Agreed. D 925 is old and isn't a true dual core cpu. Intel physically added another core rather than manufacturing it with 2 cores on the same chip..

Well... It has two cores, so it is "technically" a dual core...
But its not a dual core in the sense of modern processors were Dual Core = 2 cores on a single die.

The Pentium D's were a total failure. E5300 hands down.

Yeah you're correct I was just trying to give a super simple explanation really quickly because it sounds like OP is in quite a hurry

I have a Pentium D 925. DON'T GO FOR IT. Although you can kick the clock wayy up, the bus, and just function of the CPU just sucks.

It's like 2 Pentium 4 HT's smashed together on the same chip. (not die, CHIP)
