Pentium III processors are not and never have been dual-core. Dual-core is two brains on one processor, dual-processor is two physical processors. They are not the same thing and only the first processor will be seen and used under XP Home anyway.
Performance wise it'll still suck compared to current processors, though file-sharing wise it'll be adequate anyway.
uummm what?? YES I already agreed its not a TRUE dual core BUT dual means 2 just bc they are seperate doesnt mean its not a dual core.
I'm not going to get drawn into an argument with you because I'm above that, suffice to say your set-up is not dual core in any way, shape or form, it is dual-processor. If you had a true dual-core system with two processors you'd be seeing four processors in that list, not two.
Second ur wrong about XP not seeing the processor...
XP Pro sees two physical processors with no problem. You're running XP Pro. I said XP Home wouldn't see it, but XP Home will work on dual-core processors. Please read my post again.
Notice how it says a DUAL-CORE processor contains TWO cores. IE=2 processors...LOL
Wiki is not gospel, anybody can edit it to put facts in. And your quote from Wiki completely blows your interpretation of your set-up out of the water.
