  This will be my computer after next I am sure, dual core, + dual processors. I wonder what kind of damage I could do with that setup?
My Way News: "SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) is launching its first PC microprocessors with two computing engines on a single chip Tuesday, further expanding its product line with a technology that's expected to be a major driver of PC performance for years to come.

The four chips to be announced Tuesday at the Computex trade show in Taiwan are targeted at high-end personal computers used for advanced tasks such as creating or editing digital media. In April, AMD introduced dual-core chips for servers and workstations.

AMD's announcement of the Athlon 64 X2 comes less than a week after Intel Corp. (INTC) launched its first mainstream dual-core chips, dubbed the Pentium D.

Both companies have been in a tight race to deliver the processors since engineers realized that simply ratcheting up the clock speed of single-core chips was creating too much heat and not producing the same improvements seen in previous models.

It became apparent that performance could be boosted by creating two computing cores and running them at a slower speed on a single chip.

But the technology does have drawbacks. For one, it only benefits users who run several programs at once or have software specially designed to take advantage of the two engines."
