When someone says eight core 1.75ghz

is that to say they are using 10ghz?


No, it's parallel computing. Think of it like this: you have eight horses and each can gallop at the same speed. They can't magically combine into one large horse that can run eight times faster.


Car analogies have been replaced by their predecessor, horse analogies.

Good man.
