?- dual core cpus and voltage regulation

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
ok so you have 2 cores using the same voltage- now do these have say 2 channels to recieve voltage from or do they split the same voltage up between the two cores, how do they keep one core from using more power and robbing the other core of power

and another one (im a mechanic by trade so bear with my electrical theory lack of knowledge) if you have 2 cores why dont you have twice the vcore- since they are essentially the same as the single cores just 2 fo them together so why wouldnt you need say like 3.0vcore instead of 1.5vcore

any info much appreciated

They cores could be wired (for power, not data) in parallel. That would also explain the voltage not adding. But this is just a guess, based on nothing.
