Indeed, the 3600+ OCs like a beast. Hell, most Brisbanes OC quite well. Threw mine up to 2.5 with about as much trouble as it is opening the BIOs...(aka:none)

'bout time.

Most games are not dual core enabled atm. So...it uses only one of it's cores which is 1.9ghz which is compared to a 3ghz cpu! If the game is dual core friendly the dual core would destroy it!

but general pc usage benefits from dual core goodness

When running multiple processes dual core PWNS

A dual core @ 3 ghz > sigle core @ 3ghz

Some things to think about when you're thinking about real world benefits vs. some benchmarks:

- Dual cores allow other processes to run in the background without any slowdown. Firewall, anti-virus, etc.

- Dual cores are the future and more and more games will be dual enabled as well as programs

- Dual cores allow you to be productive immediately when your system is still loading ( pulling up firefox while all your drivers and background programs loadup ). They also allow you to toggle in and out of the game without much wait

- Anything involving encoding will run faster.

I think some games are actually dual core optimized now. I know that Supreme Commander is the only game that has put my CPU load above 50% so far. I have also heard that games like Rainbow Six Vegas, which were developed to utilize XBox 360, which has 3 cores, actually utilize 2 CPU Cores effectively.

Dual core is the present, quad and even 8 or 16 cores are the future
