    Dude, let me set you straight in case you're wondering why people posted comments like:

    "ok, bye"

    Conroe is a dual core CPU. Period.

    Once you buy Conroe you will had made the transistion to dual core.

    Benchmarks takes advantage of both cores as long as the operating system supports it.

    Windows XP Home does not support dual core (to the best of my knowledge). Windows XP Pro does support dual core.

    Click here and go down to the 3rd post for benchmarks. Messege #153.
  4. Say what? Oh yeah, bye.
  5. Later?
    Peace Out?
    Ciao?
  6. You really who you say you are?
  7. As far as i know intel will release two versions of conroe - core 2 duo (dual core) and core 2 solo(single core).
    I think that the difference between dual and single core lies in the applications used. For example , audio/video encoding , future games may take the advantage of dual cores. However , word processing applications , as well as web browsing , will probably not.

    XP Home supports 1 physical processor with Hyperthreading and/or Dual Core processors.
    XP Pro supports up to 2 physical processors with Hyperthreading and/or Dual Core processors.

    Hyperthreading and Dual Core are supported in XP Home because the operating system sees them as virtual CPUs.

    After a quick search Core 2 Solo's unofficial code name is Conroe-L.
