Can someone learn me about socket 775?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So I've been contemplating stepping up my video cards, but when I look at the prices I think to myself I can put together an intel rig, just to see what all the hubbub is about.

But when I go to newegg I notice there a lot of different socket 775 CPU, theres all these
Celeron
Celeron D
Celeron DC
Core 2 Duo
Core 2 Extreme
Core 2 Quad
Dual-Core
Pentium Dual-Core

Whats the difference between all these?

The main difference is their core architecture and the amount of cache that each generation of cores has.

Celeron D
Celeron
are single cores similar to pentium 4s
Celeron DC
Core 2 Duo
Core 2 Extreme
Core 2 Quad
Dual-Core
Pentium Dual-Core
are dual core and quad cores
all of these will work on a mobo that can support quad intel cpu
difference is speed architecture and cache
edit: and power consumption

Different architectures, which means different performance. I'll try and sum it up quickly:

Celeron - Intel's budget line
Celeron D - budget, based off of Pentium 4 architecture
Celeron DC - budget dual core Celeron, based off of Core 2 architecture
Core 2 Duo - mainstream dual-core
Core 2 Extreme - like other Core 2s, but have an unlocked multi for higher OCing
Core 2 Quad - mainstream quad-core
Dual-Core - not really a Intel proc series, just a description
Pentium Dual-Core - based off C2D, great value and OCers

For most people, a Pentium Dual Core, C2D, or C2Q will perform well and have the best value.

So other than the C2Extreme which are probably the most expensive, which are the best OCers? I see people clocking the Q6600 all the way up to 4.0, and the E series CPU are which of that line up ?

The main difference between the is the nimber of cores, the amount of L2 cache, the multipliers (unlocked in the extreme CPUs) and the rated speed.

You also have to consider the manufacture process as they come as 65nm (older) and now 45nm.
  • The Celeron is the absolute budget CPU.
  • The Celeron D (shouldn't be included in your list) is based off the older P4 architecture.
  • The Celeron DC is based on the Allendale Conroe core which has 2Mb L2 cache, but has been cut doen to 512Kb.
  • Core 2 Duo is the mainstream Conroe core which comes in many forms, both Conroe (65nm) Core and Wolfdale (45nm), and also as an Allendale core. Again, the Allendale has 2Mb L2 while Conroe has 4Mb, but some lower models have some of that L2 disabled.
  • The Core 2 Extreme is just a Conroe with an unlocked multiplier
  • The Core 2 Quad is a pair of dual core cored interconnected. The are available in Conroe (65nm) and Yorkfield (45nm)
  • The Dual-Core refers to the first generation mobile conroe in which each core had it's own 2Mb L2 cache instead of sharing a single 4Mb L2 cahce.
  • The Pentium Dual-Core is between the Celeron and the Allendale conroe. They are just Conroe/Wolfdale cores with 1Mb or less L2 cahce.

But note that the Extremes are not the best OCers. With motherboards pushing higher FSNB, the multiplier is becoming less important. But note that the higher end CPUs are higher binned (meaning they are selected for faster speeds becasue the meet strickter voltage and speed requirements).

If you want the best price/performance Wolfdale, get the E8500 E0 revision core.

If you want the best price/performance quad core, get the Q9550 Yorkfield E0 core.

If you want the best budget/performance quad core, get the Q6600 Kentsfield.

they will all differ with results. it would be hard to say which are better OC'ers. I am happy with my Q6600 but some prefer the e8400/8600.

E series are dual cores, Q series are quad cores. The best E series OCer are the E8x00s.

Hmmm...... good know thanx guys. I was thinkin of getting this mobo for a build, and seeing as DDR2 is getting rediculously cheap, it wouldnt be all that much monies to put together a decent rig. I was just wondering which is the best CPU bang for the buck. So it seems as though the best quad is the Q6600 and the best dual cores are the E8xxx series.

I've also heard good things about the Q9650/9550/9450, but they're a fair amount more expensive than the Q6600.
