Pentium d to New Pentium Dual Core

What kind of performance increase would i see if i went from a Pentium D 2.4ghz to a New Pentium Dual Core Intel Pentium Dual-Core E6500? p35 Gigabyte

More about pentium pentium dual core
  1. take a look at this link:
    http://www.behardware.com/articles/778-2/giant-roundup-168-intel-and-amd-processors.html
    You just need to know which Pent D number it is (8xx,9xx)
    Since I have a Pentium D 945 3.4ghz and am looking to upgrade I have been researching it.
    It is important to know your chipset since that will determine which processors you can put in.
    I like Everest Home Edition by Lavalys (freeware-google it)
    It tells you everything about your system.
    I have been looking at the E6700 and also Q6600 since some of the Pentium D LGA775 motherboards support quad cores.
    It definitley will be a nice increase going to the E6500
    You should definitley notice a difference.
    Good Luck
  2. ill give link on newegg to the motherboard my bro in law has! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128059

    im trying to improve his basic gaming needs as much as i can for lowest i hope this pentium dual core will improve it alot.
  3. It has a P35 chipset so you can run anything in it. Duals, quads, 65 or 45nm CPUs as well. Its up to the budget for what you want in there.

    it would be 4~5 times, consider a e5300 is about 3x of 965 extreme performance.
  5. At least that. You cannot just go by clock speeds when comparing any P4 to the now "obsolete" Core2 CPU's. The difference that the improved microarchitecture makes is startling.
  6. The pentium D 945 is also a dual core:

    But I am confused because you listed 2.4GHz but the model number you gave is a 3.4GHz part


    Anyway, here is a comparison of something similar to what you have now vs close to what you are considering:

    The Pentium Dual cores were core architecture. They were not part of the core 2 brand.
