With lowering silicon costs and rising consumer needs, manufacturers seem to be pushing one of two things: clock speed and/or core count. With the way things are going, it doesn't seem that clock ...
I am talking about this: What should I set in minimum and maximum? I want good CPU performance but not overheated CPU and fan working like crazy.
Is it correct to say, for example, that a processor with four cores each running at 3GHz is in fact a processor running at 12GHz? I once got into a "Mac vs. PC" argument (which by the way is NOT the ...
This article gives this comparison chart for the four Windows 8 Editions (Core is usually just called Windows 8). I notice specifically, about half-way down, the max physical processors is listed as 1 ...
I recently read about processors(mainly multi-processor) and i came across, what is called as multi-level caches. I know that they have several cache in this case, for increasing the performance. But ...
I wonder what's the difference between a dual core computer and a computer with 2 processors on the mother board.. I think it's something related with the threads but a I don't understand it very ...
I'm new in this computer terms. So anyone can explain to me what "virtual cores" and "hyperthreading" are at greatest detail a layman can understand? People told me that virtual cores are imaginary ...
So, I am looking at building a new laptop. Two examples of the processors I am looking at are: Intel® Core™ i7-740QM Quad Core 1.73GHz 6MB Intel® Core™ i5-520M Dual Core 2.40GHz 3MB Now I realize ...
If you have to choose (everything else being equal) between one processor with four cores, and two processors with dual core, what are the points in favour of each solution?
I've seen some people suggesting to get a motherboard that supports two processors and stick two Xeon Nehalem processors in it. Could you use this system as a desktop PC or is this useless or even ...
I have an i7 which is supposed to be running a clock speed of 3.2 GHz. However, in the System dialog it shows 3.2 and 3.19 GHz. and in the task manager, it also shows 3.19: What am I missing ...
Dual 5520 Quad-Core Xeon 2.26GHz with HT & Turbo(2.53 GHz) -vs- Single Quad-Core E3-1240v2 (3.4 GHz to 3.8 GHz) I run web hosting. I'm just wondering which would be more ideal. Personally, I am ...
