More about what fast core 2duo
  1. It's quite obvious that the latest version will be always faster then the older one, the only thing is that you have to decided which one you want to go with.

  2. i3 is Intel's latest version of dual core desktop processors. They employ 32 nm size, an integrated graphics core, & hyper threading. Includes i3 530 & i3-540.
    The Core 2 Duo was Intel's older twin core processors, usually with 65 nm size, no on-chip graphics or HT.

    Both are fast; the i3s more so than the C2Ds
  3. I have an i3 530 and it is faster than any core2 duo I have used, overclocks like crazy, runs cooler, and is much cheaper. Some of the core2 quads are faster, but they are double the price and then you might as well buy an i5 750 for $199 which beats the crap out of any core2 or i3. Is this for an upgrade or new build? The core2 series uses the old LGA775 socket, while the i3 530&540, and the i5 750 use the newer LGA1156 socket.
  4. I got my 530 i3 for $100 after rebate with biostar board at frys. This little dynamo can run past 4.0 with a better heatsink. Fastest overclocker I've ever had.
  5. I found quad core CPU the fastest one in computer tech world . It is advertised with speed of 2.4 or 2.66GHZ. An old P4 chip can get 3.0GHz. Is there anything faster than 3.0GHZ?
