:? If your MB supported both the CPU's in question, which one would you buy? Price difference approx $45.

The 930D is dual core but the 630 with hyperthreading activated might be of simmilar performance.

Does the 930D have the option of Hyperthreading also.

Thanks,

The 930 doesn't support HT. I would get the 930D if I had to decide between the two. However, with the release of Conroe, I'd go with the Core 2 Duo 6300 or 6400 instead of either of them. The Pentium Ds really don't make sense to buy unless you're trying to stick with a motherboard that doesn't support Conroe.

Definetely the 930D. The 930D is manufactured on the 65nm process, therefore less heat and should overclock better. The 630 is 90nm.

I Dont know much about D930 , But 630 is 64bit,with 2mb cache,and HT support & can easily OC to 3.8GHz ~ 4GHz...
is D930 have 2 mb cache ?
If a Motherboard doesnt support Core Duo , & some one have a good Cooling system , i recommanded 630 !

It's got 4 MB of cache (2 processors x 2 MB of cache). It's a no brainer; get the 930d. However, if your motherboard also supports Core 2 Duo, it's a no brainer for the Core 2 Duo.

You're a complete idiot. Why do you ask the question in the first place if that's the way you're gonna reply to people when they try to help. Your parents should monitor your internet useage more closely.

the EXTREME editions do have hyperthreading enabled
July 30, 2006 8:45:49 PM

Which is quite nice to have 4 threadability verses simply two from a dual core chip...

Exactly

HT - 2 Virtual Cores
Dual Core - 2 Physical Cores
Extreme Edition (955/965) - 2 Physical cores with Virtual Core enabled

There were few advantages to having the (4) cores though in most reviews i've seen on the 840EE,955EE and 965EE.

Why would a dual core CPU support Hyper-Threading? :lol: 

Anyway, I would go for the 930, since it is a dual core, and uses less power, and it's 65nm.


yeah..some one up there was like, "the 930 does have HT, so get the 630"


get the 930. it has 2 cores vs the 630's 1. 2 is better than 1
