I bought a system with Intel P3 & then with P4 & then with P4 Hyper Threading.
Then I bought a ystem with P4 Dual Core 3.0 GHz.
Nowthere is a buzz of P4 with Dual Core.
So Now I want to buy a P4 Core 2 Duo system.
What GHz Core2 Duo will give me a performance much better than dual core 3.00 GHz ?
Intel is making a Joe Blow's life much more difficult with their nomenclature like P4 then Hyper Threading, then Dual Core & then Core 2 Duo now.
Why in the [bleep] can they sell their product by sticking to one standard in terms of computing power that a Joe Blow Can understand ?
Please lay it down for me in terms of a Joe Blow because you guys won't be fooled around by these nomencalture of Intel that only a highly technically knowledgeable people like you would understand.
Tell me if it is worth going for a Core 2 Duo & at what GHz that would give me an edge over Dual Core 3.0 GHz ?
Currently I am considering for 2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo Vs 3.0 GHz Dual Core that I own. Is it worth paying the higher price in terms of computing power of Core 2 Duo 2.33 GHz ?
If not then how about Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz ?
That is trhe most I can afford.
I would really appreciate your help in any form and would like to thank you in advance.
