I am trying to better understand cpu basics and have a question. What is the difference performance wise between an Intel Pentium 4 Processor 2.8 GHz, and an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 1.8 GHZ?

Many Thanks! :sarcastic:

  1. Best answer
    A P4 2.8 has one core running at 2.8Ghz and a core duo has two cores both running at 1.8Ghz,
    is the basic answer
  2. Thanks so much for responding. If I'm understanding correctly, as far as speed and performance, because the duo core has two cores running at 1.8Ghz, it will be significantly faster?
  3. yes, it will be a better choice out of the two,
    plus you can always overclock it if you felt the need
  4. Thanks. I'll look for overlocking tutorials if the need arises.
