Default Re: true quad core processing

Not being picky, just trying to point out the difference. A lot of people seem to think that 2 dual cores on 1 die is not a true quad core. IF it has 4 cores on 1 die, its a true quad core.

True != native when speaking of quadcores.

yeah that's what i meant to say, but true and native are the same thing. No one really decides what is the "propper" name for it. As long as people understand what you're talking about when you tell them.

True - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Native & - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yes there is a difference between a true quad core and a native quad core.
