The only way you could really compare the two would be to use mips (million instruction per second), this is because like the other two have stated, they were both built for different purposes. AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition 42,820 MIPS at 3.0 GHz 14.3 3.5 2009  ARM Cortex-A15 (Quad core) 35,000 … Continue reading The Xbox’s CPU is better at handling games mostly because of optimization, games for the Xbox 360 are specifically optimized
It won’t make your games perform much better. I’d suggest upgrading your graphics card first, then if you’re still having issues overclock your CPU. Very few games are CPU limited in terms of performance, the only one that comes to mind now is Supreme Commander. With CPU overclocking, you’ll need to buy an aftermarket CPU … Continue reading Don’t bother overclocking your CPU.
A central processing unit (CPU), or sometimes simply processor, is the component in a digital computer that interprets instructions and processes data contained in computer programs. CPUs provide the fundamental digital computer trait of programmability, and are one of the necessary components found in computers of any era, along with primary storage and input/output facilities. … Continue reading A central processing unit (CPU), or sometimes simply processor, is the component in a digital computer that interprets instructions and processes data contained in computer programs
Ok, so I recently got all my parts to build my computer except the cpu, so I decided to build it anyway before the cpu got here… But, before I had finished the build I tried to boot my pc to test ( I only had the ram, motherboard, psu, fan case, hdd and optical … Continue reading CPU Central Processing Unit. Central. as in necessary.
After you find out your model number do a Google search or your preferred engine asking ” what cpu’s are compatible with (insert motherboard here) After you find out then pick the compatible cpu of your choice. I wouldn’t recommend buying used as you don’t know how they have been treated. Most new cpu’s will … Continue reading I’m upgrading my CPU and thought I would try to do it myself this time. I’m just needing a little guidance. Should I hit the PC and do it? Or what? Step by step would be nice 🙂 thanks.
Pair that up with a couple gigs of OCZ memory, a good ASUS or ABIT board, and a monster heatsink, and let the overclocking begin. If you water cool your setup, you’ll be unbeatable! If you’re an AMD guy, go with their FX Quadro Series CPU (2 CPU’s really). It may not be as fast … Continue reading As of right now, the fastest CPU on the market is the Intel Core Duo QX6800. Quad cores, 8MB of CPU Cache, and 2.9 GHz of blistering speed. It is the king of the hill….for now. It should probably come down a bit in price by the 4th quarter.
You will find that most games are sufficient for i3-2100, but max out the CPU to 100% and a GPU running at 60% is CPU bottlenecking and not getting the highest frame rates. There are not a lot of games that an i3-2100 cannot handle at maximum settings, but, as I wrote to start, sometimes; … Continue reading CPU intensive Far Cry 3:
Any 2nd generation or higher Core i5 won’t bottleneck the GTX 670. The Core i5 2400 & 3330 are fine. Or of course anything higher like the 2500, 3470, 3570 etc On the AMD side, an FX-8320 or 8350.
The CPU does the work of the computer. When you click something, the CPU processes it. Think of two CPUs as two brains. As they say two people working on one problem work better than one. Dual core CPU’s as they are known are essentially two brains. A 2GHZ single core CPU is half as … Continue reading Think of the CPU as the brain of the computer.
The reason that people have two CPU’s is because it is the safest way to go when looking to boost your computer’s processing speed (these are mostly on servers), it is basically the equivalent of having one very powerful CPU reasons why people choose to have two CPU’s instead of one can differ maybe its … Continue reading CPU Stands for “Central Processing Unit” and is an electronic circuit that can execute computer programs.
