DaveJoBot, did you notice you're replying to a topic from 12 years ago?
And, incidentally, having two cores doesn't really mean one for Windows and one for other stuff, it doesn't quite work like that.

The determining factor for me is the OS structure. That's to say, how well did the programmer understand the process calls and construct the OS to take maximum advantage. This gives faster operation but does not always fit within the quicker routines for gaming. BIOS has the final say as some parameters can be set to take advantage of certain operations used in specific software programs like image and video rendering.
