Computer Specs Questoin

Hi guys, I was wondering what I'm working with my new laptop. The main question I am wanting to know is if my Intel Core2 Duo is actually 3.2GHz when it says it has two processors. I am using it for a game called, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter and it passes the test the game runs. The only thing is it fails the processor part. The box says I need at least a 2GHz processor. I hope someone can be of help. My specs is below. Thanks in advance.

Microsoft Windows XP
Home Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

Dell Vostro 1500
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU
T5470 @ 1.60GHz
1.60GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM
Physical Address Extension

Sorry, that's a 1.6GHz CPU.

While you have a pair of them, the GHz can't be added up like that.

But I bet the game will run OK if you have a great video card.

Why is that? It sounds better to get a laptop that is straight up 3.2GHz then. I bet they don't make them like that though.

Try more machines.

This is an area that we have to get our feet wet. While you would thing a single faster CPU could be faster it might not be. With dual CPUs one can run the game, the other may do other chores for the OS.
