I am currently running FSX with a Core2 DUO 3.0Ghz 4mb cache cpu.
I am considering upgrading to a Core2 QUAD 2.83Ghz 12mb cache HOWEVER I have read that FSX cannot utilise the extra 2 cores of the QUAD cpu.
The extra onboard cache should have an effect but I do not want to spend say $180 and only get a small increase in frame rates.
Does anyone know for sure that FSX will run noticably faster with a QUAD rather than a DUO Core2 CPU?
Also would an increase in onboard cache have a noticable increase in frame rates?
