X2 or not? Tags: CPUs Computer AMD Dual Core Last response: August 16, 2006 10:17 PM in CPUs Share Mackaan August 16, 2006 9:29:34 PM been thinking of upgrading my computer. though I havent decided wether i'm gonna buy an AMD 64 X2(dual core) or the AMD 64 Non X2, without the dual core. How much perfomance difference can I expect between those 2 CPU's if both are like 4200+? I'll be very happy for anwsers More about : question PCKid777 August 16, 2006 10:14:58 PM First off, check the CPU charts here. If you do multitasking, I reccomend the X2. Then again, this is coming from a person who still uses a single core CPU and hates waiting... :wink: ikjadoon August 16, 2006 10:15:38 PM Won't help loads in todays games, much in tommorows. Do you multi-task, even slightly? Get a dual-core, it will help loads. With X2's so cheap, there are few reasons not to get them. Will future-proof you plenty! ~Ibrahim~ Can't find your answer ?
