I have an I have a quadcore processor and when I checked it shows that it has 1.5 ghz each and I'm playing a game that requires 2.66 Ghz will I have a problem regarding performance or can it work at the same time and use 3 ghz for one running game?


Not really important:

also does that mean that it has a total of 6 Ghz? This has been bothering me for a while, I'm sorry if this might sound... dumb or something. I'd hate to buy a game and find out my computer can't run it. I read that a quad core was good for multitasking and a dual was better for gaming but in my case is this true? I'm really confused with all these information I've dug up just to see if I can play a game and I'm not quite sure what's going on anymore @[email protected]

I didn't buy the laptop for gaming so I didn't consider some important things when I bought it. Thankfully, when I started venturing into gaming it seems that it met almost all of the requirements, except for graphics. I have intel 5000 and Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. Sadly, they don't seem to like each other so I can't play the blasted game.  I've been told that there was a patch (I think) that was made so that intel users can play AC but I'm not sure. I don't understand why I can play Skyrim V and have smooth game-play and I can't even start AC IV (it's already installed)
