The diferrence between the Intel's processors

Hi every budy,

May I ask you what is the deferrence between Core, Centrino, Pintium M, Pintium D ?

Thanks Wink

It are names for series of intelprocessors,
Core 2 Series, are the latest and the fastest, Where Pentium D is older, more energy inefficient.

I believe Centrino and Pentium M are processors designed for mobile devices like laptops but I am not entirely sure.

any idea what exactly is the difference between core 2 duo, and core 2 extreme... cant find any help for that on google/wikipedia

The main difference is on L2 cache (Extreme series has got 2x^MB (!) of cache, Core 2 Duo has got 4MB), multipler (Extreme has got unlocked multipler), see article below for more details:

BUT, for home use (if U aren't extereme gamer Smile ) Core 2 Duo is the best choice. Extreme is expensive and difference in performance in games is marginal. Refer to comrarison test between C2D and C2D Exterme. Also Core Duo (eg. E2140) is good for home use, because You can overclock it from 1.6 to 3.0 with box cooling and nearly stock voltage!

TYVM!
I had a look at the prices for extreme. HOLY CRAP they are sooo expensive, but not even much better. And in like 1 week they will be outdated. lol

Yeah they are just like the older P4 Extremes were they gave you a little more L2 Cache for a lot more money. If you are looking into getting a processor, look at the $200-$300 range for the normal processors like the new QX9550 Quad Core intels. Thats where you get a good price and preformance. The extremes are just for the guys who like to burn money, like the people who buy the 8800 Ultras.

The Extreme editions of Intel processors are intended for people that want to hit insane speeds. They're not really necessary to play the latest games at high resolutions and settings. You can do just fine with a Core 2 Duo E6850 for gaming. I wouldn't suggest any kind of Celeron unless you're just someone who surfs the web and checks e-mail. Anything with a M is a processor designed for notebook users, they usually designed to use less power than their desktop cousins.

Actually, I'd class the main difference between the two as this:

The Core 2 Duo has 2 processing cores. The Core 2 Extreme has 4.
