What is deffrence between core i3, and core i5


There's two main differences between them that i can think off the top of my head.
1) The speed at which the processor works (where i5 works faster than i3)2) The number of cores it has.
Cores are like little computers inside the computer itself. The i3 has 2, while the i5 usually has 4. usually the more cores a computer has the better it is at doing background processes.

Installed pentium d 940 duel core. Will not boot. need solution


Assuming the new processor is compatible with your MB there are several things to check. Do you have jumpers on your MB to identify different processors? Can you get to the BIOS with the new chip installed. There are several settings in there that could affect your boot process. Lastly, is your BIOS compatible with the new processor?

I have Intel Celeron-M 585 2.0-GHz processor in a HP G61-300 and I need something better/faster can you help me?


There are plenty of core 2 duo processors that will work with that board but to minimize the heat issue I wouldn't go any higher than a Pentium Duel Core T4500. You can pick one up off of Ebay for under $40US.

1. 1st you have to know if the current mother board will accept the Duo core processor.
2. the i5 processor is newer technology and may have advantages over the Duo core processor such as speed and computational integrity i.e. being able to do more calculations per second also bandwidth . not be able to crash as much due to the amount of programs running.

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!

E8400 or Q6600


personally i have the q6600 which is a quad core processor, all the others you listed were dual core, personally i use alot of programs all at once which is good if you have a quad core, but just for general music, data, and streaming, the e8400 is probably better for you, its a 3ghz processor.

Which is a better processor?


The AMD Phenom x4 is actually cheaper with 4 cpu cores compaired to Core 2 duo which has 2 cpu cores, you will get a better deal for less money on a AMD x4.

Heres a chart you can look at
http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/desktop-cpu-charts-q3-2008/3DMark-Vantage-CPU,817.html

I just got myself the AMD Phenom 9650 for 150usd
The core 2 duo e6600, which I would recommend from the core duo series costs around 200 usd.

Note that the Duo only has 2 cpu cores. You get double the power on a phenom 4x with 4 cpu cores
So the phenom is definitely the best choise! (double the power for 50usd less)

Anything else?

E2180 Vs Athlon 64 X2 5000+


depends on what you plan to do with the cpu amd are good but a 3200 may only run @ 1.8 to 3.2 ghz depending while a intel 3200 will run 3.2 ghz.
I believe intel are more stable & run cooler than AMD but AMD benchmarks on Games better but run hotter (so get a good cooling fan & heatsink both pentium / celeron d & intel dou / dual core / core 2 dou and amd x2 have 2 cores (but watch your front side bus and cache the higher the better but the more $ also) then You need a good stable mobo that supports the chip you get (I preffer asus & msi for Gamers and biostar / msi for home users)

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.
