i want to buy a desktop computer from dell but in dilemma which one to choose either dell inspiron with intel core 2 quad (2.33 mhz) or dell studio intel core 2 duo (2.66 mhz). i'm gonna use it for my research whereby i'm doing a project for my computer science project in bioinformatics area. which of this pc most suitable for me?
welshmousepk, yeahhh..u are right..i'll be doing more on calculations and timing is very crucial for my works....thanks for your help on this...i just made up my mind and it seems that dell inspiron with intel core 2 quad will be the right one..
quad core usually having higher latency and weaker IPC(instruction per cycle ) than a native dual core. if you are only doing huge data transfer and some text work i'd recommand dual core would be fine. but if it's involve multi tasking, graphic coculation and animation/ multimedia data, music format then quad quad will be your favor.
