RAM usage on dual core pentium
Posted on 2006-07-16
This is a curiosity question. I recently bought a 2.8 ghz dual core pentium system with 1 gig or RAM. Is half of the RAM allocated to each core; ie do i really have a system that has effectively 512 meg of RAM or does the processor use all of the RAM regardless of whether one or both cores are processing data.
Or is the truth that most current software does not really use the dual core feature ?
