Thread Starter 
Hello,
There Everyone..

Which CPU is the Best

Intel Pentium Dual Core E5700 3ghz 2MB or Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 2.53 Ghz ???

so, Intel Pentium Dual Core E5700 3ghz 2MB VS Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 2.53 Ghz

Intel's site has a great "compare" feature... just browse to the CPU you want to look at and press "add to compare" then once you have a few CPU's picked out just hit "compare"

I took the work out of it for you this time.. just click here... http://ark.intel.com/compare/35348,42801

But in my opinion that one is too close to call.. The core 2 duo has better cache and bus speed but the higher clock speed of the pentium might be more appealing to some... like I said thats a close call.

Edit: Go with the pentium over the C2D. Its over 2 years newer according to launch date.

If they are both around the same price then get the E7200, if the e5200 is cheaper I would get that. The only advantage that the e7200 has (besides the l2 cache 2m vs 3mb) is the e7200 has virtualization I believe. But both chips perfrom very similar. I made the same thread a few years ago when the e7200 just got released to replace my then e4400. Basically the only advantage was higher overclocks and would run cooler (45nm vs 65nm).

I think it just comes down to price.

I'd get the pentium and OC it, but that C2D is also nice..

So hard to make a decision... but i would get the pentium.

Although not the exact same there are a couple of comparisons that can be made using anandtech's bench database

here is the e7200 vs the e6300 (very similar to the e5700 slightly lower clock speed but the same fsb as the e7200)

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/94?vs=62

here is the e7200 vs the e5200 (same as the e5700 but runnning at 2.6ghz instead of 3.0ghz)

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/98?vs=62

I really can't tell much of a difference and I doubt in the real world you would be able to tell the difference either. Get which ever one is cheaper imho.

Only real benefit of the E7200 would be cache and FSB. Neither of which you'll notice the benefit of since the 5200 is 500MHz faster.

Hardly, the E7200 is the slower of the two.

OP, do you plan to overclock? What's the cost of each CPU's?

Keeping in mind that the E5700 has the higher CPU multiplier, so you can hit overclocks without needing very high system bus speeds vs. the E7200. That will affect the quality (cost) of the motherboard you might need.

Why would you get the Pentium?

Despite the E7220 having a lower stock speed, it has 1mb of extra cache (2mb vs 3mb).

OP, get the Core 2 Duo. The extra cache is worth the lower clock speed, and you can OC it at least 3.5ghz. However, keep in mind that you need a slightly capable motherboard to OC the E7200, due to the lower multi, so you need a mobo that can push the FSB.

What does 1mb more cache at slower speed get you that 2mb of cache can't handle in any application? Any amount of advantage that the extra 1mb of cache yields is nullified by the significantly improved performance from the higher clock speed. The architecture has the same calculations per clock cycle. It makes no sense to get the slower of the two.
