Dell :: Core Duo T2400

Jul 18, 2007

I have a core duo, not core 2duo, t2400 running at 1.83 GHz in my dell e1705...

what kinds of Core 2 Duo processor I can replace it with? can i do the new 700's with the 4mb cache?

I have a 256mb nVidia Go 7900 video card, so thats the kinda motherboard I have.

will i see alot of gain by replacing my processor?

I only have one gig of RAM... should i just upgrade to two and forget the processor?

Dell :: Upgrading From T2400 To T7200

Jan 13, 2008

I never thought a few hundred Mhz and a shrunken die would make that much of a difference, but when I took out the 1.83 Core duo and bought the T7200 2.0 engineering sample Merom, I was quite surprised how much of a difference I noticed! Since I'm using a 7950GTX my video card isn't much of a bottleneck (cept for games like Crysis) and watching cut scenes and movies and everything in general seems so much smoother with this new CPU. If anyone is considering upgrading, it is worth it if you have a decent GPU. This leads me to the conclusion that the CPU plays a much larger role in laptops than I originally thought.

Acer :: Dual Core SU2300 Benchmarks Vs Single Core SU3500 - 1410

Nov 3, 2009

I bought the Acer 1410 with the single core SU3500 Core 2 Solo CPU. It looks like Acer decided to release them with the SU2300 now, which is dual core at 1.2GHz (compared with 1.4GHz of SU3500).

Does anyone have any benchmarks comparing the two, and/or if they have a solid understanding how much better it would perform compared with the SU3500? I also see that the single core AS1410 with Celeron M @ 1.3GHz sells at the same price as the dual core.

Acer :: Upgraded Core Solo T1350 To Core 2 Duo T7200 On Aspire 5570 Guide

Jan 23, 2009

(UPDATES: DIY Bluetooth module guide added below)

upgrading my Aspire 5570 notebook more than a year ago. This time, Iím feeling lucky to share some of my experiences about how I finally upgraded my CPU from a Core Solo T1350Core 2 Duo T7200.

Again, thanks to everybody here in Notebookreview forum especially adinu, hoggie, Mack1982, TehSuigi, krazyphire and bigozone for their insights and knowledge that helps me a lot throughout the whole process. So, letís get started!

Pre-upgrading

Please refer to these post before you start. It'll save you a lot of time and trouble later on.
Upgraded Acer 3680 Celeron CPU to a T5300!
Aspire 5315 CPU Step-by-Step Upgrade Guide

What youíll need :Your new CPU (make sure it's compatible with your system ie; socket, FSB)Latest BIOS from Acer (upgraded to 1.3505 or latest)A good thermal paste (I would recommend Tuniq TX-2 or Arctic Silver 5 as well)Basic tools (screwdrivers, forceps, kitchen paper)Body static discharger (I would definitely recommend this as a precaution)Some alcohol, ear buds, sand paper grid 600,1200 & 2000 (optional for heat sink lapping)Lastly TIME and PATIENCE (youíll be needing these a lot definitely!)When youíre ready, lets get our hands dirty.

How to disassemble your notebook?
I found out a very good video tutorial on how to disassemble my Aspire notebook on YouTube. So please take your time to view it and follow step by step as shown to help you to go through the process.

Lapping your heat sink (optional)
Although itís not necessary, but I would recommend this process as another way to improve heat dissipation on your newly installed CPU. Refer to this page for detailed instructions.

The simple process:Clean your heat sink from old thermal paste residues with alcohol or equivalent of it using ear buds and kitchen papers.Apply a 600-grid sandpaper to smoothen the heat sink surface which comes into contact with your CPU.Repeat the process again with a 1200-gid sand paper until youíre satisfied.Finally, finish up by applying a 2000-grid sand paper to give you an almost mirror-finished surface. Wipe clean any dirt and residues left.....................................

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16dual Core Or The HDX 18quad Core For Video

Mar 2, 2009

I want to upgrade my old laptop to something nice, and am torn between to systems.

An HDX 16 with:

2.40 Ghz dual core duo ( P8600 chip )
6 gigs of ram

OR...

An HXD 18 with
2.0 Ghz QUAD core ( QX9000 chip )
4 gigs of ram

both systems have the same video card ( Nvidia with 512megs of ram ) 500 gig hard drive.

What would be the faster machine for doing video ? and what would be the overall faster machine ?

I realize that not all applications will take advantage of a quad-core chip like the QX900, so this is why I"m asking. if the dual-core P8600 chip @ 2.40 Ghz in the HP HDX 16 with that 6 gigs of ram will actually be faster overall than the quad core would be, and perhaps even be faster at rendering video ?

what the performance difference is between the Intel Core i7-620M and the . Intel Core i7-820QM. I always thought the quad core 820QM was faster, but on the hp website the dual core 620M is more expensive.

Is the 620M faster? And is it faster for specific things only?

Dell :: [ XPS 1645 Core I7] : Which SSD Drive Should I Get

Feb 5, 2010

With a throttling issue fix on the rails and the ability to push this baby to the max, I'm planning to offer my precious a little SSD upgrade.

I've been interrested in the Intel X25-M Mainstream 2.5in 160GB SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Solid State Drive (SSDSA2MH160G2R5) which I can get at a descent price here in Japan.

