    No each core 2.5ghz

    if that happened the octocore phones will be as fast as the speed of light

    Nahhh the snapdragon quad core chip bet the mtek octa core chips almost no apps are builts for octa core chipsand more cpus doesn't necessarily mean better performance some dual core computer ships outperform quad core smartphone chips

    i know that but im trying to say something way different

    what is better 4 brains or 2?

    2 if you can't fully use all 4.

    Would you prefer 2 workers getting a job done every 1.7 seconds or 4 workers getting something done every 1.2 seconds? That's the basic principle. Just add complex tech.

    Nobody can accurately answer the question you asked.

    Clock speed and number of cores will only give you an idea of performance compared to processors from a similar generation, manufacturer, and architecture... But even then, the cache can make a difference.

    A modern dual core Intel is far faster than a quad core Intel from a few generations ago. A 2.0ghz AMD may not perform as well as a 2.0ghz Intel from the same generation...

    Basically, to get an accurate answer you need to list the exact processors that are being compared, and it can still vary depending on what you mean by "better."

    Hi folk, probably you have got it but from my opinion you hadn't... just take as example that there are two phones one is clocked at 1.2 ghz quad core speed and the other one is ticking at 1.7 ghz dual core speed the te performance equation would be like this:-
    the first phone-1.2 multiplied with 4 (since its QUAD core) gives product- 4.8 ghz
    the second one-1.7 multiplied by 2 (since its DUAL core) gives product- 3.4 ghz
    which speed is greater Hmmm???
    I always use this method to buy devices and its an useful one, trust me my friend !!!!

    So that means the AMD 8-core on 4 GHz processors are faster then the Intel i7 4-core 3 GHz processors?

    U can try them out side by side u will see the I7 could be faster in some cases, this is just not how it works. :)
    Each CPU is different, the amount of GHz do not always say everything.
    U cannot trust this "Method" in most cases, as example in this case.
    Edit: here is a example http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-4770K-vs-AMD-FX-9590, maybe not the best example but i hope u get a better feel for it.
