Dell :: RAID V.s Dual And Quad Core

Feb 14, 2008

I've seen a number of rescent posts where folks are still setting up RAID platforms even though dual core and now quad core processors are becoming mainstream.Is it the additional chipset that you demand or what is it that requires the additional hp you seek? there is no game out there I cannot play without it and short of CAD I see little use other than proffesional requirements (NIMBUS 2.1 or Zach, perhaps).

HP/Compaq :: Dual 3870s, Dual Screened, Quad Core 17in Voodoo

Jan 2, 2009

It sure does look like that Clevo 18in revealed sometime ago.

Quote:

Under the hood of the 17.1-inch Firefly we found a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad Core CPU, 4GB of RAM, a pair of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 GPUs running in CrossFire mode, and a 7,200 rpm 250GB hard drive. The Firefly spec sheet said the machine is capable of overclocking, but we didnít touch the BIOS.

And a MultiTouch trackpad, Backlit keyboard (with m15x-esque customizable colours), Creative X-Fi audio and a Dual Hinge like the HDX 20.

Dell :: Upgrading M4400 From Dual To Quad Core

Mar 27, 2009

Can this be done without a new motherboard or special heatsink? I originally wanted to do with the an HP 8530w but as the dual-core mobo is not compatible with the quad mobo it's no longer an option for me. Is the m4400 constructed in a similar fashion? or did Dell opt for a universal mobo?

Sony :: Is The Quad Raid 0 Ssd On The Z The Fastest

Apr 14, 2010

Is the quad raid 0 512Gb on the Z the fastest setup in the laptop/mobile world?

How does it compare to the 512GB SSD setup on the new MBP or even the Alienware 15x and 17x?

I asked this on the Alienware forum; but nobody truly knows much other than that the alienware would demolish the Z and that the ssd on the Z is a dual setup like the mbp and alienware. I know its a quad setup, but is it the fastest option availble?

I was under the impression tht it was, and it would be extraordinary on such a tiny laptop.

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.

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 :: Has Anyone Tried Putting A Quad Core In Their SXPS 16?

Jun 17, 2009

Since the SXPS 16 chipset is the PM45, I wanted to know if anyone here has tried upgrading their CPU to a quad core?

I recently bought a QX9200 off ebay that I plan to put in the revised SXPS 16 when it comes out.

Dell :: Can The Studio XPS 1640 Use A Quad Core Processor

Jan 5, 2010

I have been pulling out my hair to figure out if it is possible to improve the processor performance of my Studio XPS 16. I did a significant amount of research before buying this Dell model and, all in all, I am happy with my decision. However, I have noticed that the processor is not as capable as the Q9000 that was in my Asus W90 that I sold.

That was the beginning of my research on the chipset (PM45) and socket type (P: 478) of the Studio XPS 16. This matches the Intel Quad Cores and, more specifically, this particular one: INTEL CORE QUAD Q9200 2.4GHZ 12M 1066 CPU.

Dell told me that these Quad Cores are not compatible with the Studio XPS 1640.

HP/Compaq :: Upgrading A 8530w To A Quad Core

Mar 24, 2009

my plan is to buy an 8530w and swap out the cpu for a Q9100 Quad Core. Anyway, is there special cooling needed for the quad core? I asked only because i noticed that if I tried to add a quad core on the HP website it requires a 'special' graphics card. This got me thinking that they might have added something for the quad cores that they leave out of the normal ones.

Dell :: Intel's Quad-core I7-740QM And I7-840QM Show Up On Laptop Menu

May 24, 2010

This was taken from engadget - Intel's quad-core i7-740QM and i7-840QM show up on Dell laptop menu -- Engadget

"Dell's propensity for dishing out new hardware without an announcement has struck again, though this time the company might have jumped the gun as not even Intel has yet officially acknowledged the existence of these Core i7 CPUs.

The i7-740QM and its senior sibling are straight replacements for the i7-x20QM models: they retain the same cache and eight-threaded operational paradigm while jacking default and Turbo Boost clock speeds up to a maximum 3.2GHz single-core pace on the i7-840QM. Best of all? Dell's price for the 740QM is currently lower than that for its predecessor, so you might wanna order one up before somebody wakes up

HP/Compaq :: Brand NewDV6t Quad Edition Core I7-720QM

Mar 1, 2010

I am selling a VERY, VERY Brand New DV6t Quad Edition Core i7-720QM. The notebook has only been opened and turned on to ensure everything is working. This is a CTO (Customized to order) from HP. This is NOT a refurbished notebook. It is very, very Brand New.

