Default Dual core via non dual core

Dear All

I have an AMD Athlon 64 x 2, 4400, socket 939. Many users have reported using this CPU with the Asus A8V Deluxe mobo, which claims to not support dual-cores. Is this true, or can the board still run the dual core's at full speed?

That board should run that CPU with no problems what so ever.

All it needs is a BIOS upgrade if its pre X2.
