It is the definately speed difference, celeron is the old technology with low bus speed, a core duo is the lattest technology with high bus speed.

go for duo

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 DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE INTEL CELERON 450 AND THE INTEL PENTIUM DUAL CORE


HI,

The celeron you are looking at is single core
The pentium you are looking at is dual core (this is the one you want)

They are both physically the same size, and have the same speed, but you will get ALOT better performance out of a Dual core. A Pentium Dual-Core is a real production chip, where the Celeron series is just the chips that weren't good enough to be Pentiums. Much cheaper in quality ENJOY! RATE THISOLTUION

Difference betweeen intel celeron,core duo, mxx


Hello , Intel processors come in all shapes and sizes so I'll try to be brief by discussing only the ones that are current on the market. The market for intel processors are currently divided into 2 sides. One side if for single core processors while the other is for multi-cores. Single cores: Pentium 4, Pentium M, Celeron, Core Solo (Not very common) These cpus are single cores meaning that they only have one processor. They are relatively cheap compared to multicores. The difference between these are clock values, hyper threading, 64 bit support, and FSB. Pentium 4 and Celerons are cores found in desktops while the M is found in laptops. Single cores generally have low FSB but high clock speeds. Think of it as having a lot of water pressure but only a straw to dispense it. That's how fsb and clock values work. So single cores should provide you with a lot of raq power but they're not good at multi-tasking or jobs that requires it divide it's attention. Games like Crysis will be better with multi-cores because the pc has to generate so many different things at once while focusing on countless calculations and processes. the hyperthreading support does help the single core pentium 4s with multi-tasking but it's not as much as multicores. So if you're just looking for something with a lot of raw power. These are for you. Multi-Core Core Duo, Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad These are multi-core processors developed by intel. They are used in both laptops and desktops except for the quad. It's used in desktops only. The first 2 processors are dual cores while the last is quad cored. These processors have a high FSB rating and generally lower clock speed. So you have to be careful when looking at these. The high fsb means that the system does really really well with dividing and transferring it's processing power, but if you get a low clock speed then there's not enough power to begin with for the assignment. Example you may have a large hose but if you have low water pressure.. it's useless. That's why multi-cores are great for the modern pc user who multitasks way too much but if it's under 2.0ghz in clock speed. You should be worried about not having enough raw power to get you through intensive work. Multicores generally cost a lot more than single cores since they're relatively new technology. Btw the Core 2 Duo is faster than the Core Duo by about 7%. Meanwhile the quadcore is the ultimate in processor goodness but costs $400+. I hope these facts helped.

New CPU, No display


in my view, ur motherboard doesn't support the new processor, so plz check the capability of your motherboard, and replace with the supported cPU. ok byee

I would like to purchase a laptop. I'm confused about choosing a processor from intel dual core and core 2 duo. please help me choosing the processor


Intel Core 2 Duo is the latest laptop processor intel has made so it is newer than the original dual core. They have a few different cpu's so depending on your budget choose the core 2 duo with the fastest speed you can afford. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Can I put in a different processor


hiya

you can use practically any skt 775 cpu providing the system bus speed is supported.

you may even be able to use a core2 duo but it may need the bios updating to support it

Difference b/w Core to duo and daul core


Core 2 Duo is a Brand name by intel to identify his class of Dual core CPU

a Dual core CPU is basically two CPU in one package, which dramatically improves performance over previous architectures.

Pentium Dual Core is another brand name by Intel to identify his new entry level CPU offer.Basically Pentium dual-core are similar to Core 2 Duos except they(pentiums) are slower and cheaper.
they both are dual core CPUs.
I would prefer a core 2 Duo having to choose a laptop because of better performance, but the prize is different for the two solutions.

Re aspire 7104 being upgraded to duo core processor


No it cant be updated

Your acer aspire is based on the 910GML chipset

The Mobile Intel® 910GML Express chipset is optimized for the Intel® Celeron® M processor.

Here you can compare the 910gml chipset and 945 which is used by the core 2 duo.

http://compare.intel.com/pcc/showchart.aspx?mmID=22210,7419&familyID=7&culture=en-US

As you can see on the page there are key difrences between the chipsets other runs on ddr2, yours on ddr. the FSB support is 400 on yours and 533 / 667 on the 945.

also you can see the supported processor familys right there.

you can look for a
Intel® Celeron® M processor,
Intel® Celeron® M processor Ultra Low Voltage (ULV)


Upgrade cpu with maximum FSB of 400MHz

Cpu enquiry


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.
