935 D vs E6300

I have a decision to make. I have a motherboard that will take either CPU. Unfortunately, I cannot OC the motherboard so I have the make a decision.

Which of the two CPUs would be better?

A Pentium D 935 at 3.2ghz with a FSB of 800 or an E6300 at 2.8ghz with a FSB of 1066?

The Pentium D came with the motherboard and I had planned to upgrade with the E6300. I don't see a difference, and need to make a decision soon.

Thank you in advance.

the Pentium E6300 is a far superior CPU compared to the Pentium D

E6300

By far.

make sure your motherboard supports the 45nm E6300 and not the old 65nm one. the 65nm version runs at 2.13 GHz if I remember correctly.

I'm not sure. The E6300 is installed now and I don't have any problems. Its just not a fast as I thought it would be. The Pentium D on paper looks like it should be faster. 3.2 mhz, 4mb of l2 cache, ...That's why I was asking.

If the D2C was close or not much faster, I was going to return it and put the old processor back in.

Use CPU-Z and check if you have the 2.13Ghz one that paranoidimage was talking about.

It looks better on paper, but the core 2 duos have a new architecture. The E6300 should be almost twice as fast as the 935, use less power, and run cooler.

CPU-Z says 2.8Ghz and 45nm for the CPU.

I guess I need to do some more testing.

Thank you for all the replies so far and any more are appreciated. I've been out for quite awhile and trying to get back into PC's again.

The 65nm E6300 is a Conroe Core2Duo that runs at 1.86Ghz... have it myself :D  Low stock clock speeds but great for OCing.

@OP
Core2Duo > Pentium Dual Core > Pentium D
E6300 P-Dual Core > E6300 Core2 (lower clock speeds) > Pentium D

Yeah the Core 2 architechure is better than that of the 935's. Also the 45nm E6300 will definiitely run cooler than the 90nm PD.

Agreed! +1 for 45nm E6300 @2.8GHz
