Well, A 3.6ghz was the same price as a 3.2ghz dual core when I last looked. But since then you can get a 3.4ghz 65nm Dual core for the same price as a 3.6 single 90nm core, meaning in real world they will be identicle in single threaded apps. Sorry if I confused you with this.


Core duo is dual core designed with low electricital requirements to be used in laptops. It is better than a Pentium D dual core, and alot more efficient so can over clock well. Core 2 Duo is the better chip.

ooh..i think i get the picture now!!

So Pentium D is Dual Core...

Core Duo is the one used in laptops...more efficient than Dual Core...

And Core Duo 2 is....well..core duo 2!!lolz!

So my choice for desktops...(taking into consideration that Dual Core 2 is out of the budget...)is between Core Duo and the Hyper Threading....and Dual Core is better....

Right?

lol you have alot of terms mixed up ok......

Yes Pentium D is a Dual Core.

Core Duo is also a Dual Core CPU, used in laptops....more efficient then Pentium D.

And it's Core 2 Duo aka C2D not Dual Core 2.
