AMD Turion vs Intel Pentium processor

I have Toshiba Laptop L300. It does not install xp . however it easily install Window 7


Hi,

Probably because you have a SATA Hard Drive. If you want to install WIN XP, you may need to change your hard drive settings. For this go to the BIOS and change to Compatible Mode or IDE or Non SATA. The Reasons that WIN 7 install with no problems is because WIN 7 has already builtIn SATA drivers on it

Amd turion x2 rm 70 mobile processor


I will be glad to share my little knowledge in this senario.
Basically, I am personally a fan of AMD processors who is the first to manufacture 64 Bit Processors for Desktops and Notebooks.
However, if you remember, Intel started concentrating on Performance and not on Speed after AMD was able to design processors which were able to outperform Intel processors with slower speeds.
So, you need to look into Performance and not into Speed of the Processor.
Coming to the processor installed in your notebook, it is normal but I recommend you to use Windows XP than using Vista since Vista need more RAM and processing power when compared to XP.
Also, Windows Vista Home Basic is the basic version among the Vista family with very little features.
Coming to the Heating issue, this is common for all Notebooks to heat up when used for long time since the Notebook parts are palced in a very small where if any part heats up, it is passed to other parts too.
Make sure that the Cooling Fan Vents in the Notebook are not filled with Dust.
You can find these vents located at the rear of the notebook from where the hot air should be emiting from inside the Notebook.
I recommend you to use a Vaccume Cleaner or Air Blower to blow away invisible dust which might be blocking the airflow.
Also, make sure that the Notebook is placed on a flat surface like a Table so that there will be air flow from the bottom of the Notebook and the Cooling Fan will be able to **** in the required air from the bottom and dissapate the heat generated by the internal components.
Also, check for any BIOS Update is available for your Notebook related to this issue and update with the same.
You need to contact HP Chat Support and get the exact BIOS Update for your notebook since updating the BIOS with incorrect Update will make the Notebook useless.

Hope this gives some idea about your doubts.....

Amd turion x2 rm70 vs intel core 2 duo t5750!!!!


I read this and don't believe you - yes the AMD dual core gets hot - yes AMD processor are HOT processors - is intel better - no there on par with AMD - the thu put rate is so close it doesn't matter - now vista basic is just that BASIC - if you want to bump it up - home premium 32 or 64 but ultimate 64 should get it going.

I got an AMD turion x2 64 processor in my new notebook n after reading reviews comparison to core 2 duo i m really tensed!


You made a good choice. In the CPU arena right now, the difference between the two CPUs is a toss up. The slight advantages of one vs. the other in benchmark tests is nominal and actually artificial..

What happens with an AMD CPU is with the associated GPU onboard. And with a 64bit processor, the number of apps and games that take advantage of 64bit CPUs has always been limited but they are growing. This will only become more and more numerous.

The main architectural difference in the two was in how the two cpus communicated and the AMD was first to use a bus between the two cores and the Intel had to go to the onboard memory controller and back. That was in the first inception. Still, AMD has been far in advance of Intel and Intel has played catch up in tricks inside the cores and how the north and southbridge took advantage of the cores' architecture.

Needless to say, I'm an AMD power user and my gaming rig has an AMD dual core on an Asus/Nvidia board and an Nvidia PCIe 9800 GPU.

In the long run, all modern notebooks require you to own a pad cooler to use these in your lap or not, they all produce heat. So, just get a good one designed for your laptop so it snaps into place and will keep your rig nice and cool.

At a LAN Party you won't suffer from having a dual core AMD cpu, you'll hold your own and it will be an even playing field and the wins will go to the person with the fastest fingers... as it should be.

Sleep easy friend,
