    Are you sure you have got Cool'n'Quiet disabled? If thats enabled, you may not notice any performance boost...

    Otherwise run something like SuperPi, or run a benchmark like 3D Mark 06, and see if you have a better score than before the upgrade depending on the other components in your rig, you may not see as much of a performace boost as you would have thought

    and check that you have 2 cores in task manager. and if you do, open a load of programs, do an antivirus scan, encode a dvd, play a game all at the same time....hopefully

    Bear in mind that the clock speeds aren't very different between the 2. You probably wouldn't notice the difference without benchmarking. The point of a dual-core isn't usually outright speed, it's the ability to run different tasks and processes somewhat independantly to one another.

    A multi-core aware video encoder and such show the best differences. Not many games benefit at all at the moment.

    my mate has it at the moment he has got a 4000+ and 3dmark03 was even slower. He uses multitasking, so hopefully see an improvemnt.

    Then i'll sell it to him!
