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 ...
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 ...
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'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 ...
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 well....
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 ...
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 Dell Precision T5400 workstation with two Intel Xeon x5450 (quad core) processors, and I installed Windows 10 Pro (updated from 8.1 Pro), and OS see just one processor. Device manager see 8 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Is system tick timer interrupt in SMP system synchronized among CPUs/cores? If not, how is it solved?* Sorry for my English. EDIT: With system tick timer interrupt I mean interrupt from system timer ...
