Just a bit curious :D 
Should a q9650 be 100% faster than an e5700?
Game-debate says Q9650s is 54% faster than e5700
I cannot understand because they have:
-Same clock speed 3.0 Ghz
-Q9650 has 4 cores & threads while e5700 has 2
-12 MB cache and 2 MB cache
-Q9650 runs at 1333 FSB

Here is a different comparison http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/49?vs=94
Not all software can use the extra tech on the Q9650 so depending on test the outcome fluctuates.

Ok, theoretically Q9650 is 100% faster than e5700. However, in reality, the Q9650 is 50% faster than e5700. But that must mean the Q9650 doesn't run as fast as it's supposed to. So what will the other 50% be used for?

It depends on workload, if you can run all 4 cores compared to 2 then it is theoretically 100% faster. If it is running a single threaded application (many such) then the performance gap is much closer since both CPU's handle it with a single core at the same speed.

So in today games, can they run at all 4 cores? And other today applications, such as Sony Vegas, Adobe After Effect,... (Video editing software)?

Games, very few support more cores but expect more. Editing software usually supports more cores so there a quad is much better.
