Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 (socket 775) processor has speed of approx 2.4 GHz and 698 intel p4 dual core socket 775 has speed of 3.4 GHz. i would like to know form those who have a good knowledge of intel cpu structure to tell us which one of these two cpu are faster for general computing taking into consideration that there is a difference of 0ne giga Hz but they have totally different structure?? many thanks
It really depends on what you want the CPU to do, Kourosh, as Topcat has said, the software to make them work hard is not there, yet. I am running a Athlon 3000+ and rarely hit 100% CPU usage.
LSemmens and topcat many thanks for your contributions. the reason i put that thread because i really want to hear form those who have experienced the
differences. i had AMD 3200 (939) but when i changed to AMD 4000 (939) i did not see much significants difference other than slightly faster pc,
but my pc still occasionally freezes when i am doing a few things simultaneously .
while i was searching for price of Intel i came across this site which is specialized on cpu specification and then i realized how many different Intel cpu exist . i wish intel instead of giving these strange names to their cpu they gave a simple description name so we know what we are buying.
does anyone know a better site than this one for cpu specification and details please let us know. Happy new year to you all
