Is a Q6700 better than what I have?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I came into possession of an HP desktop that has a Q6700 and 4GB of either 533 or 667mhz DDR2. Would I see any performance increases over my current tricore even though the C2Q is clocked slower?

At stock the Q6700 would be slower, but clocked at the same speed they perform about the same.

Edit:- Just seen you have a tri. In multithreaded apps you will see a little boost in performance. In gaming you would be better off with your current CPU.

I beleive the Ph2 will be faster due to it being newer and better, but the C2Q is no push over.

I believe that at same clock speed they would be very close. Not worth trying to find a good S775 mobo

Ok, thanks for the quick answers. I guess I can put it to use as a nice home server.

Here's a comparison: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/83?vs=53

Q6700 overclocks higher and should net better performance overall.
