Can you be more specific, as in which specific CPUs you are talking about.

The main difference here is obviously that I7 has 4 physical cores and the other thing whatever it is - only 2.

ok you have a cpu.. ok thats a single core then you have dual cores thats 2 then you have tri cores thats 3 then you have quad thats 4 cores but not all chips have a actual 4 cores it may be threads but for the most part a quad core is almost certain to be faster then a dual core.
intel dual cores are going to be slower then intel quad or same as amd dual cores are going to do less work then amd quad cores. Hope this helps
