If the Intel Pentium processors, was not made compatible to programs written for its predecessor, it could have been designed to be a faster processor

I find this question while solving some government job question bank. If someone could provide the answer along with a little explanation it would be very helpful.

Ques:- If the Intel Pentium processors, was not made compatible to programs written for its predecessor, it could have been designed to be a faster processor.

  1. The statement is true
  2. The statement is false
  3. The speed cannot be predicted
  4. Speed has nothing to do with the compatibility

(I did not find any tag as microprocessor or something so i have to keep it under the tag computer architecture, sorry for that, but i did not have sufficient reputation to create a tag.)

Can int16_t be easier on the processor then int?

Ok to be clear I know that the compiler and archature of a processor also have a role to play in this. But this is more of a can it rather then a does it question.

I have already tried to research in to this but all i could find out is that int16_t and int8_t are used for the times where u need a precise size in the length of the data.

But what I want to know is can a int16_t put less strain on say a 80Mhz micro processor and increase proformance then an int or is it most likely just going to preform the same?

Can I run a modern version of Ubuntu on VirtualBox with my Celeron processor?

I am running VirtualBox 6.0.8 under Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS. I have a Intel Celeron N3060 processor which I think may be causing some problems.

I planned to run Ubuntu in the VM. However:

16.04.6 32-bit hangs on installation. 14.04.6 32-bit will not load and eventually is “aborted” by VirtualBox. 12.04.5 32-bit works fine but support ended in April 2017.

I can only assume that my processor is so limited that I need a basic stripped down version of Linux.

Can anyone please suggest an Ubuntu-like OS which is supported by the manufacturer and which will run under my processor in VirtualBox?

Or perhaps there is an alternative way to get Ubuntu running under the VM? Thanks.

Will Ubuntu work in Dual Boot mode on AMD Ryzen 2500U Processor alsong with Windows 10 Home 64 Edition?

I am using Acer Aspire 3 Ryzen 5 Quad Core – (4 GB/1 TB HDD/Windows 10 Home) Laptop (https://www.flipkart.com/acer-aspire-3-ryzen-5-quad-core-4-gb-1-tb-hdd-windows-10-home-a315-41-a315-41g-a315-41-r45r-laptop/p/itmfcfwg7yzqb5sn?affid=hiteshsal1 ) I want to use Ubuntu along with Win 10 Home for Development purpose. Can Ubuntu will work on AMD architecture? Kindly guide me in this.

Why does aptitude give me intel-microcode upgrades when I have an AMD processor?

I have a Supermicro AS-2022G-URF (H8DGU motherboard) with 2 AMD Opteron 6272 16C/16T 2.1GHz and an LSI MegaRAID SAS 2108 RAID controller currently running Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS (scheduled to be upgraded to 16.04 this summer). Several times over the last year, when I have done aptitude update/upgrade, the intel-microcode package has shown up as one of the packages that will be installed. Since this server has AMD processors, not Intell, Why does aptitude offer this package? Is it in any way necessary for other reasons? Any ill effects from going along with aptitude on this?

What does matter in processor for speed?

Few days back, i got to know that this is not necessary that i7 should be better than i5. I was totally shocked. My question is why is i7 is not faster than i5 as my name it means that i7 is faster than i5. As my knowledge i7 processor is having 7 processors and i5 is having 5 processors. In processor, which thing matters the most in the processor.

2009 Mac Pro Processor Change – how to resolve errors?

I have a Mac Pro “Eight Core” 2.26 (2009/Nehalem) that I was running with dual X5690 (3.46GHz/6-core/12MB/130W) processors for the last couple years (yes, I’ve got the 2010 firmware hack on it). Been running fantastic, but I needed to do swap some hardware around and so ended up needing to take these processors out and put some older processors (that were from another actual 2010 Mac Pro; 2.66 GHz 6 Core Xeon X5650 x2).

After the transplant was completed I fired it up and immediately got a light on the right side of CPUA:


I held the power button in and immediately turned it off. This light then lit (“OVTMP CPUA”):

ovtmp cpua

I figured something must be up with the heatsink as it seemed as though the screws for the 2009 heatsinks ratcheted down tightly and immediately instead of having some give that would indicate that it was in contact with the CPU (lidded CPU btw). Made me figure that perhaps the heatsink was not pressing down the CPUA processor enough. I also recalled that the previous processor that was in here may have been SLIGHTLY taller.

I then took the heatsink back off and put about .5 to .75 mm of copper cut to size for the Xeon lid and used thermal paste again to make up for this possible spacing issue. I repeated this for CPUB. The heatsink seemed to ratchet down better this time as I could feel some pressure being applied and the torque didn’t stop immediately as before and thus i could torque it down a bit.

After doing this, I unfortunately found that the same error lights were emitted – no change.

I also went ahead got some additional feedback from the DIAG LED button:

diag led results

I’m not really sure what to do at this point. Should I add thicker copper to make the heatsinks apply greater pressure to these Xeon processors?

I believe Intel has pretty good heat protection for these processors, so I don’t believe the processor would be “burned out” at this point, right?

Further, would resetting the motherboard by removing the battery and / or pressing the reset button beside the battery (above the 1st PCIe slot / behind the GPU) help at all?

Any other ideas aside from buying a new processor?
