i need to know

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
tell me if i'm wrong but, the way i understand it is that the C2D has 2 cores and your pc recognizes it as 2 processors. Say i bought the E6420 (runs at 2.13 ghz i believe) is there a way to "combine" the cores into one which will result in a 4.26 ghz processor?

Nope.

Each core will run at 2.13GHz.

if you go into "device manager" will there be 2 processors listed?

no

thats called maketing saying 4.26 ghz

Now if you had two PHYSICAL processors that would be different.

EDIT: yes they are listed because the P.C. sees two cores that can be used for processing.

But the speed doesn't add up

Because even though they don't add up like you were thinking, they still are the fastest processors out...for the time being.
