    Upgrading a processor

    dragonuv

      Hi,

      There is something unclear to me about processors.

      Right now I have a Core 2 Duo e6600 which has 2 cores at 2.4 ghz. What if I decide to buy a i5-750S, which has 4 cores at 2.4 ghz, will my computer run twice as fast?

      and what does number of threads mean?

       

      If someone could explain me the concept of measuring CPUs by speed I would be grateful.

       

      Thanks!
