core2duo is faster.
piii has only one core and low clockspeed of 1.8 ghz while the core2duo has 2 cores with 2.3 ghz on each core. the c2d has improved cpu architecture compared to piii.
hopefully this answers your homework question.
Ok, thanks, this was the first time I used Tom's Q&A. Probably should have phrased my
question better. I have two computers, desktop with Core 2, and laptop with PIII. What
I'm really trying to do is install Call of Duty MW3. A computer repair guy claimed my
laptop was faster. I didn't think so since the Core2 is on the desktop. Anyway, the
damn game won't install on either. Won't download the files. Thanks to all who
replied except the smartass Truegenius.
