Under the hood: What’s your CPU?

The latest news is that AMD is coming out with a quad-core CPU (Athlon II X4) for under Php5,000. If consumers tend to upgrade their PCs every 18 months or so, we should be seeing at least dual cores in homes nowadays.

I’d like to know what processor type/speed you run at home — AMD or Intel?

Mine’s the ff.:

  • Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz
  • AMD Athlon X2 7750 2.7GHz


How about yours?

    Mine according to CPU-Z is AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
    Decent working machine, had it for about a year now for my desktop.

    I agree that high-end processors are becoming cheaper and more accessible to the basic users.

    Picture this: 3 years ago I bought an Intel based PC package for 35k if I’m not mistaken that’s a P4 3.0 flat crt monitor etc.

    The desktop I bought last year cost 27k and with the processor above plus a nice 19″ widescreen LCD.

    Technology is getting really cheap really fast!

    maybe try another twist… a prize from amd for the oldest working personal desktop cpu… with pictures and receipt (i’m sure those things were expensive)!

    miss abe my tatanong lang medyo wala sa topic d2 tanong ko lang merong bang service ung nokia store ung uupgrade ung cellphone parang i swaswap q ung phone q with another model?

  34. Andrew says:

    Q6600 2.4ghz for desktop and core2duo 1.67ghz on my laptop.

    Dun sa nagtatanong for gaming. If your budget is limited you can try a xeon or e8400 since most games use only 2 cores and and they will run better on a procie clocked at 3.0ghz than on a quad core with 2.4 ghz. Pero kung malakas loob mo buy ka q6600 or yung upgraded version nyan (i forgot the name) tapos OC mo. Sulit yan!

  35. Vance says:

    I got this cheap Php 3,500 upgrade coming from my 2yr old Athlon 3800+ without changing mobos (after selling off my old proc, i ended up paying only 2.5k hehe).

    Paired with a GTX 260, i run the latest games on decent settings. A better GPU will get you farther than getting the best CPU.

  63. DJ says:

    The desktop PC at home that I rarely use nowadays has an AMD Sempron 2800+. That’s a really old single-core, 1.6 GHz version of the ancient Athlon 64 processor. It’s not even capable of 63-bit!

    My laptop, which is my primary computer now really, has a more decent AMD Turion X2 that runs at 2.1 GHz.

    This cheap quad-core from AMD is really good news for me. I need as many cores as I can get for my 3D graphics hobby. =D

    desktop ko (pinaassemble ko, la ako pera nun eh) 6 years and counting AMD Duron 1.3 GHz 640 MB RAM. (me tatalo pa?) sa awa naman ng diyos tolerable speed. di naman kami naglalaro ng games. watch lang ng movies and internet. download machine lang. (1 TB external seagate HDD for downloads, 120 GB internal HDD for other downloads)

    3 year-old laptop intel celeron 1.6 Ghz 1G RAM. ayus naman, nakaka-edit naman ako ng simpleng movies dito (windows moviemaker).

    asus eee pc 701 => intel celeron 900 MHz ata (tama ba?) loaded with ubuntu 9.04 jaunty jackalope.

    so far wala pa akong nakikitang need to upgrade. pag bumigay na lang o iobsolete na nila ang win xp. tingin ko baka di na kayanin ng mga pc ko ang win7.
