Oh geeze....

It is a quad core processor, but quad-core support is a function of the motherboard and software, (and it's guaranteed that if the motherboard supports the Core 2 Duo, it is designed for a multi-core apps). They're talking about games currently. Very few support multi-core processors, but they are slowly leaking onto the market. Supreme Commander is one of those titles that supports multi-core processors.
