Ok obviously I don't understand this very well.
Say you have a dual core 2.4 ghz CPU. That means you have 2x2.4 cores working together for a total of 4.8?
I'm not trying to argue or be a smartass I just want to know.
I was always under the impression that a 2.4ghz dual core would have 2 cores running at 1.2ghz...and the efficiency/speed came from division of processes/tasks?
