Uppgrade to a faster processor

Hey!
I have a Prescot pentium 4 2,93 Gzh processor in my computer. My question is if I can uppgrade with any stronger P4 or if it must be a Prescot. I also wonder if there is any other kind of procesor I could use than P 4 and which one in that case would be the optimal. My computer has a 775 socket.
Packard Bell says that my motherboard also supports Intel Pentium D Dual Core Technology. What does it mean? Is it the same as Intel Core 2 duo?

To decide cpu compatability we would know the model of the motherboard.

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

SOURCE: 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

Should I upgrade my P4 2.66 Ghz Processor or buy a new computer

I have a acer 210t laptop with a 700 processor. can I upgrade to a faster processor and if so which one and how fast. Thank you.


Some laptops have "mobile" CPUs (physically smaller, and consuming less power) than the typical "desktop" CPUs.

So, if you know "how" to disassemble your computer, you may be able to remove the heat-sink & fans on top of the CPU, remove the CPU, and install a faster one.

However, if your current CPU is of the "Pentium III" series (which ranged from 500 Mhz to about 1400 Mhz), you may not be able to find a CPU that will be significantly faster than your current 1.26 Ghz CPU.

Instead, I would check the disk-drive -- if it is 4200 RPM or 5400 RPM, I would replace it with a 7200 RPM disk-drive, for better I/O speeds, and thus help your computer go "faster".

Also, I would add more RAM, again to make your computer go "faster".

Dual Core VS Single Core


basically it depends on the Bus speed of the processor. if u r using the single core processor with high bus speed it means u r using faster one then the low bus speed core 2 duo. n the other thing is depends on the system memory (ram), if the Ram is compatible with Processor speed n processor bus speed, ur pc will work faster...

good luck

Processor grades


The fastest processor that you can get right now on the market is the i7 from intel, it is the fastest on the market today. Core 2 duo performs faster than a pentium R

Uppgrade of processor!


Either there is a problem with the physical fitting of the processor, or the motherboard is not equipped to handle said processor, even with a bios revision.

Uppgrade of a processor


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...........

Well mishel, its a little yes, a little no. yes you can upgrade your processor, but not all the way to 4.3ghz, with whats in your computer now, the only processors that will fit are of socket 478, its one of Intel's older chips. There faster chips to date clock in around 3.0-3.4, and that's with four cores, if you need a faster chip, you need to get another motherboard, and with your case that can be a problem. The best processor I could find was 3.0ghz and under $100 on newegg.com. Good Luck
