Confuse on what (2/6)... September 03, 2006 11:00 PM


Core 2 Duo (dual core, desktop/laptop, current top gun in benchmark performance
Core Duo (dual core)
Core Solo (notebook)

Pentium D 9xx series (dual core, better than 8xx series)
Pentium D 8xx series (dual core, heat issues)

Pentium 4 (oldest available CPU still on market; It does applies in Asia, but maybe not in  the Americas or Europe)

Pentuim M (laptop, enhanced/improved version from ‘Mobile P4’)

Celeron (cheaper, lower performance)
Mobile Pentium 4 (older laptops)

:: NOTE - “Centrino” is not a CPU; it is a specification for a laptop/notebook that
includes particular CPU's ::


Aboves are the major definition of central processor unit (CPU) produced by the two major chipmakers that are currently available on the market and used for all brand of desktops and laptops.

Next... we shall delved on the evolution of Intel’s CPU, starting from their Pentium III (P3) series up to present.

Ok. Now, the dual core issues....

Basically, if you are using AMD - and why would any sane person consider Intel over AMD? With Athlon64 you can switch directly to a dual core version CPU.

It runs faster, smoother, cooler and more energy efficient....and AMD CPUs addressed legacy hardware and software (aka: backward/forward compatibility) issues too.

Here are the whys…

The two major advantages of AMD over Intel are:
1. AMD works with older softwares and hardwares, smoothly.
2. AMD CPUs can do things that Intel still can't, even with "open source" on AMD technology.

The advantage of "dual-core" under any namebrands:
1. You have "two" CPUs for the price of one
2. It runs faster, cooler and trully power-efficient
3. You can plug-in an AMD dual core CPU in place of your AMD single core CPU and it should run with little or no tweaking required.

AMD… cooler than Intel? Well, that has to do with the individual core's design applied by AMD versus Intel’s logic.

An example of that is Intel’s offering prior to the availability of their “Duo-suffixed” model.

One hot running core is bad enough; adding a second hot-running core doesn't improve matters. Those Intel Pentium D 8xx series CPU's certainly did not run cooler than the Pentium4 Prescott cores.

Confuse on What CPU is best For Your New Desktop/Laptop? August 28, 2006 6:56 PM

With the recent proliferation of new and more powerfull CPUs on laptops and desktops, none-techies do find it hard to differentiate which is what. More so if you’re in the market for upgrading/replace your desktops and specially laptop, tne more confuse you get after a saletalk in a PC shop. 

I was prompted to make some research on the internet after being bombarded by a couple of friends who came running to my place for a weekend chat about their plan to replace their current machines. In verbal explanations, both got so confused and requested me to make a hardcopy so they can follow those geeky terms. So here it was, as I decided to share what I have done for them, to you folks at Care2. 

In general, newer (usually better, but that depends on usage) CPU's are listed

first. You may also wanna check out the CPU CHARTS at [ ] for performance scores and more details. 

If I needed to get a computer today, my personal choice would have been an ''AMD A64 X2 – dual Core'' machine for general/video editing use. But you may have your own choice opting for a fast Intel beyond their P4 ( aka: Pentium 4). 

:: NOTE - that all this as listed below can change overnight, as things really do on the world of Web and computing :: 

A short rundown of what’s in the current offing starts here, starting from the newest (top to bottom) to the oldest available type on the market…



Athlon 64 X2 (dual core)

Athlon 64 FX (single and dual core models, gamer plus)

Athlon 64 (single core)

Turion 64 X2 (dual core, laptops)

Turion 64 (laptops)

Sempron (cheaper, lower performance)

Athlon XP (older)

FREEware equivalent of "Proksi" January 14, 2005 11:38 PM

which is written in Java.

This is the next topic i shall post within header.

this "javaNized" proxy is MORE powerfull & a bit more complex than "Proksi" ( a freeware i posted previously within these folders ).

Once i finished editing the article/links, you folks should see it below this post.

Of Recent.... November 23, 2004 11:07 AM

I had forwarded a 2nd FREE e-Seminar to my C2 frens about VoIP which is slated on 22nd Nov. For you who have attended it or knows what VoIP was, you might be interested on dwnloading one to try on your desktop. Here is a CNet link for FREE VoIP dwnloadables; Try downlading "Skype"! It is one of the most advance & BEST RATED free VoIP currently available. About VoIP (aka: 'Voice over IP' = FREE PC Call to Land Lines); And a couple of links herein; Happy Knowledges...  [ send green star]
In a short while.... November 17, 2004 11:37 AM

the much awaited '.jsp' based openSource FREEware for SoHo users.

This one is about 'net' connectivity, a util like the 'Proksi' that I had posted previously.

And after that, the expected 'review' that I and some programming colleagues of mine had done on  C2's much celebrated "downloadable
addy client" ,  which is a bit late in posting.

Just be patient folks, and thanks.

Next Stop... October 23, 2004 12:47 AM

"OpenSource" webConnecting FREEware! Yep folks. This one is for the benefit of our ever-growing brethrens using openSource OS such as Linux/freeBSD/BeBox, etc. It's written in mine & numerous C2 members' beverage - Java (Blue Mountain is my fav)! I shall post the details here soon enough & thanks for all your patience & patronage in reading my articles. ...will be back.  [ send green star]
