    Will Leopard run FASTER on C2D then CD?
    Hi all,
    Since Leopard is 64-bit, how much of a difference in performance will there be between running it on a Core Duo and Core 2 Duo machines? I understand that the 4Mb L2 Cache will make it a little faster on the C2D but will the fact that Leopard is designed in 64-bit cause a dramatic difference in speed?

    I have been scouring the web for an hour or so trying to find a satisfactory answer. I have seen articles stating that there is anywhere between a 7% and 39% increase in speed between CD and C2D, but I am asking the question specifically with regard to Leopard.

    You won't be able to get any definitive answer until the final release of Leopard hits the stores.

    are the CD's capable of 64-bit? Sorry, that's probably a really noob question, but I don't know.

    No they are not, the Core Duos are 32bit, and the Core 2 Duos are 64bit.
