about dual core cpu's
#1
when my computer properties says something like

pentium dual core e5300 @ 2.6ghz does it mean i have 5.2ghz of cpu speed


like 2.6ghz @ 2 cpus =5.2ghz

or

2.6ghz is the result of the dual core?

just asking

If quad core CPU's had 10 GHz i would surely buy one, haha Laugh


Its the result, GHz doesnt stack with the number of cores in your computer.

Well, I'm gonna say it's depends on the program you're running on it. Only I don't think you'd necessarily have 5.2Ghz of processing speed, but the ability to run two threads at 2.6Ghz (or maybe less).

The 2.6Ghz is each core's speed, but that doesn't mean it's always double. One way I've seen an example of this is at systemrequirementslab.com. If you run a test on, say, Far Cry 2, you should get a "rating" of your combined CPU speeds. Now, this isn't necessarily a very accurate rating (probably heavily based on the game itself), but it shows an example. Most times it seems to be less than doubled, and even less on a P4 HT.

I'm not 100% on all the details, but there's my thoughts. Oh, and again, "Can You Run It?" is NOT very accurate. Try not to "go by it".

BTW My Core 2 Duo 2.8Ghz rates at 4.8825Ghz and my P4 HT 3.0Ghz was like 4.3 something Ghz.

I'd have 22.38GHZ if that were true...
Dual core 2.6ghz meens it can do 2 threads at 2.6ghz each.
