FINAL RESULT

COMMENT - "This review was about showing if there was an advantage for using a Quad Core CPU over a Dual Core CPU using a mixture of benchmarks from Synthetic to real Games. Both AMD Athlon II x2 255 and AMD Athlon II x4 645 are both clocked at 3100Mhz so there is no Clock Speed advantage. AMD Athlon II X4 645 finished between 9% to 50% faster than AMD Athlon II X2 255 when using general computer use. AMD Athlon II X4 645 finished between 23% to 32% faster than AMD Athlon II X2 255 when using games use. Dual Core is fine for average computer use but if you use the latest games then Quad Core is the way to go."
