Which processor is best?

  Simmpy 18:34 19 Mar 2010

I am about to buy a new PC. The new Sony Vaoi All In Ones impress. However they don't have the new i7,i5,i3 processors. Is there a big difference in speed (not using for gaming) between this latest generation of processors and for instance the E7500 Duo 2.93Ghz?

processor power isnt really utilised in games anyway,

yes there is a big difference,

the i7 and i5 are quad cores [dunno about i3] and also the cpu architecture, cache sizes etc combine to give a much better cpu than the dual core E

whether you will use this is dependant on what you use your computer for

i do fair few video encodes so my i7 at 3.8GHz [x4 for quad core] is probably 4x as quick as the the the E7500 you list

look for an i7 cpu if possible, I did a self build with an i7 well impressed with it.

Dont be so quick to dismiss the E7500 , its a formidable processor.

There are some new Sony all in ones and laptops coming out as soon as next week I believe .
I do not know what the specs are ???

They are on the Sony website !! one is a Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E8400 and the other is Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E7500 so not really what you wanted to hear

Just one point - the i7 is an expensive processor, so I don't think you can expect one at that price point anyway.
