2MB l2 cach vs 4MB l2 cash PCSX2
#1
Rainbow 
I'm looking to upgrade my laptop processor( currently t5450 @ 1.66ghz, 667MHZ, 2mb l2 cach)


Looking to upgrade them to one of the following :

T5800 @ 2GHZ, 800MHZ fsb, 2MB l2 cach .

or

t7300 @ 2ghz, 800mhz fsb, 4MB l2 cach


I'm torn between the two processors, can someone tell me which one pcsx2 would run faster on .

Price wise, they are practically the same price- about $14.



Games i'm running that i'm reaching almost full speed

-Animal crossing 40-45 fps

-WWE here comes the pain 35-45 fps

Hopefully the upgrade will bump me up to atleast 50-60 fps

4mb cache is better, I think the t7300 also supports the sse4.1 instruction set so you could use the sse4 gsdx for a slight performance boost.

Though you might just want to save up for a i5/i7 pc since you will get much better performance.

Don't waste your money on these processors as its not worth it..A i5 would do you good or a new ivy bridge processor.

Did you bother to read his above mentioned CPU? Core 2 Duo for laptop starts with T, desktop counterpart starts with E. His PC is a laptop.