Specifications I've listed below.

I also just recieved this notebook from FED-EX last Wednesday, February 24th 2010.
Notebook also comes with a 2 Year Accidental Damage Protection Warranty (Began on 02/24/10 - Expires on 02/24/2012)

My Reason for selling: The standard 1366x768 resolution in every notebook (including this one) is just way too low for me. I am accustomed to using a 1920x1080P resolution. I am simply selling it to buy a notebook with a 1080P resolution.

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.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Quad Core W520 (with Intel AMT) Powers Off When Attempting To Put It In Sleep Mode

Oct 14, 2014

I have a quad core Lenovo W520 (i7-2820QM) equipped with Intel AMT. I have all RAM slots populated (original 2GB in each that came with the machine). I have updated to the latest BIOS (1.42 at the time of writing) and latest Intel Management Engine Firmware 7.1 (7.1.85.1216 at the time of writing). The machine has Crucial 256GB X100 SSD installed in the main compartment and a regular HDD in UltraBay.
 
The computer acts normally in sleep mode and restart sequence only when Intel AMT states that "ME is in recovery state..." during boot.
 
When it looks like AMT is happy problems begin. The problem is that when I'm trying to put the computer to sleep it goes all the way until the end per normal procedure and then suddenly decides to power itself off! Obviously Windows doesn't like this and displays recovery suggestions after starting the laptop again. This happens when connected to AC and also when disconnected from it. Also, when computer reboots it turns off all power (i.e. the display along with backlight, indicator LEDs turn off and fans spin down for a sec) inbetween and automatically starts up after that.
 
I've tested this on Windows 7 and openSUSE 13.1 (which I had lying nearby) and same behavior happens on both OSes. On Windows, all the latest drivers and updates were installed. So I don't think this is driver nor OS dependent - rather firmware/hardware related problem.
 
What is funny, it doesn't matter whether Intel AMT is activated in BIOS or not. What matters is whether the Management Engine is in some kind of recovery state or not. When it's not, computer starts acting crazy as stated above and behaviour is repeatable. Intel AMT itself seems to work however. Changing the power policy in Intel ME configuration doesn't work for sleep issue.
 
Some things I've also tried doing:
* Replace CMOS battery (measured its voltage before putting it in, of course) with a new one - no effect
* Tried two different brands of SSDs (OCZ Vertex 3 and Crucial X100) - no effect
* Tried both legacy and UEFI modes - no effect
* Scanned RAM for memory errors - no effect
 
Could Lenovo try to repeat this issue and possibly do something about this?

Dell :: Inspiron 15 : Pentium Dual Core Or Core2Duo ?

Dec 7, 2009

Since she only uses it for office, mail, web browsing and some music with Media player or iTunes, I know the integrated Intel GMA4300 will suffice.

However, I'm not sure about the processor. There are three options, a celeron dual core (which is really low-end, so out of the question), a 2.1 Ghz pentium dual-core (T4300) with 1Mb of cache and a 2.2 ghz core2duo (T6600) with 2Mb of Cache. They all have 4Gb of RAM.

Both the pentium dual core and the core2duo come with Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit) so I expect even the dual core can't be that ancient as far as architecture is concerned .....

Dell :: Celeron Or Dual Core For Basic Computing

Oct 8, 2008

I'm shopping for a new laptop to replace a damaged Dell Inspiron 1300. All I would be using the computer for is web surfing, sending and receiving emails and some Quicken. I'm not a gamer nor am I into digital photography. One thing I do know is since the new computer's OS will be some form of Vista I need to make sure that it has at least 2GB of memory, that part I'm certain of based upon so many comments I've read about memory capacity and Vista.

I'm looking at a Dell Inspiron 1525 to replace my 2 year old Inspiron 1300. Dell offers a Celeron processor as the entry level processor on the 1525 and from there you can choose a dual core processor and then several core 2 duo processors. For basic computing needs on a computer having Vista with 2GB of memory would a Celeron processor be enough of a processor for me or should I spend an extra $50.00 USD for the entry level Dual Core processor offered by Dell?
