-cell battery, memory card reader, and are the same price--$499.00 (on sale); but the processors seem to be the big difference, and I would like to know which one you folks feel I should go with.

I should also mention that the AMD laptop also has a Blue-Ray Disc drive (and read/writes normal CDs and DVDs).

The only other major difference when comparing specs is that the AMD laptop has an HD CineCrystal LED-backlit TFT widescreen display, ATI Radeon HD 4250 graphics with 256MB of dedicated system memory, supporting Unified Video Decoder 2 (UVD2), OpenEXR High Dynamic-Range (HDR) technology, Shader Model 4.0, Microsoft DirectX 10.1
.........While the Pentium laptop has CineCrystal LED-backlit display, Intel HD graphics with 128 MB of dedicated system memory, supporting Microsoft DirectX 10.

I've been driving myself crazy for the past 3 days trying to decide which one to go with and I need to decide quickly as I'm not sure how long they will be at this sale price--and I do have to stay at the $500.00 range. From the many laptops I checked out, these 2 seem to offer the most for the money. I would truly appreciate your advice!


A:AMD Turion X2 dual-core P520 2.3 GHz or Intel Pentium Dual-Core P6100 2.0 GHz?


I'm sorry to bother you folks again, but I noticed that my question had 55 views but no replies. Did I perhaps give incorrect or confusing information, or maybe posted my question in the wrong forum? I tried looking at some of the other similar questions asked, but none seemed to help with my question.

I guess I'm basically wondering that since the 2 Acer laptops are the same price, would you go with the Intel Pentium Dual-Core P6100, 2.0GHz, 3MB L3 cache, or the AMD Turion X2 dual-core P520, 2.3 GHz, 1066MHz Front Side Bus, 2MB L2 cache. This laptop also has a Blu-Ray Disc Drive, but I've read conflicting opinions on whether having this is necessary or not.

Although I consider myself to be an intermediate computer user, I am lost when it comes to processors, and also when it comes to 'dedicated amount of system memory.' I know that 'dedicated' memory is better, but does it make a difference how much there is in different brands? In other words, could the lesser amount of 128MB 'dedicated' in the Pentium still be better than the 256MB in the AMD? I'm leaning toward the AMD Turion laptop because of the higher numbers, but I've read enough to know that you can't always rely on that alone.

I'm sorry to ask my question again, but I've been given a lot of help here at CNET in the past, so I was surprised when I logged on today to see that no one expressed an opinion on which one of the two the... Read more

Hi guys. I've been looking at 2 laptops, they are basically identical but one has an Intel Core i3-4005U mobile processor and 4GB of RAM, and the other one has an AMD A4-5000 mobile processor and 6GB RAM. The guy at the store and a couple other people I know told me that the Core i3 is better than the A4 as the AMD "Quad Core" processors aren't very good, so even though the Intel i3 is only dual core it will be better than the quad core AMD. The other question is the RAM. Is 6GB that much better than 4GB or will 4GB be fine for basic use. (That's all this laptop is for. Basic use and touch apps since it will be touchscreen)

The AMD laptop is this one: Buy the HP Pavilion Notebook - AMD A4, 6GB, 15.6 at TigerDirect.ca
And the Intel here: Buy the HP TouchSmart 15.6 Notebook PC - F5W37UA#ABL at TigerDirect.ca

Last question, what the hell is DDR3L? All the new laptops have it nowadays... Is it backward compatible with normal DDR3 laptop RAM? Meaning can I take a normal laptop DDR3 4GB stick out of my dads laptop and put it into the 4GB (i3) laptop if thats the one i'm gonna get? Or does the DDR3 "L" part cause issues?

Edit: Sorry i'm not sure if this is the right place for this thread. If it isn't mods could you please move it? Thanks

A:AMD A4-5000 "Quad Core" vs Intel Core i3-4005U Dual Core

Hmm, I guess you should read some reviews. But just from the specs the AMD has 6 GB ram instead of 4. Has a DVD burner where the Intel shows no optical drive. It only has W8 8.0 where the Intel has 8.1. But some people may prefer 8.0.

