Dual core is effectively 2 processors in 1

So when your system is multi-tasking, a dual-core is more efficent because it can run 2 job stacks where as the other would have 1 job stack twice the size (takes twice as long to work through).

Thats the basic theory behind it.

dual core = two jobs at once

single core = one job at a time


Bottom line, get a 16 core processor = get BSOD quicker. ;)
