vista and 6600

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i like the 6600. but it seems that the only performance gains i see are when i do video editing and encoding. i am running vista RTM ultimate 32-bit edition. when i do virus and spyware scans it takes just as long as my P4 3.4. it seems vista is slowing things down. i am not sure what is really going on but most of the apps i use i am not seeing any difference from my pentium 4. is it just than one core is being used for most of these apps.

Most applications use a Single Core based instruction set, to use only a singular processing unit.

The tasks you have specified, Virus Scanning and Spyware Scanning, are not extremely influenced by the Central Processing Unit. The Hard Drive (HDD) is the key component here, for these two applications.

The Core 2 Duo will vastly accelerate your in game performance however
