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!

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".

I want to upgrade my processor on my Acer 3810T


your prossesador. is very good, you have a SU9400,intel core 2 duo , your laptop only accepts SU9000 CPU series, there are only 3, SU9300 1.3 GHz, SU9400 1.4GHz and SU9600 1.6 GHz which is its maximum choice, with a current estimated cost , $ 289 dls, in my opinion you will not notice much difference in performance, remember that many factors that influence good performance, although its prossesador runs only at 1.4GHz, has 3 MB cache , is much faster than previous prossesadores 2 GHz and 2.8 GHz, if you feel that your laptop is slow, maybe it's time for a good cleaning viruses, Spybot and a disk defragmentation, I hope have been useful

Upgrade my Toshiba Satellite m105 s3041 processor (intel centrino


i assume that you've already run a utility to eliminate temporary files, clean the registry, cut down on background applications, and done a deep virus scan to eliminate anything stealing processing cycles. You might monitor your processor usage in the Windows Taks Manager - Performance to make sure the system is using the additional memory.
The only other thing would be to replace your HDD with a 7200 RPM drive for faster data access.

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

Upgrading IBM ThinkPad T20 Intel Pentium III to Intel Pentium 4


Patrick, I'm glad to see your enthusiasm to explore and expand on your computer knowledge. Unfortunately I have to be the first to let you know that in this case your ideas on upgrading your systems by simply changing the processors just won't work.

First of all a Pentium 4 (or Centrino, which is the mobile version) literally will not fit into any of the systems you mention. All CPUs are made in specific form factors to fit into different sockets. Most Pentium 4 processors were made for Socket 478 or 478B sockets, which mean they have 478 pins on a chip roughly an inch and a quarter square. The high number of pins allow more signals and data to be passed simultaneously to the motherboard, one way the speed of the CPU operations were increased. Pentium III and older Celerons were mainly socket 370 chips on a chip almost an inch and three quarters square. The lesser number of pins were aligned in six concentric rows with a blank central square. Pentium II and even older Celerons used Socket 7 and any of a half dozen other schemes and were often put on daughtercards to make them somewhat interchangeable. It would be like trying to put a square peg in a round hole.

They also make other forms, like socket 775, 939, and the newest AM2, all of which are pin-incompatible. In certain situations there are adapters that will let you put a newer CPU into an older socket but the specific upgrades you mention have no equivalent.

There are other engineering factors to be considered as well. Not all CPUs run on the same voltage. Many desktop motherboards have been designed that are adjustable either by selecting the operating speed with jumpers (old style) or by electrically sensing the optimum speed of the CPU. Then there are the memory and bus speeds. The CPU has to be able to interact with the memory so they must share a signal speed. This is the Front Side Bus. Older Pentium 4 CPUs were designed to use PC-133 memory but more powerful CPUs. certainly any in the 2.0GHz and up range, are designed for Double Data Rate (DDR), which is PC-2100 up to PC-3200. The pin configuration of the memory is different also to reflect and optimize the faster design. Of course there is now a DDR2 design and most recently DDR3. Core-Duos and Quads use the DDR2 and DDR3 type memory.

Another factor is heat. Faster CPUs run hotter. the system must be designed to accomodate and release the greater amount of heat generated, thus there are larger heatsinks and fans and more vent holes. Otherwise the CPU would start acting erratically and eventually burn out.

Things would be slightly different if you were talking AMD chips, as the socket 472 was much more versitile and could handle a wider range of CPUs and speed, from Duron to Sempron to Athlon XP, all because of the way AMD designed their chips. Of course, they too had to upgrade to surpass physical limitations, leading to the socket 754 and other newer designs.

Desktop machines are much more flexible to upgrade because of the space available and the fact they are designed with expansion slots. If you need a higher video card to run games, or more com ports to run extra printers or whatever, you can generally place a card in a slot to add the functionality. If you reach the design limits of a motherboard you can usually swap it out. Not so with laptops.

Laptops in particular are hard to upgrade because everything is integrated into or designed to plug into the motherboard, which has to fit the case properly like a jigsaw puzzle. This is not to say it is impossible to upgrade somewhat, but usually for laptops it means putting a faster CPU of the same form. Here is an example that is specifically for the IBM T40 laptop:

http://bsnugroho.com/t40upgrade.aspx

No, if you want to upgrade to Pentium 4 or Core Duo or Core Quad speed and performance, you will have to go out and buy a laptop.

Please do not let this discourage your enthusiasm. You share the spirit of the old school to push the limits that has made all of these computer evolutions possible. Consider formal training to round out your knowledge and to expose you to more within the field.

Are they compatible?


Hi, your cpu currently in the machine should be a 754chipset, only way you would be able to put a core duo processor in the machine would be to replace the motherboard, cpu, and probably the memory.. to DDR2

Upgrade the processor on a Toshiba equium l40 series from a celron M


The core2 duo chips will be a different socket to your celeron cpu so can do that unfortunately. You may be able to upgrade to a faster cpu of the same socket type but will probably need a bios update for it to run at proper speed.

Unfortunately laptops arent really designed to be upgraded at all bar extra ram/hd/dvdrw.

Hope that helps?
