To buy or not to buy the new Processor

Processor Comparison – Part 15 of 16

If you are a normal user and dont do alot of number crunching, you may not find a significant difference between these processors in day to day use but if you are a power user and do a lot of DVD ripping, video conversion, extreme 3d gaming, mp3 and video editing, photo conversion, programming or even file compression (zip or rar etc), you will need a faster processor. Go for a top of the line processor if your current machine is out of date but the price of these processor drops faster than the apple falling from a tree. So watch out and dont spend too much on a processor.

I’ve tried to simplify the comparison between these processors in this article but if you think not enough detail has been given, please go through the following table that has been taken from Intel’s website and it compares five different processors, one example from one technology each.
