Topic: Dual Core Question

    Dual Core Question

    OK, this may be a newbie question but I need to know.

    How do dual core systems work? I now have an AMD dual core system and I downloaded the AMD CPU clock that shows your CPU's in action. I noticed both CPU's run in conjunction with each other (both CPU bars move the same). I guess I was under the impression that the second CPU doesn't kick in untill the first one is maxed. I just want to make sure my dual core CPU is in working order.

    This is completely normal.

    It will be next year before we start to see prosumer CPUs that dynamically power-up and power-down the extra cores. Even then, this is purely an energy-saving measure.