Read reviews. See how each performs. If you don't wish to use it to burn DVD then the optical drive, or lack thereof may not matter to you.

Edit: Oh, and the AMD is about $80 cheaper.

AMD Athlon Dual-Core QL-67 (2.2GHz, HyperTransport? 3: up to 4.0 (GT/sec), 2MB L2 Cache)

Intel® Pentium® processor T4300 (2.1GHz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache)
thank you

A:Comparing amd athlon dual core and intel pentium dual core

They are quite similar. Both have nearly the same clock speed. Both have a total of 1MB of L2cache but the intel's is shared and the AMD's is exclusive. The intel is 45nm and the AMD is 65nm which means the AMD will run hotter most likely. The AMD gets a boost from its on die memory controller and HyperTransport links on its motherboard. Both are capable of running full 64 operating systems.

The best difference between them would be as to what is on board their respective laptop. The AMD will have quite respectable performance from its video chip as I would hope it either a Radeon HD 3200 or better a 4200 with SidePort memory. These are about the best you can get for integrated video these days. The intel will undoubtedly have a GMA4500. These don't game very well nor do they do a very good job of playing high def video. The AMD chipset should have a fairly complete selection of connectors and functions. The interl may or may not, depending on the maker.

Both chips have a TDP of 35 Watts. The intel should offer slightly longer battery life for a given series of tasks, say about a half hour.

As you can see, these two CPUs are quite similar on and of themselves, the supporting cast of laptop parts makes or breaks the deal.

So, is dual core better for running lot of little tasks, and a single core better for running tougher tasks?

Hello kf10,

CPU Frequency is often perceived as the (only) factor in cpu comparison, this is naive and wrong. Megahertz myth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
We can't tell right away without seeing the detailed specifications of each, as there are more factors affecting the overall quality of a CPU, aside from the number of cores and the CPU Frequency. If both are Intel CPUs, you can have a detailed side-by-side comparison here.

Hey guys. Got another doozy of a problem.

I got a dual core processor about a year ago because I needed the extra processing power (obviously). My mobo was pretty old, but I learned that this particular processor would work with it. For the first year, it worked fine. My computer recognized it and everything.

Well, recently, I had to reformat my computer. Problem is, my computer is only recognizing one of the cores in my processor now. In Task Manager, I can no longer set affinities. The second core doesn't show up in Device Manager. Tests that determine how my computer will run newer games all show that I have a single dual processor, even though it says "dual-core" in the name.

I'll wrap it up here. My mobo BIOS is fully updated, the processor was recognized as dual core before, and I'm using Windows XP. If you guys can think of anything I'm missing, please let me know. I'd be very appreciative.

I'm still confused with the Pentium Dual Core. Is a 2.0 GHz Pentium Dual Core faster than a 3.0 GHz Celeron?? Can I run games that says it requires 2.4Ghz or So processors?

Plz Explain.

A:Dual Core and Celeron

ya if you were going to be gaming i would go with the dual core, it also has better architecture than the celeron. Celeron was never known to be of the highest quality. Infact core 2 duo is the best bet right now with intel.
I would say yes if the game requires a 2.4 and you have a 2.0 dual core, id say ya..
If you have a celeron at 3.0ghz single core, id try it, i think it'll work. Id worry about if your graphics card could handle it, thats whats most important.

Dual Core is like having 2 CPUS's. If its a 2.0 you have 1 "cpu" running at 1ghz and another "cpu" running at 1ghz. So it splits the work and gets it done faster..

Hi there. I was just wondering if I can upgrade my processor to dual core on my Dell Dimension 4600, if it's possible. Because I went to a certain computer site, and it said that dual-core celeron Cpu's do actually work with the Dimension 4600. I do not think that this is really true because it is a Pentium 4 based motherboard. Is it not? But I bought a Pentium 4 3.06 Ghz processor for my computer. Because the Pentium 4 Cpu now in it is only about 2.80 Ghz, with a 800 Fsb rate.

