considering you have more cache for the pentium and HT yes it would make a massive difference because the cpu wont have to search for the data in the hdd time and again.
And is that cpu of pentium 4 512kb cache a socket 478?
Yes it is a Socket 478 Pentium 4 512KB, with 800FSB at 3.0GHz(HT Technology so 2 threads) processor. Its damaged though, couple broken pins and couple bent ones here and there. How it happened? I was a noob when i was 12 or 13 with computers and i went to look inside my computer and tried learning by myself(which i did accomplish on the hardware for the most part) and i took off the processor and messed with it and just looked at it n stuff.. then glued it on the heatsink with ADHESIVE LOL.. Some stuff that bonds metals ceramics(kinda like super glue but gooey).. 60°C..
**Last question.. Is CPU cache shared by cores or threads? Thanks..
