My Intel Celeron Dual Core E3400 Processor is running at 1200mhz, instead of 2600mhz. I tried altering all the available Bios options, but to no avail. Even more, my Windows XP x86 Professional recognizes...


Click Start
Click Control Panel

Change the power-setting from "portable" (implying long battery life) to "desktop" (implying full speed processing, but shorter battery life).

I would like to upgrade this processor, what do Intel 2140


I would recommend upgrading to something with quad-cores and something that will fit into the LGA775 socket.

You can go with a Core i7 but that would require you to upgrade your mobo and your RAM. Costing you about 400 more dollars.

So I would recommend a Core 2 Quad Q8300 from intel.

You can only mix the same family processors with different stepping and speed. Pentium D is not in the same family as a Xeon. So no, you can not. For as long as the processors are in the same family, you can mix dual core with quad core and even different speed.

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.

UpGrade


you could only upgrade the processor and RAM in this condition i.e.

you can only change your an upgraded p-III processor like 1.0 GHz, 1.1 GHz or 1.3GHz and
upgrade the RAM by changing to 256 in each slot.

that is all what u can do with ur pc
