Which FSB is better: 667 mhz or 800mhz

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am shopping for a new dell 1500 vostro laptop, and I was wondering which fsb is better when it comes to laptops: A processor that runs at 667 mhz or 800 mhz? Basically, which of these two processors is better: 2.0 ghz 4mb cache 667 mhz or 2.2 ghz 4mb cache 800 mhz. And with this note, I read the manual, and it does not say, but does it support both socket m and socket p processors? No point in buying a processor that won't even fit into the computer. Any help you can give is always appreciated.

I know that 800mhz is part of the new Santa Rosa platform.

Well for starters its pretty hard (read: impossible) to upgrade the core components of a laptop(besides memory) so even if you managed to get an upgrade from ebay or wherever chances are it won't fit, regardless of the socket, or it won't work properly.

If you're looking a brand new laptop, then I highly recommend the XPS lineup, since they have 45nm processors (just look for the 3mb and 6mb cache) which are faster and use less energy than 65nm ones.

The XPS m1330 with a 2.4GHz 45nm processor, 2GB ram, 120GB HDD, and a 8400M is $1600 CDN, and you get to feel all warm and fuzzy inside because $50 from the sale goes to help people with AIDS. This is pretty much the best laptop you could get because its lightweight and compact, should have enough power for minor gaming, and you get bragging rights for saying you have a 45nm cpu in your laptop.

I may be wrong but I get the feelin 667 and 800 refers to the speed of the memory?

800x4 would be an fsb of 3200.
