    which is faster?

    Can any one please tell me which is faster?

    P4 Dual Core 930 (3.0GHz)
    Intel Pentium 3 HT

    I have Intel Pentium 3 HT. Someone is offereing me a P4 Dual Core 930 (3.0GHz) at the same price. So I want to know is it worth switching to P4 Dual Core 930 (3.0GHz)?

    Both have 1 GB RAM.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think Dual core means Dual CPU. So I think that dual core must have speed 2 x 3.0 or near that. It is my opinion.

    The dual core P4 is actually Pentium D and will be much faster!

    Thanks for your replies. Will Intel Dual Core 920 (2.8Ghz) also be faster than Intel Pentium 3 HT ?

    IT does appear that generally DUal Core CPU's are very close in performance to that of the same spec Dual Xeon ( e.g. the 905 D at 2.8Ghz will compete with a DUal Xeon 2.8Ghz). Taking the price saving I would go with the Pentium D
