    Default Equivalent of a 2.4 P4 Processor?

    If a game requires a 2.4 P4 processor or equivalent, would a dual core 2.0 processor work with it?

    There was an identical thread somewhere, but anyway:

    A 2,0Ghz core2duo is going to murder a 2,4ghz P4.

    A 2,4Ghz p4 is going to take like 2min 30 secs for a wprime 32M test, while
    a 2,0Ghz core2duo will take around 40 secs.

    The Mhz mean nothing, the design does. Heck, a 2000Mhz c2d is faster than 5000Mhz p4.

    I apologise, I searched beforehand but didn't find any identical threads, but that is probably my inability to spell equivalent properly

    So a dual core should handle it more than fine? As you say core2duo whereas my laptop is listed as a dual core, I am not entirely sure if those two are the same or not but I thought I should double check.

    And thank you for your help.

    My 1.2ghz core2duo normally beats the p4 2.4ghz of a friend

    Pretty much ANY dual core processor will beat ANY Pentium 4 processor in modern applications.

    Game boxes are in sore need of updating.

    I know for COD4 the requirement is a 2.4 P4 or a 2.0 duo core.

    it is generally better to over-kill the system requirement, the game requirement is just enough to run the game, but experience will be horendous in general, try doubling, the system requirement for best effect. pretty much the faster the computer, the better the experience.

    here, check this website out:

    http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-...st.2436.0.html

    a Pentium 4 3.0GHz
    is roughly equivelant to
    Core 2 Solo (Single Processor, custom-ultra-ultra-low voltage) SU3500 1.4GHz.

    a Pentium 4 3.8GHz
    will be beaten badly by
    Core 2 Duo U7500 (dual core, ultra-low voltage) 1.0GHz
    and will be beaten really badly by even older generation (now budget class) dual core processsor
    Pentium Dual Core T2310 1.4GHz

    Any modern Intel Core 2 or AMD dual core will run circles around a 2.4 GHz P4.

    i think a 600mhz core2duo is the equivalent of a 2.4ghz p4 lol

    I'm have some question marks on the accuracy of the detail on the above website. CPU Passmark is in my opinion a better comparison at http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php . From which we can see a P4 2.4 is a low end CPU with a passmark of 341. Intel Atom (netbooks) are 305, not far behind. Any P4-M 1.6 over greater, core duo, core2duo will perform better.
