Single threaded app on i7 2600k

I have an i7 2600 k processor and an app that is unfortunately 32 bit single threaded   Is there a way I can have vmware combine the cores into one really fast core such as 3.4 ghz x 4 so the software thinks it is running with a 13.6 ghz cpu

Not that I've ever heard of, particularly because it wouldn't work like you're expecting.  Multi core processors are not running at 13.6 ghz and dividing it up by 4 (which is what hyperthreading used to be). But instead, are 4 processors running at the same speed (potentially variable speeds using dynamic throttling).

So basically if you could get VMware to merge multiple processors, which I dont believe you can, it still would only run at the original clock speed and not see any performance gains.
