Vcore importance

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys does the voltage core determine how well the cpu performs or is it just to support the ghz for eg:

If processor A is running at 4.6ghz @ 1.3 v ( NO ERRORS 100 PERCENT STABLE )

processor B is running at 4.6ghz @ 1.4v ( NO ERRORS 100 PERCENT STABLE)

would processor B be more powerful and provide more fps due to more volts or as long as both are 100 percent stable they provide same fps ?

thanks in advanced.

No difference whatsover one would just run hotter

No i believe CPU B would just run hotter, because more voltage is used, not 100% sure tho...

The only difference will be heat.

The CPU with higher voltages will run hotter.

Purely to help the clock be stable. It litterally has 0 impact on performance assuming your clocks are stable and your heat is good. The lower, the better as long as your stable.

It would just be heat dissipation which is the difference.

Since the chip and the speed do not change it is the heat that must be changing.

To get technical, the only variation is Volts, assuming the resistance keeps a constant. When you increase volts with a constant resistance (ohms) you increase the current (amps), and amps are a direct relation to power (watts)

Becoz: Energy can not be destroyed, it can only change states.

Thanks guys .

Varying Vcore will make abslutely no difference, clockspeed=performance.
