I want a fast processor so I have a choice between a quad core Q9000 running at 2GHz and a dual core T9900 3.06GHz, both have same fsb freqency and cetch size,,,what cpu whould be fastest?? Please help
No, you don't just add the core frequencies. The correct answer in this case is that the dual will be faster in some cases, and the quad will be faster in others. The quad will win in any highly threaded workload, such as rendering, encoding, and many types of simulations. The dual will win on most more normal desktop tasks however, including gaming.
I asked cuz I own a HP HDX18 notbook with a Q9000 CPU and I want to upgrade to the T9900 CPU and yeah I am a vivd gamer so this info was important,by the way I run crysis at high settings with the Q9000 cpu and not a prob
True but a faster CPU could make a diffence in a case that a greater graphically enhanced game emerges so my notebook deserves the $450 CPU upgrade,iv just upgraded my HD's to high speed SSD's and I see quicker load time,longer batt life and overall better proformace,they cost me $600 each and I must say I get my $1200 back every time I use my notebook
What GPU do you have though? That's likely to make more of a difference than the CPU is. As for the SSDs, why $1200? You can get a good SSD for $200 these days, so $1200 seems really high for a consumer laptop.
True but my my hp notebook has 2x 250GB SSD's with read400 and write300. If you want SSD's with these specs you will have to pay a high price. The HP HDX18 is the only rival to ALIENWARE'S highend notbooks so I had to put in the best hardware
130M? Ouch. Your CPU won't be bottlenecking that much at all. That's actually a fairly mediocre card for what otherwise sounds to be a near top end notebook. I doubt you would see any gaming improvement whatsoever with the CPU swap, since the graphics card is what will be limiting your performance anyways.
Not likely. Honestly, with the amount of cash you've spent/are planning on spending, you'd probably be better off with a mid spec laptop (maybe $1000 or so) plus a gaming desktop. The desktop will be far more upgradable than any laptop on the market, and the performance will be far higher for the price as well.
