Dell :: Should I Upgrade From Core Duo To Core 2 Duo

Jan 2, 2008

I have an xps m1710 with 2 gig ram, 7900gtx card and a core duo 2 ghtz processor. My company has decided they are willing to pay to upgrade my CPU to a core 2 due 2.16 ghtz. Should I take the upgrade?

Aside from the fact thats free and all, my real concern if it will yield better gaming performance and battery life.

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 Inspiron N5010 :: Upgrade From Pentium To Core I5?

Jan 6, 2015

Does Inspiron N5010 support the i5-480M processor? I've found this thread but I don't see it in the supported CPUs list.

Currently I'm running on a Pentium P6100 and I'm thinking of upgrading to i5 480m. Is this upgrade worth it?

Finally I want to ask if the existing cooling system is sufficient for an i5 480m because I don't want my laptop to suffer from overheating issues.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 Ram Upgrade With I7-3520M Dual Core?

Nov 7, 2012

I bought the i7-3520M (dual) and I looked in the manual to see what slots to use for my memory upgrade and the instructions were completely off (where the dummy stick is supposed to be and where it actually was).
 
I purchased two 8GB (Kingston) sticks to replace the 4GB that came installed.  I took out the original 4GB under the keyboard and replaced it with the new 8GB Kingston.  Everything worked great and I've been using it that way for about a week.
 
Tonight I decided to go ahead and install the other 8GB.  I assumed it would go in the bottom slot where there's a dummy stick.  I pulled out the dummy and placed my 8GB there.  Turned the laptop on and... nothing.  It wouldn't power on at all.  I took my 8GB out and put the dummy back and it worked fine.  Just to make sure I didn't get a bad stick, I replaced the one under the keyboard with my other 8GB and it worked fine there.  My question is where is my second 8GB supposed to be installed and does that one dummy stick always stay where it is?  It does have a "do not remove" graphic on it, but I thought it was only because the laptop came with one stick and if you were putting two in you would replace it.

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?

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

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?
