Ahhh that makes sense now. I knew the c2d was based off the Pentium M, but didnt realise the M was based off the P3... I should read more...

and the Athlon 64 x2 is based on the Athlon 64 which is based on the K7 Opteron which is based on the Athlon XP. Strange how the companies continue their old architures instead of making a whole new one.

and the design process of Kentsfield exacally the same as the Pentium D, two conroes bolted together. nothing wrong with it really but yea :/

Actually pentium D is a P4EE with locked multipliers, and Hyper Threading disabled. So if you have a P4EE you see four cores in task manager.

so does that mean the pentium 4 was a step back rofl

also for all we know the penryns maybe a huge improvement, i mean, the Core 2 Duo was a 30% faster with less power consumption than a Pentium D

Im sorry dude but your flat out wrong with saying no games use quad core. Supreme Commander utilizes 4 cores, just search it on youtube... this guys gets all 4 of the cores up to like 75% workload on a huge map in Supreme Commander... thats crazy lol
