I was just wondering if anyone could tell me how much faster a 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo is than a 1.8 GHz Turion 64 X2?
I'm buying a laptop and need to know if $250 more is justifiable for the Core 2 Duo.
You must be talking about CoreDuo? They aren't quite as fast as the Core2Duo processors(667FSB vs. 1066). I would say the 2 would be very close in performance, and the $250 difference isn't likely worth it. GL
Intel Core 2 Duo's for lappys (merom) don't use the full 1066mhz fsb! If i remember it has the same frequencies as yonah.
Intels tend to be more power efficient and quicker, BUT also more expensive, AMD resulting in a better 'bang for the buck'
