Core Duo/Core 2 Duo processors
So a recent discussion has made me wonder about my previous thoughts.
I've been under the impression that if you're going to be running multiple programs at once, a multi core processor is desireable.
Recently I had someone mention that they believed that the benefits of dual core processors won't be noticed unless you're running 64bit programs or Vista and the like.
So which is it? Getting into the technicalslike this I'm not very well versed on what each processor type does well, etc.
