Not really. You get two processors in one to merely compress two processors into one. If you compress two HT Processors into one you get two HT Processors, pushing out the same capabilities as two normal ones. Putting two Processors on one Chip changes the processors in no way; its the Coding for the Processors and the Software Available for it which has kept the Dual Cores back and HT down.
Obviously I simplify the process; but in its basicness that is what happens. Controlling the Processors is what's not easy.
No comment about the Toledo being released before the VIIV?
Giancarlo doesn't even think the VIIV will be released this year.
