Mobile Gaming: Dual- Vs. Quad-Core Processors

When it comes to mobile processors, you have options – many options, in fact. If you're unfamiliar with your choices, or simply don't know what you need, it can be a bit overwhelming.

The assumption is that the quad core processor will always be the better bet, but that isn't necessarily the case. And this is because a dual core processor can be had with a faster “clocking” speed than a quad-core counterpart; additionally, many programs and applications aren't designed to make use of multiple cores, so that extra processing power isn't being put to use.