As I'm not an SSD expert, I don't know if such choice is wise.

Dell :: Does My Chipset Support Core I7?

Apr 13, 2010

I'm thinking about upgrading to Core i7 for my laptop (Studio 1555, since I run games and stuff on it, and don't have enough resources to build my own PC.

I researched, but I always like asking to make sure... does the PM45 chipset support i7 processors? I usually know this stuff, but i* is pretty new, and I'm running behind.

I currently have a freshly undervolted Core 2 Duo 2.66Ghz (I forget the model number).

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 To Get Core I7-820QM .. What To Do?

Sep 21, 2009

http://www.gadgetfolder.com/dell-stu...processor.html

They say it's available now... But it isn't on the site yet. I know the platform is released in a couple of days, so these people probably are just a bit off.

My XPS 16 is still in the mail on it's way to me. Now I'm seriously thinking about returning it and waiting... I pulled the trigger knowing DX11 hardware was right around the corner..

But as it's a laptop and not my main gaming machine I figured it wouldn't matter much as the 4670 is still a beast and can handle all the new windows 7 features.

Sep 7, 2009

Just curious they are both 45nm but the Core i7 is using up 45watts TDP vs the Core 2 Duo only 35watts TDP

any other roadblocks or will it just not fit.

I think the mobile Core i7 has 4 Cores each Hyperthreading they should be very fast.

Dell :: M90 Dual Core Processor

Jul 13, 2009

I recently did a clean install of Windows XP Pro on my M90. This is the first dual core I've owned.

After installing all necessary drivers and Microsoft updates, I am very disappointed with the overall performance.

Is there something unique with dual core processors that I am unaware of? Let me give one example. No matter how many times I run disk defragmenter, my hard drive is still around 40% fragmented.

Dell :: Overclocking Core 2 Extreme

Jun 9, 2009

You can see the processor I have in my Signature, Core 2 Extreme X9000.

Basically, I've never dabbled in overclocking before. However I have been running a lot of CPU intensive programs recently, and decided it might be time to try and overclock the CPU. I have a few queries though.


1: Is it normal for the fans to be on full blast when overclocked? I put it up to 3.4GHz, and as soon as I started my computer it sounds like it's going to take off...

2: Will this void my warranty? In the BIOS Dell says it can cause problems and run down the life quickly - However it doesn't say it'll void the warranty. Confirmation anyone?

3: In reference to question 1, if @ 3.4GHz it will continue to sound like a jumbo jet, what speed/s can I go to without it maxing out the fan?

4: My temperature for my CPU is currently jumping from between 48 and 61 degrees quite rapidly. Is this normal when overclocked?

Dell :: About Up-coming Arrandale (Core I3/i5) Laptops?

Jan 6, 2010

I want something like this:

(These are the must-haves)
15" chassis class
Core i5 CPU
1920x1200 or 1920x1080 resolution
8GB of ram
Preferably an SSD, but I can wiggle on this one
Upgraded battery
Don't care too much about graphics, and since the i3/i5's have a built in video I'd go with that, it looks to be fast enough for me.

Budget is about $1500-2000

Right now there is the Alienware m15x with the mobile core i7, but I don't REALLY need a quadcore, or the faster graphics, or the power consumption of either. I am hoping that there is an inspiron or Studio coming out (tomorrow?!) that can be made to meet my above specs... Anyone have any info?

Dell :: New Studio 15z Core I5 Model 1569 At Best Buy

Jan 5, 2010

I just came back from Best Buy and saw the new Dell Studio 15z (1569) with the Intel Core i5! It's less than 1" thick! Slot load DVD, HDMI, displayport, 3 USB, SD Reader, and matte lid! This one was brown. The best part is the battery! It is no longer in the back like the current dell studio 15/17. It is now flat and thin like the HP Envy's!! It's now underneath the laptop!

Sorry I couldn't take pictures but they just put it out and had a HAND WRITTEN price tag with info! It has the Intel Core i5 420 I think. You really have to see how THIN and SMALL the laptop is! I hope they make a 14"!

Dell :: PC MicroWorks Blackhawk XR5 Quad Core

Dec 14, 2007

I've been a Dell guy for probably around 8 years or so. I always buy the XPS's for the power / warranty / ruggedness. Now I find myself searching for a different manufacturer as they seem to be pricing themselves out of the market with second tier components.
Someone here mentioned the PC MicroWorks Blackhawk XR5 Quad Core and I took a look at it. This thing reminds me of what I used to expect from the XPS line.
Is there a subforum on notebookforums.com to discuss this product?
If not, I'm happy to do it here.
Anyone have any experience with this company?

Dell :: Penryn Minimum Core Temperature

Jul 13, 2009

It seems like the temperature readings from both cores of my P8400 on my Dell Latitude E6500 running Windows 7 RC have some sort of minimum built into them. The reported temperatures will never drop below 32 for Core 0, and 39 for Core 1. Even after I resume from suspend, when the CPU should be at room temperature, as soon as I boot up it's 39/32. Similarly, while temperatures above that on SpeedFan show normal fluctuations, like you expect from a CPU temperature reading, once it hits the floor, it just becomes a flat straight line.

I'm not sure if this is the sensors, the software, or what.
