Pentium D question

Hi ,

I see Pentium D Smithfield for 340 USD and
I see Pentium 4 640 Prescott for 230 USD

What is the exact difference between these processors phically and performance-wise. Will they run on the same board , or do they both require different boards...

Thank you
Ralph

  1. Where do you see it?

    Pentium D's are multi-core and the Pentium 4's are not. Performance advantages between the chips will depend on system utilization.

  2. What do you mean by system utilization,

    By the way i'm in Korea, the prices are here like i Mentioned before... ALSO , does anyone know when the Dual Core with Hyper Threading will come out ???
  3. Dual core with HT is already out its called a 840EE...
    system utilisation: heavy multitasking, the Pentium D is a wiser choice...If you mainly use one CPU intensive application at the time, th 6xx will suit you just fine and will be faster in games!

  5. I do multitask a lot with my comp ,
    When can we expect the cheaper 820 and 830 with HT ???
    How to find out ???

    thank you
    Again
  6. I wouldn't expect the lower tier Intel DC CPUs to get HT. Even with HT, the 840EE barely beats the top AMD DC.

    Not. If you set up everything for the Intel system (including 4 threads) the Intel can almost catch the Amd. Under normal loads, the EE is not even in the race.
