 Dual-Core Opterons Running Linux

"Dual-core CPUs are single physical processors that contain multiple processor cores. This means that, in theory, for the motherboard space of a single processor, you get the performance of dual processors. What this equates to in terms of performance will vary depending on how you use your computer and which applications you run. Let's start this off by showing you the two ways that AMD and Intel implement their current workstation/server processors and how the processors speak to the rest of the system."
