The processors based on dual-core can be named as the next generation in computing. Combining Intel® Pentium® processor Extreme Edition with Intel® 955X Express Chipset that supports Hyper-Threading (HT), a user has now a possibility to solve most of the needs, when having many tasks at his PC at once .
The Intel dual-core processors are the first to transmit high volume information across platform families, including clients, servers and communications systems. This feature allows a user to operate the computer simultaneously as a multimedia entertainment tool, great gaming tool, and it guarantees you a powerful performance for audio, video and digital design. All this becomes only possible, because the dual-core uses two complete execution cores instead of one. Each of the execution cores utilizes an independent interface. The memory provided for every independent core is one MB. It gives you a possibility to accomplish performance-intensive tasks. Hyper-Threading Technology consisting of four threads that is also combined with the processor extreme edition allows to increase realism of the games you play, listening to music, creating some powerful design projects and other programs, and you can also run an AD Aware or Kaspersky programs at the same time.
It is an interesting proposition to most of the gamers and business people, is not it? Businesspersons have a chance to handle in a better way complex, simultaneous transactions and escalating workloads. All this is possible due to the new technology that will probably be not the last in PC evolution. The performance of all the mentioned above programs, certainly, depends and varies according to the specific hardware and software usage. Optimized platforms, operating systems and applications, your software licensing, business and IT strategies are even of more importance than the dual core strategy; however, this new technology helps the processing.
Moreover, the Intel Company allows using this technology only with its licensed equipment. High-performance Intel 955X Express Chipset complemented to dual core processors, Intel® Virtualization Technology, Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel® I/OAT), Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT), and Intel Power Tools can guarantee a wide range of additional benefits.
The Intel Company is planning to increase the number of cores in future processors' designs. Now It has already 15 models across all platform categories. In a few years, probably, we will see lower costs, better quality and faster PC's. Hopefully, other processor producers will also begin the production of PC's using this kind of dual core processing or invent something new, because the progress dictates - whether you go on and win or someone goes on leaving you behind.
