More about dual core 8ghz quad core 4ghz
  1. The quad core.
  2. More details please :)

    There are various criteria to determine such as architecture , ( laptop/PC ) etc to name a few ..
  3. 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

  5. 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.

  7. How do you compare Core 2 quad to Sandy bridge CPUs?? You cant compare them. Any modern day games benefits from a Quad Core CPUs
