I'm trying to answer a question for a guy interested in upgrading his machine.But since i havent had the chnace to get a Dual Core chip yet i need a little info so hopefully one of you can help me out.
As i understand it a dual core proccessor basically is similar to having a Dual Proccessor system.However heres the question.
Any info on this would be excellent.Have a question, my main use is a music recording program, which is the host. Then within it, I need to open up between another 4-10 programs(usually 3-5)...can I assign each program to one of the 2 processors? And what if the minimum requirements for a certain program happens to be 3.0 GHz for example, Does the chip actually ever run at 4.8 GHz? ..or just 2 running as high as 2.4 ?
I believe each core would run at 2.4GHz if it's a 2.4 GHz dual core chip but will a program use both cores if the minimum requierments is above that speed?Or how exactly does this work?
