Core 2 Duo vs. Pentium D ~ Help
Posted 10 October 2006 - 07:17 PM
I wondering which is going to be faster as I can just pop either chip in my board. You'd think the 920 would be faster because of more cache and 1GHz more in speed. BUT the E6300 is on a 1066MHz BUS. Does anyone know of a comparison out there between the two? I use the chips mainly for video editing. I want the fastest chip, obviously, to be in my primary machine.

(this is only the winstone tests which look at video)
The bottom line is that your E6300 at first blush holds its own very well. When overclocked, it should outclass the Pentium D.

Intel finally seems to have gotten that same message with their Core 2 Duo CPU's so this doesn't surprise me how they've come up with some pretty good new designs.
Now with the advent of multi-core CPU's coming down the pipe, including some news about QUAD core silicon, this should be good news for those that are heavy into multi-threaded apps like 3D Rendering and the like
