So, I'm going to try and ask this as clearly as possible: say I had a phone with a 1ghz dual-core processor. If it's a 1ghz dual core processor, is it 2 1ghz processors in one, or is the processor simply clocked to 1ghz and the dual-core allows for separate caches? Basically, 1ghz dual-core = 2ghz processor? This has been bugging me for a while and I've tried to find out as much as I could. Thanks
I'm pretty sure a 1ghz dual core processor means there are 2 1ghz cores
This is correct : )
