A program that is multi-threaded is multi-threaded. They don't code dual core program, or quad core programs. They code multi-core programs. That means the processor could be 256 core and it would still be utilized by the multi-core program.

And yes, generally twice the cores will result in twice the performance of a multi-threaded application.



I am not sure what game we are playing?

Penryn is not just a simple die shrink:

Again, from what I understand, AMD was demo'ing the performance per watt. As you'll see here in the link, Intel's own dual cores and quad cores beat out it's own v8 system in a lot of benchmarks.

Your idea that multithreaded=fully utilizing all the cores, and that 2x the cores=2x the performance is severely flawed.
