If I buy a 3ghz CPU with Dual core or quad core
is that 3ghz process power devided between cores ? or multiplied by cores?
Would a quad core 3ghz chip be like running 4 x 3ghz chips
and a dual core be like running 2x 3ghz chips?
or is it a total of 3ghz split between the 2 and 4 cores ?
Im just trying to get a realitive power difference between dual core and quad core.
Im pretty sure its just a single ghz devided into the cores, 3ghz total, no matter how many cores. but i figured id ask in case I was wrong.
I own gta4 on a dual core 2.7ghz CPU and it runs pathetically, I may never buy rockstar crap again because of it.
Wasnt sure just how important upgrading to x4 over this x2 I have, or if i should just get a x2.
or should I stop what im thinking and go with Quad core no matter what?
A dual core 3.0 ghz would be stronger than a 2.8 ghz quad core right? ASRock > Products > N61P-S
sorry about multi posts. Im running this mother board. ASRock > Products > N61P-S > CPU Support List
and this is the list of CPUs it can run with.
Im trying to decide between higher GHZ or quad cores.
Also, im not sure which bios version im running yet, it looks like id have to flash the bios before some of these chips work maybe.
