Okay, well this is the second thread you've started (that I've seen), thinking that you are posting a reply.

Please stop.

People don't realize that multi-core CPUs don't "stack up". Dual core doesn't give 200% of a single core like simple logic would assume. Example, Oblivion gets around a 15% increase in performance from dual core clocked the same as a single core.

Dual cores and quad cores run independent of each other each running at their own speed and handling their own set of processes so the only real advantage to having 4 cores would be in multi tasking several programs at once like listening to music while playing a game because your waiting for a DVD to burn.

Yeah, it's like rims on a car. You have 4 20" rims. That doesn't mean you have an 80" rim.

"80" rim" thats funny, but your statement is VERY true
