going to buy the E6600 conroe but dont wanna make the transition to dual core rather wait till vista
are conroe benchmarks done one 1 active core or 2 ?
if i decided to run it one 1 core for 32bit xp will there be any performance decrease ?
Dude, let me set you straight in case you're wondering why people posted comments like:
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.
