Difference between Core 2 Quad and Core 2 Duo

Difference between Core 2 Quad and Core 2 Duo

Core 2 Quad is two Core 2 Duo processors placed together.

8 MB of Shares L2 Cache
1066 MHz front-side bus

How it all started:
Pentium 4
Pentium Dual Core: Two Pentium 4 Placed Together
Core 2 Duo: True Dual Core Processor
Core 2 Quad: Two Core 2 Duo Placed Together

The performance different between Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad is not much because most of the current applications do not use all the 4 cores efficiently.

Recommend to spend little more ($40) and go for Core i5 instead of Core 2 Quad.

    With Operating system support quad processor power of pc can improve trmendously in near future.

    Thanks, so you're saying is that a core 2 quad will not efficiently use all the 4 processors.So suppose I am playing a game needed for only 2 cores.If play it on a quad core, it wouldnt make a difference? And suppose I play a game which requires a quad core, so then it will make a difference, wouldn't it

    Well the answer is good but then again. "Not much difference" so whats better still right now. Since i see some pcs basically the same price between 2 duo and 2 quad

    even though the current applications do not use all the 4 cores efficiently, we can run several tremendous apllications at a time effectively

    Only half-reasonable answer. I wanted to know how the performance compares to Pentium and Pentium Dual Core with similar clock speeds, and most importantly, does Win 7 use Quad efficiently, and when will common software start using it efficiently.

    Because until the time when the average heavy cpu user (draftsmen, architects, graphics designers, etc)have software that takes significantly better advantage of the quad capabilities of the two dual core processors, then few people will actually notice the difference. It is my belief that computers were designed to be used for working people, not cpu designers.