But the one that I am getting is the 3.06 Ghz with a 533 Fsb rate to it. Now I believe that this is the fastest Pentium 4 that there is available. Is that so? I was just checking. Because I wanted to upgrade my Cpu, and take out the old one, and put in the new Cpu when it comes. I wanted to order a newer Cpu because I want to record VHS tapes to my computer. And for this, I have gotten a T.V. tuner card along with a Nvidia 128 MB graphics card. But that article that I read online said that my Dimension 4600 can take dual-core celeron Cpu's.

And also, it said even that it takes quad-core Cpu's too. But for this, I would probably have to buy a new motherboard for this, and take out my old one in my computer, and put the new one in, if that is even possible. Is it even? So just explain to me on what types of motherboards are compatible with my Dell Dimension 4600? Just let me know here. I saw some photos online of someone else have a Dimension 4600. And they upgraded the motherboard... Read more

A:I would like to know if I can upgrade my Cpu to a dual core Celeron

To update your CPU you will need to install a new Motherboard, and this new motherboard will require different RAM then the sticks you have. And your Power Supply Unit will need to be upgraded to work with the new motherboard. Other then the HDD and the CD drives, in essence, you need to buy a whole new computer. You can better spend your money on a New/Used computer from Ebay or Craigslist.

I did a check today on my computer because its been running slower than I thought it would when I bought it. When I ran the test it said I have 1 core working, and that the processor is at 2.36 GHz, not the 2.66 it should be at. I don't know why only 1 of the cores is working, so I was hoping one of u tech guys out there might know... Can anyone help?

Can you give specifics on your computer such as make and model # and your OS?
(if custom built; motherboard model and model#, operating system, memory amount, BIOS settings if applicable..etc)

I want to know if it's still safe to run my cpu under these tempreatures.

Currently my 2 cores tempreature are bettwen 55c-65c at 5% load. Room temp is about 36c.

Am I over the maximum core temp, will the cpu be damaged if i keep running my system and is this normal?

I'm buying a new computer with Vista home premium (32 bit), and I can't decide whether I should get a 2.4 quad core or a faster dual core (since it's cheaper).

I've searched about this but all the results I've got were from 2007, so I'm not sure if things changed much now.

So what do you think? will I benefit from the additional cores? or shall I go with faster dual cores?
appreciate your help

what is the advantage of a dual core cpu vs a single core. is a 2.4ghz cpu faster then a single core 2.8ghz? please help!

A:dual core vs single

A dual core cpu can run multiple programs or multi-threading from a single program faster and better than a single core. If you run two programs at once, they have to fight over one core in the single core machine. Having a dual core cpu is like having 2 cpu's in one computer, each of the two programs has it's own core to use, making the system faster. As far as clock speeds go, a single core that is clocked higher than a dual core would be faster if you were only running a single program or one that doesn't support muti-threading. But if you want to have more than one program running, a dual core would be faster, so long as it wasn't a huge difference in clock speed. Like a 2.4 dual core and a 2.8 single core are so close in clock speeds that I don't think you would notice a difference.

When I bought my computer (had it put together to my specs, just didn't do the physical building part myself) I know I bought a single core P4 3.0 GHz chip.

Just recently (bought my comp 9 months ago now) I was checking the "system" area in Corel Draw 12 (don't ask why, I can't even remember) and it says I have 2 cores. Huh? So then I check System Information and it shows I have TWO 3.0 GHz chips as well. Huh?? again.

How do I know for sure if I have a single or dual core? Are these system info's accurate and if not, how can I get an "accurate" read on what chip I have exactly? Is it possible I was given a dual core by mistake? LOL.

It just occured to me to check my bios, I can't remember what it said there last time I looked cuz i haven't had to check my bios more than twice since i bought comp. Will that give me an accurate read on my chip and if not, again, what will?

Thanks in advance.
