The processor upgrade defends on your motherboard if it supports a processor like Core2Duo, because it all depedns on the motherboard if you can upgrade processor and RAM ,if you buy a new processor and its not supported by your motherboard it will be a wast, but if your computer manufacturer told you that your motherboard can supports a processor like Core2Duo go ahead upgrade to it , that will definitely make teh computer faster and better sicne Core2Duo is a high end processor right now..

Hope that helps...........

If your motherboard is socket 775 you can most likely upgrade, if your pentium 4 is in a socket 478 a Core2Duo will not work. Core2 is also 48 pin but has different configuration.

How can i use oracle in win 7 platform of i3 processor?and which processor is best core 2 duo or core i3?


Windows 7 Release Candidate was publically released on May 5, 2009. This should be the final release before it goes live later this year. download it, install it in a VM inside of VirtualBox and try to install Oracle on it. There is no Oracle release for Windows 7, so instead grab the Windows 2008 one. The install is pretty straight forward. The only "gotcha" is that if you go to the command prompt, you need to run it as the Administrator, so that all of the Oracle commands will work (lsnrctl, dbca, netca etc...) Really there is not that much to it as it was pretty seemless. So, if you download Windows 7, then you can also download Oracle 11g and start playing with it today!


Here is the second answer


We live in the times where computing power, once available only at the level of super computers, has been made available to the common man. The forerunner in the race, who's probably miles ahead of its competitors is the computing giant Intel. According to the needs of computer users, Intel delivers chips with varying degrees of power and clocking speed. These include the entry level, mid level and high end processors. The latest entry level Intel chips to hit the market are the core i3 processors which are aimed at taking up the place previously held by the core 2 duo processors. The new hierarchy of Intel chips in ascending order of computing power are the core i3, core i5 and core i7 processors. Although core 2 duo processors are slowly being phased out of production, they are still available in the market. In this article, I present a core i3 vs core 2 duo review which may help you decide which one to go for.

Intel Core i3 Vs Core 2 Duo Comparison

A comparison between processors was simple some years ago with a single core processor. All you had to look at was the clocking frequency and the cache size. The entry of multiple core chips changed it all and life became complicated. With dual, quad and even six core processors hitting the market, there are many more factors to be considered than before. Intel's dual core and core 2 duo processors were the first ones to introduce the multicore processor computing power. The quad processors created later have given rise to the quad core vs dual core debate, as well as the core i5 vs core i7 comparison which is something that high end computing market consumers should think about. Prior to that, we only had the 32 bit vs 64 bit processors comparison.

Today, Intel has gone through a lot of designing and planning to introduce core i3 processors that are an improvement over the core 2 duo processors. The following Intel core i3 vs core 2 duo processor comparison will give you an idea about how the i3 processors are different from their dual core predecessors. The two points of comparison will be technical specifications and the only other factor which matters that is performance.

Core i3 Vs Core 2 Duo: Technical Specifications
Like the core 2 duo processors, the new core i3 line of processors, have two cores with many other technological enhancements including an integrated GPU (Graphic Processing Unit). The clocking frequency of the core i3 series of processors ranges from 2.26 GHz to 3.06 GHz. Each processor is endowed with the new line of advanced technologies including Intel developed hyperthreading, Intel virtualization and smart cache technology which makes these chips faster than core 2 duo processors. This is the most important point in the core i3 vs core 2 duo comparison.

The Intel codename for core i3 architecture is Clarkdale. They are based on the Westmere architecture with 32 nm fabrication and a direct media interface (DMI) bus. The socket type used for core i3 processors is LGA 1156 and the RAM type is DDR3. They support mother boards with the following types of chipsets- H55, P55, H57 and Q57.

Let us have a look at the latter processors in the core i3 vs core 2 duo comparison. Core 2 Duo processors come in three types of architectures, codenamed as Conroe, Wolfdale and Allendale. With 65 nm and 45 nm fabrications they are a tad slower and less power efficient than the 32 nm based core i3 processors. The socket used for core 2 duo processors is LGA 775 and they come with a FSB bus. The FSB bus is a lot slower in operation than the DMI bus in core i3 processors.

Coupled with the fact that the i3 processors have a L2 cache size of 2 x 256 kb and a L3 cache size of 4MB, with hyperthreading and smart cache enabled, core 2 duo processors are indeed slower. On top of that, DDR3 RAM compatibility in core i3 processors, compared to DDR2 compatibility of core 2 duo processors makes them even more faster. The price range of Intel core i3 is $100 to $133, which makes them top options in the entry level market.

Core i3 Vs Core 2 Duo: Performance
The technical specifications have made it clearly indicated that Intel core i3 beats its predecessor, core 2 duo in almost all departments. This is but natural as they were indeed designed to replace them. Be it processing speed, multitasking or graphic output, opting for core i3 processors is the logical choice to make!

Hope the core i3 vs core 2 duo processor comparison provided in this article has made it easier for you to choose the right processor for your personal desktop computer or laptop computer. Going for a more advanced line of processors is always beneficial in the long run. You should also check out the Intel core i5 and core i7 processors before going ahead as they offer far more computing power and speed, compared to the entry level core i3 or core 2 duo. Decide on the processor you want according to your usage requirements and of course giving due thought to your vitamin 'M' levels!

CONFUSION WITH INTEL CORE DUO AND INTEL PENTIUM DUAL CORE!


You are worrying about nothing.

Intel Pentium Dual Core and Intel Celeron Dual Core are both Intel Core Dual processors.

The performance rate is mesured compared to a single core processor so your 2.2GHz dual core will do the same amount of work as a 4.95GHz single core.

What is the best?


Hi!

Thats not easy to tell....its all about money. But i will recomend you 3 verry good cpu:s that is not to expensive and worth the money.

1: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 3,0GHz Box
2: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3,16GHz Box
3: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2,5GHz Box

All of them are boxed, that means that you dont need to buy a separate fan

Good luck!

Uppgrade to a faster processor?


Hi 
Pentuim D is a processor that has 2 x cpu in one and a core 2 duo has 2 cpu's plus 1 smart core bigger cache 
you can only upgrade to a E2140 or E2180 processor on that motherboard 
OR replace the board with a newer type

If you want to work the actual speed for the processor of a dual core take the speed for example dual core 1.8 x 2.1 =3.78 GHz 
Core 2 Duo  1.8 x 2.4 = 4.32 GHz

Uppgrade of processor!


looks like that mobo can only suppoport up to 53 mhz front side bus for a celeron d processor
wht tht means is tht u can get any cpu tht has the front side bus up to 533mhz with the 775 socket forur motherboard

and forpentium 4 its 800mhz and agian any cpu with up to 800 mhz front side bus and 775



so ur best cpu for tht mobo would be the SL7RR it supports hyperthreading


here a direct link to intel'ssite

http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL7RR

SL7RR
3.40 GHz
800 MHz
109.6 W

512 KB
2 MB
775
0.13 µm
yes



pls rate my answer if i helped u

There really is no difference, there are differences in the E numbers though. Those are specificallt about it's GHz's, it L1 and L2 cache.

Though Intel Core 2 Duo is the same as Intel Dual Core. It's just a different name. This confusion is caused because of Intel changing the names of it's processors series. The Pentium brandname for example is gone. Intel Pentium Dual Core is now called Intel Core 2 Duo.

I hope this answered your question.
