    Default Which one is better for emulation

    Sorry for the dumb question, I'm still learning
    Which one of these it better for emulation.

    Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 519K (1M Cache, 3.06 GHz, 533 MHz FSB)

    Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E7300 (3M Cache, 2.66 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB)

    The Core™2 Duo , but not for much...Maybe Game cube games will play well but no good for ps2 or above.

    Ok thanks, I was just wandering. I saw that the single core had a higher GHz than the dual and from what I understand emulation only uses one core so I wasn't sure.

    The emulators that only use one core will not preform any better for .4 Ghz gain. the core process has much a better instruction set then the pent. plus has a 3M Cache and a much faster FSB... You can put a 8 cylinder in a Honda but without a tuned ECU and larger fuel injectors it's not going to be much faster.

    Most all new emulators use dual core. Its a win win..

    These CPUs are almost similar for emulating but Core 2 Duo is better for this
    Video games is one of the best things on the planet. I'm fond of it!

    I ended up upgrading the E7300 to a E8500 and it plays ps2 fairly well. It's a little slow and the sound is not the best but its good enough for me.
