So I've always wondered about dual core processors. If you get an intel core 2 duo cpu, 2.5Ghz, does that mean you get twice the clock speed, so you're getting 5Ghz clock speed?

depends if the app takes advantage if it. E,g apps which were made before Core Duo will only see one crummy 2.5ghz cpu but if there are designed to take advantage if it then there is huge increase in performance compared to a standard cpu

I was just reading in wikipedia, it says some apps run better on a 3ghz single core than on a 2ghz dual core because it can't use both cores at the same time, or it doesn't konw how to do it. So let me ask you this: can you dedicate one core to photoshop and the other one to dreamweaver?
