Hi,
I have read the wikipedia pages on multi core/dual core/core 2 duo concept.
But its still a littleunclear. Can someone please point me to a white paper or link on multi core concept. It is really two capable processors on one chip or is it capability subject to application design.
Regards
Kiran

How about this reference then recheck wikipedia? Dual core processors have 2 separate processors which share cache and memory buss. Generally, applications can be developed toadapt automatically toanycombination ofmultiple CPUsand multi-core on one motherboard.
