I disagree. I have noticed big performance boost from going from a P4 2.6ghz with only 533 buss speed to a P42.6 HT 800 mhz buss speed on Windows Xp. Main time I noticed the difference is with programs running in the back ground like AIM and Limewire and also closing out of game such as Battlefield 1942. My old box with the P4 2.6 ghz with the 533 buss speed slows down big time with out the HT. My HT box runs like a dream and doesn't slow down, only time it does is if I only have 63mb or ram (out of 512mb).

the reason you had that improvement is because the fsb went from 533 to 800 that's over a 50% improvement in your fsb right there regardless if it has HT or not. If you could overclock your 533mhz to 800mhz you'll most likely see similar results.

Closing a game down , has nothing to do with HT or anything like that but is your ram is running low. If you were to upgrade to 1GB you see when you come out of a game it does so very quick! I used to have that problem with 512mb.

I just cant seem to get my "static causing mouse" to quiet down .
I am not really able to pass judgement on what is asked, but this is my issue I do wish I could fix
see I am trying to use my pc as a DAW for creating original music in the form of 16 bit audio...
and I can do well enough but this one issue has me unwell.
I am asking in various forums one by one... with the entry time that goes with each..
so I am grateful if anyone can offer a suggestion
my mouse that is noisy is non usb, wired,optical so in case that was any question..
thanks

Sir, you may consider starting a new topic for your qualm. Or, I recommend visiting Dell Computer Corporation's online forums at:

http://forums.us.dell.com/supportforums?~ck=mn

Despite your computer being or perhaps not being a Dell, they offer a great deal of customer support and satisfaction. Living up to the expectation, as so few corporations these days do so.

In any case, this is a heated debate about dual core processors, if you want to join in. :D

Tom,

Going from 533MHz to 800MHz is an increase of 267MHz. 267/533 IS 50%.

Never fear! The math genius is here! lol (Yea, that was corny.. hehe)

Whenever you are increasing or decreasing from a value, that value is considered the base value and any changes are based on that value and what percent of that value is decreased/increased.

Let's take 533 for example. That is our base value that will be increasing, in this case. We start at 533. We then have to look at how much is being added to this value. We are adding 267 here. Like I just said, any changes are based on 533 and the percent of 533 that was increased, (267). That means that we would have to find out what percentage of 533 that 267 is. In order to do that, we divide 267/533. The answer is 0.5009380863039399624765478424015 or approximately 50.093%. There was a 50%, (rounded to the nearest whole number), increase in MHz from 533 to 800.

If you're going to quote someone and prove them wrong, make sure you're right first.

Cheers!

so what is the difference in 333mhz to 800 mhz then math dude.

If you plug in the different numbers under the exact same categories, you get a 333 base and a 467 increase. You divide the increase of 467 by the base of 333 to get 1.4024024024024024024024024024024 which is 140%. You can check this by multiplying 140% by 333 and then adding that result to 333. It should be close to 800, (since we rounded it to 140%) and it is 799.2. That would be a 140% increase.

am currently using a dual xeon 2.4 ghz cpu workstation and must say it runs pretty well.what am curious about is with the dual cores coming in what happens to the dual cpu systems would they still stick around and be used or get outdated by the dual cores. what kind or performance gains could you be looking at between the two.

Anyone want 6 cores on thier mobo?

One of the first reviews i saw was two dual core opterons runnig in a dual cpusystem with dual 68000 ultra cores running in SLI.....thats 6 times as many cores as my system boasts sticking out of its slots and sockets.....

Ive snapped:
An xbox360 and a 12" iBook....
And a kawasaki er-6n to mod instead

Alright, after some delay Intel shipped us a 3.2GHz (840) dual core processor and 955 chipset motherboard, before I let her go on a standard set of benchmarks that'll not do much for dual core, I'd like for you to tell me what you'd like to see. Keep in mind that we don't have time for elaborate testing schemes, as we're out to see if dual core can prove its worth on the desktop.

If you have any suggestions feel free to post them in the below thread, or email me directly at ssassen@hardwareanalysis.com.

Dual core benchmarking, we'd like your input
