Technical Question

What is the difference between a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and a 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo?


Trust me, I'm The Doctor.
#3 mean .27 GHz.

It's just a bit faster, same chip. Go with the cheaper processor and get an ASUS motherboard and you should be able to overclock it to 3.0 GHz.

The chip with the higher number is better, stabler, faster, and more expensiver.

That's really about it.

Honestly I really don't think you are going to notice the difference between the 2 because they are so close but buying Intel alone jacks the price up.

Better at what? Stabler in what? Faster in what?

That chip is quite literally the brain of your computer. The number in GHz is the brain's IQ.

But 0.27 GHz, as mentioned, probably isn't enough to really notice anyways...

Jumping from my single core Sempron 2800+ 1.60 GHz to a 2.53 GHz anything would be fantastic!
