Hello

I assume that Dual Core cpus are better because the idea is that there are two sub cores, providing extra power, but is this truly the case? What makes them faster?

Do they (dual core cpus) require DDR2? Are the bus speeds of Dual core therefore higher?

Heres Intels take on speed differences between the old pentium 4, the pentium D, and the Core 2 Duo.

Personaly i have worked with a Core2 Duo computer and while it is better to me it is only slightly faster than the pentium D. Perhaps i am the bottleneck in its performance now( the operator). Yes, the newer processors need the newest motherboards and they all seem to be setup for DDR2-533 memory and higher although there are a few boards that can use DDR400 memory.

A new development seems to be SLI, where you can effectively have two graphics board, so in effect two proc and two graphics. Interesting
