My 1st pc is Pentium D 820 which is Dual Core . It has 512 KB DDR Ram (PC3200) & speed of CPU is 200Mhz x 14= 2.8 GHz . When I ran Everest Ultimate Edition on my P.C. , it gives the following information :

CPU Physical Info :
Package Type = 775 Contact LGA
Process Technology = 7M , 90 nm , CMOS , Cu , Low-K Inter-Layer , High-K Gate ,Strained Si
Core Voltage = 1.3 V
I/O Voltage = 1.3 V
Typical Power = 95 W @ 2.8 GHz
Maximum Power = 130 W @ 2.8 GHz

MotherBoard Info :

MotherBoard Name = MSI865GVM3-V ((MS-7101)
FSB Properties:
Bus Width = 64 bits
Real Clock = 200 Mhz (QDR)
Effective Clock = 800 Megahertz
Bandwidth = 6400 MB/s

Memory Bus Properties :
Bus Width = 64 bits
DRam:FSB Ratio = 1
Real Clock = 200 Mhz (DDR)
Effective Clock = 400 Megahertz
Bandwidth = 3200 MB/s

Chipset Bus Properties :
Bus Width = 8 bits
Real Clock = 67 Mhz (QDR)
Effective Clock = 267 Megahertz
Bandwidth = 267 MB/s


The 2nd P.C. is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ (Dual Core) . It has 2 GB of DDR2 Memory (PC26400) & speed of CPU is 200Mhz x 13.5 = 2.7 GHz . For the Second P.C. ,Details are as following :

CPU PhysicalInfo :

Package Type = 940 Pin uOPGA
Process Technology = 10Mi , 65 nm CMOS , Cu , DSL SOI
Core Voltage = 1.1 - 1.35 V
I/O Voltage = 1.2 V - 2.5 V
maximum Power = 65 - 76 Watts

MotherBoardName = Asus M2N68-AM SE2

FSB Properties:
Bus Type = AMD Hammer
Real Clock = 200 Mhz
Effective Clock = 200 Megahertz
HyperTransport Clock = [Trial Version ]

Memory Bus Properties :

Bus Type = DDR2 SDRam
Bus Width = 64 bits
DRam:FSB Ratio = CPU/7
Real Clock = 387 Mhz (DDR)
Effective Clock = 775 Megahertz
Bandwidth = [Trial Version ]

MotherBoard Physical Info :
CPU Sockets/slots = 1 Socket AM2+
Expansion Slots = [Trial Version ]
RAM Slots = 2 DDR2 RAM
Integrated Devices = Audio , Video , Lan
Form Factor = Micro ATX
MotherBoard Chipset = nForce7025-630a
MotherBoard Manufacturer = ASUSTek Computer Inc.

1) Are there any Bottlenecks (for speed , performance , etc ) on any of these P.C.s ? If there is any more info you need , I'd be happy to give .

2) What is the maximum physical memory that can be put on each of these p.c.s ?

3) Also , since both CPUs are x86-64 machines but since my windows is 32 bit (Windows XP Professional SP2) , aren't these machines being under-utilized ? (Although I can understand , 64-bit windows isn't very popular since getting drivers for programs can become a problem ) .

4) Upon running CPU-Z , Core Voltage shown on the Intel P.C. is 1.33 Volts as against 1.39 volts for the AMD machine . However RAM Voltage is 2.5 for Intel vs 1.8 for the AMD machine . Which machine must be consuming more power ?

5) Nero System Info says there is AWRDACPI on the machines . If ACPI is installed , why am I not given any option by Windows whereby I can make settings for Windows to automatically shut down the Printer if the Printer or Scanner is idle for say n number of minutes ?

1. What is a bottleneck on a PC?

A bottleneck on a PC refers to a hardware component or software process that is limiting the overall performance of the computer. It can cause slow processing speeds and reduce the efficiency of the system.

2. How can I identify if my PC has a bottleneck?

One way to identify a bottleneck on your PC is to monitor the performance of your system. This can be done through task manager or using third-party software. Look for any significant spikes or consistently high usage in CPU, RAM, or disk activity.

3. What are the common causes of bottlenecks on a PC?

Some common causes of bottlenecks on a PC include outdated hardware, insufficient RAM, and heavy usage of CPU or disk resources. Other factors can include software conflicts, malware, and insufficient cooling leading to overheating.

4. How can I fix a bottleneck on my PC?

The solution for fixing a bottleneck on your PC will depend on the specific cause. Some possible solutions include upgrading hardware components, closing unnecessary programs and processes, running a malware scan, and ensuring proper cooling for your system. It is best to consult a professional if you are unsure of how to address the bottleneck.

5. Can a bottleneck on my PC cause permanent damage?

No, a bottleneck on your PC will not cause permanent damage. However, if left unaddressed, it can lead to decreased performance and potentially shorten the lifespan of your hardware components. It is important to address bottlenecks to maintain the efficiency and longevity of your PC.
