Solved CPU questions QUAD vs. Dual Tags: Core Laptops Last response: October 28, 2010 4:38 PM in Laptop Tech Support Share pmiriani October 21, 2010 5:00:29 PM I'm considering getting a machine to run a game (DC Universe Online) with the following minimum system requirement: 2.4 Ghz Dual-Core Most of the laptops I see advertised are i7 QUAD core, with a core speed around 1.7 Ghz. Would the i7 be okay for this game or would i need to find either 1) a quad-core processor with a core speed of >2.4 Ghz or 2) a dual-core processor with a core speed of >2.4 Ghz? I've gotten mixed information on this so far, so I thought I'd bring it up here. Thanks in advance for your response.
