Best factor for determining the bettering of a CPU

  1. Hi all,

    First of all, if my English is not good please pardon me.:)

    Now the problem; when comparing many CPUs with each other, which factor is the best one? For example, there are many various types, like, core to due, dual core, pentium, core ix, and many many other flavors.
    When I'm at this bad situation I save myself by choosing the best one by their HZ unit :).
    For example, when there are many varous CPUs I say most powerful one is that has bigger frequency unit. 2.66GHZ<2.88GHZ.
    Is it a true solution?

    Thanks guts.

    Nowadays, clock speed doesn't really matter much. It is more about architecture, efficiency, and core count. I would look at the "Core I" series since it is Intel's newest line of CPUs. AMD FX CPUs are also pretty good. Tell me if you have anymore questions!

    Thank you very much mate for you info.
    I'd think speed which is determined by number of cycles per second (hz) is most importand in CPU.
    OK, about the I series of Intel it's easy to recognize the quicker but what about other series except from that I series? And also I don't know of FX factor in AMD's CPUs.

    Easy way is price.

    Yeah generally better technology is more expensive.

    Yes, but not for a person following the computer field.

    Here are factors that determine CPU:
    1. Ghz the more the better.
    2. Cache the more the better.
    3. The Generation the newer the better.
    4. IIRC, it depends on design, it has 200 and intel varies in this term

    Thank you very much. Could you please have more info on no.4?
