I am thinking of changing my PC in the near future. What is the general thought on Quad core Processors is it worth going down that path, or is it an expense that's not worth considering yet till the price drops.
please dont make assumptions about what people have and have not tried. i have a dual core procesor. im singularly unimpressed. theyre bery little use to the casual (ish) home pc user, imo. they need to be working with the right software, as you point out.
yet nowadays, theyre sold to everyone. now, admittedly, i didnt know about these limitations when i ordered my pc, and was told by the sales person that it would be better than my previous processor. it is not.
and my lack of experience does not negate the various limitations of multi core cpu's, nor the fact that most consumers are unaware of them - which is great for the industry.
