Default Dual questions

Question 1:
On a dual core processor (like the AMD Athlon 64 FX) it runs a 3 Ghz.
Is that per core or for the entire processor?

I was looking at getting 2 processors. Mainly what is stated above, is there any way to use both processors. I seen a drawing for a quad core platform, and it looked really interesting.
Heres a link of what im talking about:

let me know if it doesnt work

Most of the time, it usually is per core, but I can't find it on that page. Most dual core speeds are per core, so I don't think there is a problem there

so if that dual processor is 3 Ghz per core
then the actual speed of the whole processor is 6 Ghz........ right?

that's actually not right. total core speeds don't affect the average processor speed. i have a pentium d 945 dual core at 3.0 ghz clock each core... well... its 3ghz.. nothing special with speeds...

so why dont we see the processors getting very far in terms of power?
is there some kind of restriction that i dont see?

Why not get a quad core instead of that AMD?

price of the quad will be dropping by the end of the month. Also, right now isn't the best time to try AMD. Intel's core 2 family is beating AMDs in almost every category.
