Since they share units, all 4 modules should be able to be utiized in a 4 threaded app.

closer to 1.5 "cores" per module than 2

You really cannot compare it to anything on the market right now.


(the above could be backwards, but you get the idea, they share one unit, and dont share another.)

Yea only 2 or 3 cores, because the game says "Hey, i'm only using 2 of your CPU cores man!"

I mean if you look at the X2 athlon and X4, you can see a clear difference in performance. I guess my point was its one of the games that takes advantage of a good CPU and GPU at the same time (while on the highest quality settings, since most test with medium or low to show the CPU "bottleneck" )
