    Default Intel LGA 775 Pentium 4 530 CPU's

    How do these newer CPU's from Intel perform? I see they have 1MB L2 Cache which must help out some.


    I'm ordering a new system to build foe someone tommorrow and I'm kinda wonderinf if I should put a LGA 775 P4 3Ghz CPU in it or stick with the traditional Socket 478 CPU of the same speed.

    From what I have heard it is far supperior, but may not be worth the extra money.(Not to sure about price though)

    A 3GHz 1MB L2 Cache would outproform a 512k L2 Cache easly, and it leaves extra upgradability because of the newer socket type.

    They are the same as socket 478 Prescotts. I'd just go with an 800MHz Pentium 4 Northwood or Prescott (whichever is cheaper at the same clock speed), if you must go with Intel or have a very good reason to. LGA775 motherboards are much more expensive than socket 478 motherboards, and the only advantage to them is PCI-E. If the user might actually make use of PCI-E, than maybe you could get an LGA775 board, but it's going to significantly increase the cost. It would probably be preferable to go with AMD, though.

    Edit: They are not far superior. Even with the 1MB L2 cache and SSE3 Prescotts actually perform worse than Northwoods of the same clock speed, in some cases. They also run much hotter. Given the choice between the two for a system not overclocking, I'd jsut take whichever is cheaper at the same clock speed.

    Oh sorry I was thinking about the newer 1066FSB Chips, little tired today.

    I would go with a 775 board if you choose the right one you can put the new range of intel 64bit chips in, look for 925X/XE chipset. Prices have dropped with intel. Prices for P3 3ghz 478 are now the same as P4 3.0ghz 775 (630) Have done the same with my dell system

    how would the Intel Pentium 4 630 64bit preform over the AMD ATHLON 64 3200+ (2.0 Ghz, 512KB L2 Cache and dual channel) Venice Core??
    BRING IT ON!!!!

    In what application? It would do a lot worse in most games (just a little worse in the rest), beat it in many video encoding applications (and lose in others), perform comparably in most general/business applications (e.g. web browsing, word processing), and lose to it in just about everything else. If any overclocking is done, then it would become a waste of money compared to the Athlon 64.

    The dual core is mostly an improvement on hyper-threading. Instead of 2 logical processors on 1 physical. It's 2 physical. If you're going to play games it will hurt you. Most applications don't even use the power on 1 physical processor which is why Intel introduced hyper-threading to give an edge (and ease of price) to people who multi-task. (mostly office apps., etc...) It really depends on what your friend wants to do and how much to spend. Your 3 GHz 1MB L2 cache is only going to be handy for multi-tasking, editing (encoding, photoshop, etc...). My opinion, go with the AMD or listen to Yawg on the intels. Northwood or Prescott on 800MHz. You'll find you can get a better performance boost out of them, and they're cheaper.

    Well it's actually two physical cores with two logical cores each for Intel, and this does help in some cases (most of which will never happen). I'd recommend dual-core AMD regardless of whether or not you use multi-threaded applications because it allows you to game while having many more background programs running (as opposed to none, which is what you should have with a single-core CPU).

    A bit of homework here would help you but basically eat@joes is right as only the 840EE is the only desktop Intel dual core CPU with HyperThreading.
