Pentium D VS Pentium Dual-Core? - Page 3

A Pentium D might have an extra real core to replace the Hyper-threading, but it's still going to be slow, and consume more power and put off more heat. As was said, a Pentium D is nothing more than two Prescott cores put on one chip.

A Pentium Dual-core is actually a Core 2 Duo with less cache/FSB/clock speed. Overclocking can take care of the latter two. With a decent enough board/RAM, most go to ~3GHz. My E2160 ran at 2.7GHz for well over a year, and that was on stock cooling with a cheap G31 board. It did 3GHz stable as well, but I left it at 2.7GHz.

Edit:Not all of them are Wolfdale. The E2xx0 series is Conroe-based (65nm), and the E5x00 series is Wolfdale-based (45nm).

Thats the thing, cache lol. Right now I'm looking at a E6320, or a E6420
. There alot more then what I was looking to spend. I cant believe this, No one even said "Get a core2duo" and somehow I convinced myself to get one........

I brought it up in the other thread.

Yeah, and I want to stay cheap. but I also want good results. Which is basically, a contradiction.

Well, a good Pentium Dual-core or a lower end Core 2 Duo (a E4x00 or the lower end E6xx0) are a good compromise between a Pentium 4/D, which perform too poorly, and a better Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad, which can cost a bit. They're generally good enough and cheap enough.

I cant really find a good E6 for less then 50, which is mroe then I spent on the board....

E2220 is vastly superior to any Pentium D, even the extreme editions.

3.2GHz+ is a fairly common out of the E2220. A Pentium D would have to be running well over a GHz faster to compete.

E2220 is a Core 2 Duo, just with less cache.
