Hey guys, this is probably a simple question... But I was wondering, would a Dual 500 mhz Powermac be faster than say, an 800 mhz non-dual?

If some could give me an answer and explanation, I'd really appreciate it!
Thanks! :black:

There are a number of factors that affect "speed" but all other things being equal, unless the application was specifically designed to take advantage of the dual-processors, the single 800 would be faster. So basically, don't go advertising that dual 500 that you're selling as being faster than a single 800. :robot:
