    Intel i3-540 processor speed?


      Hi all,


      I'm considering a new CPU but need a confirmation first.


      I'm interested in Intel Core i3-540 which has a processor speed of 3.06 Ghz. My question is this: does the 3.06Ghz refers to the processor speed of two cores put together (i.e. 1.53Ghz for each core)  - or does the 3.06Ghz refers to each core, giving a combined total of 6.12Ghz?


      Sorry if this sounds like a silly question but it's very important that I get this one right.


      Thanks very much
