pentium dual core and core 2 duo

whats the difference? e5300 and e7200
been running the e5300 @ 4Ghz. picked up a e7200 cause it has higher fsb and 1M more L2 cache. I figured I might be able to take it higher, but the 341 fsb wall I hit wasn't my cpu's it was my boards frown.gif
with the multi on the 7200 being lower (9.5) the highest I could take it was 3.2GHz. . . . but starting windows it seemed to load so much faster. ran the benchmarks in AIDA64 and it beat the 4GHz 5300 in a few and the rest it wasn't too far behind. I got to looking around and noticed one was a c2d and the other was a Pentium dual core. they're both wolfdale 45nm. so whats the difference? is the 1MB cache make that much of a difference. looking at the MSRP the c2d cost about 60 more, so........

Nope, it's the architecture.  The Core2 architecture is more efficient and so it can process data faster (or, you can say that it can do it with less effort).

The Thing with Pendium Dual Cores Vs Core 2 Duo's like 2Cables said , the Architecture on the C2D better and allows it to perform better at a lower clock rate, Pentium Dual Cores were notorius for being able to clock very high , but not really Utilizing it as much as a similair Clocked C2D could. I.E in this Case More GHZ Doesnt mean better. Core 2 Duos just outpeform Pentium D's at the end of the day. But at this point in time it wouldnt be worth getting a C2D , i Mean if your absolutetly cant spend any more money it will be an  upgrade but you could always put money and pick up a Cheat i3 Setup.

I already have both cpus. I picked up the 7200 for $30. gonna put the 5300 in a pc for my son, but when I seen I couldn't go over 341 cause the board I decided to let him have the 7200. sadly his pc wouldn't POST frown.gif the board has been sitting on my desk for about 2 months and I bet it got scratched somewhere, i'm also kinda wondering if maybe it won't post because of the 7200. its a gateway sx2802-07, wonder if the 1066fsb has it confused... so I've got a little bit to decide which cpu I want....I may just keep the 7200.

Well, yes and no.  It's just the Core2 architecture; it's more efficient than Pentium, and this means it can process data faster and with less effort than the Pentium architecture.  So, it's faster clock-for-clock.  It's built better.  The way it processes data is superior.

It's probably not compatible with Core2 CPUs.

ya, I just assumed that it would work. my friend has the same gateway and his came with a c2d e8400, you can even get it w/ a c2q. I guess the board probably diff too. . . . . or maybe its diff bios. huh.

I think I was wrong because I checked the specifications and it looks like it should easily support it:

well since I probably gonna keep the c2d is there anyway to get my board to a higher fsb? if I set it to a higher fsb than 341 when it restarts after saving bios, it starts with all my settings back to auto. there is another bios available... I have f5a and on the gigabyte site its says there is f5f beta. I've been so close a few times to flashing the bios. I would just hate to do it then it not work. and be stuck computerless.
