I've got a question regarding the new Core 2 Duo processors. If they are dual core processors why arnt they list as them. At the minute you have the 6420 which is listed as 2.13ghz with a 4mb cache. Is the 2.13ghz the speed of one of the cores or both of them? If it is the speed of one of them why arnt they listed as 4.26ghz instead?

Because it doesnt run at 4.26ghz in normal operation.

The second core is only accessed by software that is made for more than one core. Quoting them as 4.26GHZ would not actually be a lie, but would mean a whole heap of confused people that only saw 2.13Ghz in their system properties.
