Computer Question: Fast Help Needed

Discussion in 'Chit Chat' started by ByLoSellHi, Mar 9, 2008.

  1. Hey, what, precisely, is the speed difference between the following two processor chipsets?:

    Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor T8100 (2.1GHz 800MHz 3MBL2)


    Intel® Pentium® Dual Core T2370 processor (1.6GHz 533MHz 1MBL2)

    In other words, how much faster, really, is the first?

    I'm not using any intensive programs. Just the usual suspects.

    Both are new systems, and both will have 1GB RAM and will be loaded with XP rather than Vista.

    Is it 10% faster, 20%, 30%....?

    Thanks a million.
