intel core 2 duo and 698 intel p4



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

In theory the 3.4Ghz should be the Quicker of the two, however it's very unlikely that you will have, now, or in the immediate future, any programs that will be capable of fully utilising the speed potential.
I run the Dual core2 Pentium and whilst the programs zip along nicely the CPU usage is very low, which is indicative of having spare capabilities.

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.
