That was a great explanation Frag that cleared up some questions i had about dual cores.

:topic: What I don't get is that Intel are doing 3.4Ghz but AMD haven't got passed the 3.0Ghz yet?

Scary! Long Live AMD!?

Frag that was brilliant! Now I know I made the right choice and saved money

Time for another brilliant Frag speach I suppose

Prior to Core 2 and the newer mobile Pentiums from Intel, they all ran with lower operation counts per clock cycle. AMD processors on the other hand run at higher operations per clock cycle. This means that AMD proccies can run at lower clock speeds and still complete just as many operations as a Pentium running at a higher clock speed. This has changed for Intel with the new Core 2's however. I haven't checked the exact specs on the operations per clock cycle on them but I think that it's even higher than the Athlon 64's, thus the drastic clock speed reduction from Pentium to Core. Efficiency at its best

I would have to agree with the statement that older intels were made from old stale biscuits, rofl. Ok back on topic folks.

Tox are you going to overclock your dual core? Im thinking about doing it to mine, do both cores work hard when your playing games? or does one go to sleep while the other slaves away?
