A dual-core processor is much faster than a single-core processor since it is two processors mounted on the same die. Each of the two processors are the exact same, one mounted on the top, and the other mounted on the bottom of the die. Since there are two processors, there is the ability to perform twice as many computations in any given amount of time, making it quite clear why dual-core proceesors are faster than single-core processors. With two processors sharing the workload, the upload and download times are much faster, and three dimensional manipulation becomes more accessible without over-clocking the CPU and freezing your computer. Dual-core processors will make the graphics of your high definition LCD monitor a lot clearer and crisper, and the flow of multi-person role playing games a lot more fluid.

SOURCE: Upgrade from pentium 915 D to dual core

The pentium d 915 is a dual core processor, albeit a bad one. You should check google for info on your motherboard to see if it supports Core 2 duo's/ Core 2 quads. I have an E6600 overclocked to 3.0ghz and it still plays games perfectly paired with my 8800gt 512mb and 4gb's ram. I definately recommend upgrading to a core 2 duo. I used to have a pentium d 915 and it was bad for gaming and the e6600 blows it out of the water. You most likely wont find the e6600 anywhere as it is nearly 3 years old. Look at sites such as toms hardware to find a good core 2 duo.

Good luck- an t-adh leat!

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 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.

I have been given a acer aspire L320 BUT THERE IS NOT A PROCESSOR IN IT. what i want to know is what processor fits.it


The Acer Aspire L320 can take 3 different processors

1. Intel Core 2 Duo

Dual Core chip with speeds from 1.8Ghz to 3.3 Ghz

2. Intel Celeron D

Dual Core chip with speeds from 1.6Ghz to 2.7Ghz

3. Intel Pentium 4

Single core chip with speeds from 1.3Ghz to 3.8Ghz

The Core 2 Duo 3.3 Ghz is the most expensive and Pentium 4 1.3 Ghz the cheapest.

Some more information is available on the Intel website, links are below:

Can I upgrade to a Intel Pentium D 945 3.40ghz processor. Intel (Augsburg) 915G Motherboard


No, the Intel (Ausberg) 915G motherboard will not support dual core processors.

The Intel (Ausberg) 915G motherboard uses an Intel 915G motherboard chipset,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Intel2/102007/102007sp33.shtml


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_Chipsets

Supports only Single Core processors.

It isn't until the Intel 945G motherboard chipset, that Dual Core processors are supported.

[NOTE*
The Intel Celeron D is a Single Core processor.
The Intel Pentium D is a Dual Core processor,

Intel Celeron D,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celeron_D#Celeron_D

"The Intel Celeron D processor works with the Intel 845 and 865 chipset families. The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core. It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M (which also uses 3xx model numbers). Unlike the Pentium D, the Celeron D is not a dual core processor."


Intel Pentium D,

Don't 'shoot the messenger'. I just state the facts.

What is the main difference between dual core and core 2 duo? processor


1. Dual core is the generic name given to processors that have 2 cores on the same chip 2. Core 2 Duo is the second line of dual core processors from Intel 3. Other dual core processors aside from Core 2 Duo are the Core Duo from Intel and the X2 series from AMD 4. All Core 2 Duo processors are dual core but not all dual core processors are Core 2 Duo

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

Intel cpu comparable to "Dual Core AMD Opteron 1212HE"


This is an AMD 2nd generation Opteron CPU, running at 2GHz. It is a single core device. So a comparison would be against Intel business CPU - the Xeon, again compare against a single core.

Hilw,, what is the difference between atom and intel core duo processor??


The Atom is a low power single core processor, it is roughly same speed and similar microinstruction set as a pentium 4 single core, and uses far less power and produces less heath than a regular pentium 4.

The intel core duo is a dual core processor that uses 64-bit core duo (dual cpu inside) processor.

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.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.
