I have just done the deed( well my wonderful wife has) and purchased super dooper computer.

I cant quie get the grasp of the processor speed i.e. The old way was rising by GHZ 2.8 -3.0 - 3.2 etc. Now i has gone to dual Proessor, an the speed has dropped. y new processor is 2.4GHZ E6600 Dual Core2. Can anyone explain this new technology?
