More about what difference pentium core
  1. umm lets see, the arch is a pretty big diff for starters, what exactly do you want to know? www.google.com is your friend
  2. CPU architecture design. Core 2 Duo is more efficient processing leading to more data proceesed per MHz, better performance (more powerful), and less power hungry.
  3. C2D is (4 off the top of my mind):

    1.)Lower in TDP wattage consumption.

    2.)Depending on the model, you can have up to 4MB L2 cach that is shared between the 2 cores.

    3.)Because of it's microarchitecture, it does more per processing cycle, which out performs its predecessors (P4 family) at lower speeds.

    4.)Since its based on the 65nm size, it should be cheaper to produce.
  4. i couldnt get d diffrence .....as if the processor speed is same such as

    "Intel core 2 duo 2.4 Ghz" and "Intel pentium IV 2.4 Ghz"

    then what is the difference.....???

    i don't think only the microarchitecture does anything !!!
  5. pentium= ewww
    core 2 = yyyayyy
  6. Exactly!

    Core 2 is about 40% faster its a no brainer
