Hi folks,:)

I know this sounds like apple and oranges comparison ... but bear with me and help me out ... I have read ton of reports and it comes down the following: Price vs Time Saved (in doing Video Work)

- T5750 in Fujitsu A6120, with 3GB RAM ... out of door $833 (have discount)
- T8300 in HP dv6700t, with 3GB RAM ... out of door $1069
- T9300 in HP dv6700t, with 3GB RAM ... out of door $1113

- T5750 crunching a Video of 3250MB in 22 Minutes (actual number).
- T8300 crunching a Video of 3250MB in 17 Minutes (Guessing).
- T9300 crunching a Video of 3250MB in 16 Minutes (Guessing).

Do you folks agree with my analysis of minutes above. Does $236 or $280 extra justify the 5 or 6 minutes time saved in doing home movie rebuilding!?!??

I know I am asking purely an Opinion Question ... but what is you folks take!?!
Also, am I missing any Other Factor in my Decision making?

Thanks,
G!:)

I think the T8XXX and T9XXX are 45 nm chips whereas the T5XXX are 65 nm chips

Hi Muya,

I agree with you 100% ... the T5750 is definitely different category CPU ... but I was wondering if any of this Forum users ahd a 1st hand experience with the T5750 and T8300 and may be even T8100 CPU's in laptop. You know time wise for processing Video stuff.

Thanks,

The T9300would crunch just a lil faster being 2.5 GHz as compared to the the T8100 which is 2.4GHz.

However, the T9300 has more L2 cache...

Hi Muya,

I was reading about that L2 Cache T9300's 6MB vs T8300's 4MB ... and the article was saying 3MB was a good place to be like T8100's ... and anything past that will probably not show a "Significant" increase in performance.

That is why I wanted to see if someone actually has Experienced this 1st hand on a laptop.

Thanks as usual for your feedback & TIME!

Unless you are crunching huge spreadsheets etc, you probably won't see much benefits from the extra L2 cache.

If you are in the hunt for laptop, what would do with it mostly?

Some office work at home etc? Gaming? Or just surf the net? Photoshop?

IF you you state what you are going to do the, perhaps you will get better answers.

If you want to play 3 D games, be sure that the graphics is not cheap integrated video.

Hi Muya,

How are you today ? :D

Obviosuly the chap is into video editing stuff unless i'm mistaken. the T8300 seems to be the best for price/performance.
the extra cache would only make a little difference.

If you are doing video stuff, go with T9300, period.

I am hungover..post match celebrations....I thought he was using the video encoding as an example.


Oh wel,, I nearly bought a Dell Inspiron 1520 today with T9300 and 8600M but, ultimately, I couldn't justify it....so the money is saved up for a 280 GTX! :D

speaking from personal experience, the T8300 is VERY quick.

Hi everyone,

@ Muya, SH, Rich and Bob ... you folks hit it on the head ... my MAIN purpose of buying a new laptop is so I can mess around with DVDs and Video encoding and re-encoding ... so that is why I was trying to compare the 3 processors and may be even T8100.

I am in a funny situation that I have some special deals on laptop ... and obviously I am comparing Apples and Oranges ... my Delimma is the $250 to $300 price difference ... would I really see a SIGNIFICANT TIME SAVING ... Faster response

- Fujitsu, A6120, T5750, 3GB RAM, cost $833 (After $150 Rebate)
- HP dv6700t, T9300, 3GB RAM, nVidia 8400GS (so this adds $50), cost $1178
- HP dv6700t, T8300, 3GB RAM, nVidia 8400GS, cost $1114
- HP dv6700t, T8100, 3GB RAM, nVidia 8400GS, cost $1072

As you can see hte 3 HP's are within $50 of each other for different processors so ...

Where I can't make up my mind ... would I be as happy with the T5750 Fujitsu for $240 less than the T8100 and ... so forth.

Some folks say go with Fujitsu for now and 2 to 3 years later get the T9300 or whatever for lot less money and may be newer Technology.

I realize this is more of a Personal decision ... but if you folks can give me some feedback would appreciate it.

BTW, can you guys telll me from persoanl experience which hard drive would you pick (SPEED is my concern again) ... 250GB 5400RPM or 200GB 7200RPM?

Thanks,

G!:)

Don't the 45nm chips have SSE4 which is supposed to help in video crunching?

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/intel-wolfdale_8.html

Comparing the E6850 to the E8400 (which are both 3.0Ghz, 1333Mhz FSB) it looks like the 45nm chip runs about 5-10% faster than 65nm clock for clock. Not sure if any of these benchies are taking advantage of SSE4 or not...

As for the hardrive, the 7200rpm will generally be faster.

The 7200RPM no question about that!

as for the deals , i'll go with the newer technology even if slighty more expensive .. afterall you are not going to change/upgrade your laptop for a while!

Hi folks,

THANKS as usual for your inputs & help ...

@ Harnagel ... LOVE your Avatar ... hey Harn ... the specs that you are giving me were for desktop ... BTW, the website in your URL is a "Cool" site ... thanks for sharing that with me.

@ SH64 ... YOU are right ... I just blew $50 on some crap that I did not even need ... so I will take your advice go with the T9300 ... the laptop that I am looking at does not offer 7200RPM ... so I will either get the 250GB or 320GB - which I keep reading due to Higher Density platters do as good as the 7200's.

Thanks,

G!:)
