I was looking to buy a new Dual Core CPU, and i noticed intel's:
805 Dual core
Its clock rate is 2.6GHZ, so the web page reads
Would that be 2x2.6ghz?

not really - but kind of - i dunno

Yes most probably because its actually two seperate CPUs sqeezed together on a single chip. but then they usually use a FSB thats not really big. So kind of.

The main point is so that if ou computer is running photoshop along with media player for example - one cpu die can focus on photoshop while the other on media player which improves the performance of both where as older Cpus that werent HT enabled or dual core had to juggle the two making its performance a bit slower.

The real awnser is i dont know - i dont even know why i bothered awnsering - if ive confused you more - im sorry!

Hope this helps
