How many processors do I have?
DxDiag says that I have a "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz (2 CPUs)"

I want to know what this means, do I have two processors? Each at 1.86?

What's going on in there?

You have one processor with two cores. Nothing fishy. Just technology.

Think of it as two processors combined into one chip. You have 2 Cores running at 1.86GHz each.

No, you have 2 cores running at 1.86 each. They each work on a separate instruction simultaneously. 2 cores at 1.86 GHz doesn't equal 1 core at 3.72 GHz. You can't add clock speeds
