Which do you think would be better for me
Intel Pentium 4 - 3.04ghz
Intel core dua - 1.7ghz
Duh the core2duo.
It's not cause the p4 has more ghz that it is faster. It's ooooollllldd technology now.
You could also get a quad core!
But 1.7 is pretty low. Even for a dualcore
yup very low
go for a quad or a dual core with atleast 2.2 ghz
Of those two options, the dual core will be better. But a slightly higher clocked dual core would be better still.
get the pent. 4 cuz 1.7ghz is waaay to low for a dual core. just make sure u have at least 2gb of ram... way more is better
You can't compare a single core and a dual core directly based on clock speed. A dual core can perform tasks in parallel meaning that even a 1.7Ghz dual core will outperform a 3Ghz single core processor.
I believe that even being a dual-core a 1.7ghz processor would be too little. You have to remember not everything will run in parallel. I think a 3.04ghz P4 is still a decent chip.
You best bet is still to find a 2.0+ghz dual core tho.
Yea I just bought a laptop with a AMD Turion x2 @ 2.0GHz per Core
Yeah, I agree with everyone else, well, I guess you could go with 2.0ghz, no lower. BTW this 1.7ghz pentium m sucks balls.Sure wish I had a 2.4ghz macbook like my buddy. So save a bit and get a good core 2 duo.
EDIT: whats the proc for, is it for a desktop because if you are thinking of swapping cpu's in your laptop you can't. And if not,you never know, some people are really misinformed on what to do when you upgrade a cpu.
