There is absolutely no difference. They are simply branded differently. A "Centrino" processor is any Pentium M, Core Solo, Core Duo, Core 2 Solo, Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, ore Core i7 coupled with an Intel chipset, wireless card, and integrated graphics.

The Intel Pentium 4 is an older desktop processor. "Centrino" is a label for systems that contain an Intel mobile chipset, wireless card, and processor. A "Centrino Duo" would thus be a system with a Core Duo processor.

There is little difference between Core 2 Core and Centrino Duo. Both are dual core processors but Core 2 is slightly better. Centrino is part of the Intel mobile platform.

The Centrino (who's dual-core variant is known as the Centrino Duo) is an Intel platform, consisting of an Intel Core Duo processor, an Intel Chipset, and Intel Integrated Wireless 802.11b/g. The Core Duo is a mobile processor that improves on the Pentium M. The Core 2 Duo is Intel's first chip based on the Core Microarchitecture. It boasts the highest x86 performance seen to date, with impeccable performance-per-watt metrics -- perfect for mobile platforms.

That depends. Centrino is more of a technology used on processors, rather than a processor itself. Look at the actual processor type when you are looking at the specs. if it is a Mobile Pentium, the Athlon 62x2 is a better processor in most cases. However, if it is anything from the Core Duo or Core2 Duo line, they will be better than the Athlon in most cases.

intel just came out with the centrino duo which i believe are the fastest mobile processors right now

User Avatar

hey... centrino 2 is actually core 2 duo processor manufactured by Intel that is much expensive than amd turion x2 64 ultra dual core mobile processor i currently have the "amd" and m really satisfied by its performance people say it gets heated up but i use my laptop for 24hrs+ n i don't find any heating up issue... as compared to Intel theres not much difference in the performance

The difference is that the Htc Hd2 is for T mobile and it has a snapdragon processor, and the t9193 is unlocked even when you bought it new and it does not have a fast processor like the T mobile one

The mobile processor means that is can process information Mobile without having to add a data cord.

Very little, actually. The Pentium Dual-Core has a smaller L2 cache, making it just slightly slower than a Core 2 Duo at the same clock speed.

Quad-Core is the latest processor for mobile phones. So go for it....

The AMD Sempron processor is a budget processor developed to be placed in computers that are designed for everyday use. They are a single core processor, but the newer ones have 64-bit support and are sometimes called Sempron64's. The Athlon processor is a little more efficient due to the dual cores.

The basic diffreence is that in a mobile processor, they build it so that it uses as little power as possible, so that your battery lasts as long as possible. There are many ramifications to this, but that's the motivation.

User Avatar

They're from different processor families, Pentium processors are generally used in vintage computers as they are power hungry and slow

User Avatar

well the difference is that portable Internet access is portable and mobile Internet access is mobile simple as that.

There's not a difference. They are one and the same.
