Pentium 4 Hands Down. Have had them Both and Still have the 4. Celeron is WAY slow.

Is there a cpu upgrade for an hp pavilion 6835 with a motherboard 115561 cognac 20000731


The fastest Pentium 3 that will work in your board is a Intel Pentium III 1GHz chip. Here is a link to the specs:
http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium-III/Intel-Pentium%20III%201000%20-%20RB80526PY001256%20%28BX80526F1000256%29.html

You could also get a Intel Celeron 1.1 GHz but it only has half the level 2 cache size so it's actually a bit slower than the Pentium III 1GHz chip.

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.

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 between celleron and pentium which is better to use


Celeron has always been known as the cheap mans 'chip' because it is less expensive. Celeron tends to overheat quicker and doesn't cope as well with high demand. In saying that a Celeron does it's job - just don't expect miracles. Pentium is the quality 'chip'. Works well on high demand computers, faster at responding and less likely to have problems.

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.

The pc run slow though I optumize the hardrive and checked for viruses.


No. The pentium 2 is too slow to run Windows XP and be very useful. It will run XP, but it won't be an enjoyable experience.

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)
