I am wrong? That quoted text was taken from a bench test website from someone who knows a lot more than you. Also, Scott Muller seems to agree with how SMP works according to that quoted text. So your saying he is wrong. Scott Muller is the most Authoritive hardware voice in the industry. Go email him and tell him that statement is wrong.
More is not better? Perhaps in the world of debt.. But when we talk about CPU's, being able to do more IPC is always better. I can't help it your acting foolish.
My system process manager could tell you a different story about HAL balance. Your clams are unfounded. Not only do you not have an SMP machine, but you quote text from an irrelevant comparison.
Tom would be incorrect in his analysis of SMP. He's nothing more than a bench tester.. You don't see people quoting him in magazines, you don't see him on Tech-TV. However Scott Muller has been on Tech-TV numerous times.
I never said my system can't be outperformed. I said it could beat a slower less efficient CPU/System. Which happens to be many systems. You are just ticked because you pulled your computer out of a cereal box.
If people want me to leave, that is simple because they would rather not have to hear facts or listen to common sense. They would rather stay in their own little world of misconception. Your the only person here who can't take an arugement.
BTW- If you did your homework on Super_pi, you would realize it doesn't really use Floating Point Integer's to calculate any of it's math. Next time ask me to use a competent bench application.
Now since all your references are from tomshardware, this means you must take any information off of any site and deem it the master answer. Take your own advice and dig around.
I never blocked your PM's... I can't help it you can't find the send PM button.
Buy a book and stop complaining just because you don't know:

Why are you so afraid (blizzard) to just try Super_pi. It is a very popular CPU/Ram benchmark. Its very small and completes in under 1min (on decent systems). I am curious as to what both of your scores would be. I think my best was 41secs on the 1M test.
I did try super_pi, the program stopped responding. I went on the internet to find a newer release. Instead I found about 50 people who use AMD chips saying the program doesn't really use FP calculations, and is therefore irrelevant. My system of course was unaffected by the cheap application. That was by the way written in the mid 90's...
