Core 2 Duo E6300 1.8GHz vs Pentium E5200 2.5GHz?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
This vs this.

They are both the same price, and will be used in an mITX PC for light gaming, browsing, and LAN'ing. The only difference i can see is FSB, and the Pentium doesn't have "Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)". It'd be under stock cooling, with no overclock whatsoever.

What one shall I go for? smile.gif

The E5200 is better in every single way. Faster, uses less power, newer instruction sets. No contest.

While it's true the C2D has a higher FSB, that isn't quite needed for such a low end CPU. The e5200 has all the advantages: higher performance, lower power consumption, newer technology. Even if you don't have VT-X (which probably you won't need anyway) it only means you'd have decreased performance in VMWare and other virulalisation software.

My pick: e5200 by a mile.

E5200 is a proven OC'er.

Oh, really? I was under the assumption the Core 2 Duo was the better choice. tongue.gif

Thanks. smile.gif

Benchmarks don't always translate into real world performance increases.

Thanks, good explanation, too. Much appreciated. cheers.gif

...it's just marketing. The reason why C2D is usually better is because they have higher FSB and larger cache - but this is only if you compare CPUs from the same generation. The 6300 is one generation older (1st gen C2D 65nm) while e5200 is a newer 45nm core (SSE4.x, lower power consumption).

/offtopic: I've seen some saying e5200 is a proven OCer - it's not. Some of them are, but low end e5x00 are worse OCers than the rest of the 45nm crew. I "only" managed 3.5GHz @1.35V on a E0 e5200, which is an average result for this CPU. The rest of the 45 Wolfdale pack reach quite close to 4GHz.

E5xxx series are better in everyway...
Also i was under the impression that the new E5xxx series do have VT-x!!!??
