C2D e4300 VS AMD X2 4400+ which performs better?

More about : c2d e4300 amd 4400

They perform similarly at stock speeds (though I'd lean towards the 4400+), but the E4300 overclocks much higher.

actually i think the 4300 is ever so slightly faster because of it architecture,

but mainly coz of it massive OC capability, it the new PD 805, it cheapest out their but over clocks like a B45turd

the X2 4400+ is marginally faster(2-3%), but the E4300 runs cooler and is much more overclockable. I would go after E4300

It's actually the other way around, going by Xbitlabs benchmarks anyway.

Either way they are neck and neck at stock speeds, like you said its the o/cing of the E4300 that sets it apart.

Check out the Futuremark ORB Project for the best comparison of CPU's, clock speeds and graphic subsystems.

Everything else is just hype . . . lol

I'm biased, but go for the e4300. Should hit 2.7ghz no sweat on stock voltage. Well over 3ghz if you're willing to play with voltage.

The 4300 is the easy choice, thats what I would go with!

Best,

They are within a few percentage points of each other(depending on app/benchmark). It's easier to get low-cost mobo's for the AMD(low-priced Intel boards are available too), but high-end boards are similarly priced for both systems. DDR2-800(@ 4-4-4-12 ) is best for the 4400+, whereas DDR2-533 or 667(C2D performance is not so memory dependant) is more than enough for the E4300(depends if O/Cing, and by how much). As already stated, if overclocking, the E4300 is the most sensible choice, as all C2D's can attain 3GHz or more clock-speed with proper components. If you have a brand preference, then pick your favorite...either chip is pretty fast. GL :)

What ever happend to the old fashion.... flip the coin? (heads, intel... tails, amd)

:oops:  . o O (never mind.)

i think e4300 hase much bether Oc performs. :wink:
