I feel like giving a little speech about my personal opinion about CPU's while im at it.

When people are saying that its because it connects all the other chips together and permits data to go where it should... isnt that a northbridge?

And dual socket motherboards, technically its still "ONE" CPU. because the CPU means the processing unit. those 8 or however many cores you have are the only things that process the data. (lets make it simple here. no gfx, sound cards, etc.) The only difference between the two is that for where there is only one socket. the data passes inside that only CPU and uses interconnect to transfer the data around inside. With dual sockets, they pass through the northbridge if they need to go to the 2nd socket. (HT has direct connect. yes yes AMD fans and to-be nehalem fans. i didnt forget about you )
Zip it pal, I just don't feel like arguing!

The whole chip is a unit... There might be multiple cores, but the chip itself is one unit, and therefore it is the central unit of processing.

Cmon.
What is the point?
Its a cpu.
Call it whatever you want if it makes you feel better.
Heck give it a name and get it a ssn.

Zip it? (makes me think of the first post in the thread)

I wasnt arguing... i was just telling you were you were wrong... all my statements were backed up with points... If you still think that there is still something that should be answered... why dont you say it?

But again, even if there are multiple sockets, it's still the unit where all of the processing is performed. I'm saying that multiple sockets can collectively be called the CPU.

Perfectly true. Like i said before. The only difference is that instead of interconnect communications, it uses the northbridge to "talk" to the other cores or (Nehalem's direct connection or w/e AMD uses atm)

well one way... are you saying that i can "swear" to people but if i use a smily face its all good?
and the other... maybe this whole thread along with a certain mod removing my avatar for questionable reasons along with death-related problems and other family issues makes me pretty easy to iritate atm...
