You mean 9550's are still 2+2? hmmm...I didnt know that.
the Core2 quads aren't 2 cores plus hyper threading. i don't know where you got that information from or if you are just intentionally trying to mislead someone who doesn't know better. the reason so many rabid fanbois cry about the Core2 quads isnt the misconception your peddling. it is because it is two dual cores linked and sharing the same bus rather than four individual cores. feel free to research it. i wouldn't mislead the misled.
