Question to processor definition in Windows XP Boot.ini Advanced Options
I have an Intel Core 2 Duo processor (not sure the name is 100 percent correct) and would like to know if performance is improved, if I change the number of processors to two in Windows XP boot.ini under Advanced Options > /NUMPROC =.

Thanks for the quick reply. Will it improve performance if I change the number of processors from BLANK to two? I assume the Intel Dual Core 2 processor means I have two processors available?
A dualcoreprocessor is different from a multi-processor system. In the multi-processor
system there are two separate CPUs with their own resources. In the dualcoreprocessor, resources are shared and the cores reside on the same chip. A multi-processor system is faster than a system with a
dualcoreprocessor, while a
dualcore system is faster than a single-core system, all else being equal.
