Default About speeds of CPU yea i know its nubish

Aight i need to get this straight how could i find the actuall speed of my CPU so im not getting ripped off buying a new CPU..Is it in Ghz for internal clocking or is it in Mhz at the External clocking?

Im lookign to get an upgrade from my 2600+ which is fine for me now but i must think of the future..And im sticking with socket A for now

Apreciate the help
Danke

Think of your 2600+ as a 2.6 in Pentium 4 talk.

The Pentium 4 3.6 is = to 3600+ ... which doesnn't exist but just say that it's equal.

The 3500+ would equal a 3.5 in Pentium 4.

That's all you need I think..

To find your speed of the processor you should download CPU Z, its very good.

so basically, my 1.33GHZ Athlon PRO2700+ is equivalent to a 2.7GHZ P4? whoa...oh and...I know 2.7GHZ don't exist, but heck

WEll what im really trying to find is somethign diffent Lol
Thers internal speed liek 2.13 Ghz and external speed like 133 Mhz which one is the real speed to open up programs and like games? Im trying ot figure this out so i know how much more money i hav to make for my upgrades..

CPU-z is the best bet i suppose that will tell you the true current speed of your procesor and if your computer is over 1.8ghz dont moan because there are people including me that are still running 350mhz computers which are well slow, you wouldnt moan now would you?

Oooo so it would be 133Mhz x 400 is it? So im running at about 5.32 Ghz..
WTf?
That doesnt seem right
Maybe i multiply it by bus speed?

i think is should be X 200 not 400, If you want to upgrade and if you are a gamer i think like a sempron would be in your best interest

No this is wrong see the pm i sent you it would be 133 x 16 which is you fsb x multiplier, this wil give you your speed of 2.128 Ghz which is the speed for games and ect,
Hope this helps,

yes, a 2700+ athlon i equivellant to a 2.7Gz pentium. even though the cloc speed is technically slower, this is because AMD Althol chips perform 9 GPU opperations in a clock cycle whilst a pentuim only performs something like 6...

so there is more opperations per clock cycle,

performance for the home user is measure at the most basic level by the processor speed, and front side bus speed...

(I.E Atholons look like they perform lesser)...
however profesionally processing power is measured in Floating point opperations per second.

which is where AMDs seem to accelerate over pentiums, where clock speed is a constant factor...

what you upgrade is really up to you...
however...

Most mother boards have a maximum clock speed, that is to say they wno't take high end chips...

I know that my mother board has the fastest chip it will take, but the cost of the board and chip was les than the cost of the better board, same chip and the a new chip in the future...
and that does still apply if I have to buy a new boardto upgrade...

IMHO, the best upgrade money can buy is definitly more RAM.

Also are you sure that chip is 2700? surely it'sthe 1700+ that rums a 1.3GHz


2000+ athlon runs at 1.6GHz

Yes if that is the bus speed of them both the fsb has to be the same or ut wont work.

What?!? My chip right now wont work in the mother board i want to get?!?!

Heres teh mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130458

So your sure my chip right now wont work in this?

No, as long as it is the barton core 333MHz or 400MHz Throurghbred core, it will function just fine on that motherboard.

Also, root, it has nothing to do with the processes per clock. It is the pipelines. Pentium4 processors use a 20 CPU Pipeline interface whereas the AMD Processors use 8 CPU Pipelines per wafer. This is why AMD is vastly superior to Intel. Good idea though, but actually, they process 16 bits per crest and trough, making 32bits. The new 64bits enable 32bits per crest and trough of each hertz function wave, which is how the processors do 64bit memory extensions, AKA Athlon64s and EM64.
