3800 x2 vs 3400 sempy

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
how much of a differce would be noticed from the jump to a 3800?
and how far do they generally overclock? (note: this is not a brisbane, but a Toledo core)

what socket is your sempy?? The reason i ask is, I just built myself a new rig and i went from a Socket754 Sempron 3300+ @2.3ghz to an X2 3800+ socket940. Tbh, I found my old sempy rig loaded up Windows much quicker, but the dual core will shut down in seconds, where the sempy took a while and even sometimes it would just hang on the shutdown screen.
Also multi-tasking is a lot better with the dual-core compared to the old rig and thats about all the difference i've seen.

I've not messed with the settings yet, so it's still at stock, but it's also staying at stock until i get myself some decent cooling

You would notice a difference in benchmarks and multitasking but probably not much else.
