Q: If I have a dual CPU that runs at 3.0GHz and a Quad that runs at 2.7GHz?
Which would be faster?
Whats the difference?
Q: I have an AMD Phenom II X2 550 Callisto 3.1GHz processor and an AMD – Socket AM3 – MSI 770-C45 motherboard. Is it safe to unlock the Quad core in the processor? Will it be stable enough or will it shorten the computers lifespan?Read Answer Here
Q: I am currently in the process of building a new PC for myself. I’m starting from scratch and looking for a CPU first. I plan on using this PC for the next 3 years or so with only upgrades to the graphics cards and memory (as needed in the future).
I do plan on using this machine for gaming (but nothing else that would really strain the CPU like rendering and such). Would it be better to go with a dual core or quad core? I will be spending the money on a good motherboard and graphics card but I want to know if the quad core will really prove to be worth while.
Q: I am about to rebuild my computer, which was a 3GHz socket A AMD Athlon with 2 gig of DDR RAM. The motherboard has developed a heat fault on the chipset and it is not fixable. I am looking at getting a new motherboard, processor, and RAM along with a new case with a 450w power supply. I have been looking at the AMD processors and seen that you can get a bundled deal on AMD PHENOM QUAD CORE 9500 4 x 2.3GHZ SKT AM2+ for about the same cost as an AMD ATHLON 64 X2 6400+ DUAL CORE 64 BIT SKT AM2. These both include motherboards as well. Which would be best option. The machine will only be used for small end gaming, online and video editing with pinnacle.I currently have windows vista premium home 32bit.
A: At the sub $200 price point, I’d suggest going with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 which should outperform both of those chips. Here is a good review of the AMD Quad chips vs their competitors from Tom’s Hardware. The E6750 outperforms both of those AMD chips for nearly all the benchmarks.
Otherwise, if you’re set on AMD you’ll be happy with either of those chips. Some software programs will take better advantage of the dual core setup, while others will handle the quad-core better and even then it’s going to be splitting hairs.
Q: I am building a computer and was wondering what processor would be better and Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 2.66GHz or a Quad Q6600 2.4 GHz; they are both selling for the same price. I wont be playing any games on the computer, but will be using Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 and Photoshop Elements 5.0 to edit and create DVD home movies. I will be installing Vista Home Premium on the computer.
A: A quad core processor is a good solution if you are going to use multiple programs at the same time or if you will be using multimedia software. If you were going to be using your computer for video games then you would want to go with the faster chip and you would not worry about how many cores.
Either chip will be good but if they are the same price go with the quad core. When you get Vista familiarize with the setting for multi core processors. Having a dual or quad core processor is only useful if you set it up and use it properly. Think the difference between Tim Allen on Home Improvement and MacGyver.
