I haven't been able to find any solid facts about this...If you have a dual core cpu rated at 2.6ghz is that two cores at 2.6ghz each or two cores at
1.3ghz? Some people say either way, but what is the fact?

if the dual-core processor is rated at 2.6ghz, it means both cores run at that speed. theres a program called CPU-Z that you can google and it shows the speeds of both cores. My dual core AMD X2 3800+ runs at 2.0ghz at default. In CPU-Z, while my speeds are at stock, both cores were running at 2000mhz(=2.0ghz)
