Hello,
which is best or better: dual core 2.8ghz vs quad core 2.4ghz??

The quad core.

More details please :) 

There are various criteria to determine such as architecture , ( laptop/PC ) etc to name a few ..

quad core is best n better. haha! do not compare quad with dual.

Quad-core is much better even if it has only 2.0ghz.

ROFL !!! That was funny dude ..

IMHO , The architecture/platform plays the most important role . This is just to point out that quad core ain't better than dual core in every single case

Core2Quad Q8200 @ 2.33 GHz - This is the processor that i own , a quad core ( LGA775 socket - dead end )

Core i3 2100 @ 3.1 GHz - A dual core from the sandy bridge series ( LGA 1155 socket )


And here s the benchmark : http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/52?vs=289

You can see it for yourself , yep the dual core beats the crap out of the quad :( 

Then again when we compare a dual core and quad core from the same generation eg: Sandy Bridge series , a quad core would win in almost every scenario , then comes the clock speeds .

Core i3 2100 @ 3.1 GHz - A dual core from the sandy bridge series ( LGA 1155 socket )

Intel Core i5 2400 @ 3.1GHz - A mid level quad core from the Sandy Bridge series ( LGA 1155 socket )

Clock speeds don't mean shite if the CPU s are generations apart .

Hope this helps :D

huh! yes, everyone knew that sandy bridge are powerful now. And he doesn't mention model i mean normal dual core like athlon ll or core 2 duo and normal quad core like phenom ll and core 2 quad so here's quad core wins if it's dual core in sandy bridge then yes dual core can beat normal qaud core but not all.
I think you got it.
