    It's a dual core, so if the program can only use one core that's half of the potential power of the cpu.

    only something written to effective use more than one core will actually run then properly.. i am actually running with one of my cores switched off at the moment just to try and spot the real life general usage gain from multi cores..

    so far i can honestly say i dont see any... he he he

    running a double blind test would show some interesting results..
