Guru3D: "Over the past year or two the buzz-word has been quad-core processors. The one thing though that we keep forgetting is that the most value is to be found in dual-core processors. The reality is that with normal everyday usage and gaming, a dual-core processor is really all you need.
In the years to come multi-core gaming will get bigger and bigger, yet remains a slow process. The momentum for multi-core processors, especially four cores, is slowly becoming standard. But what if you take a Phenom X4 processor, chop it in half and start working with such a processor?"
