What is the added benefit?
I recently purchased a dual PIII 733 with Windows2000 Professional.
When I run the task manager and pull up the perfomance, it appears 1 of my processors never really gets used. I pretty much always sit at 3% CPU usage and about half my capacity of memory usage even when I run resource hogging applications such as Eudora, Netscape, Homesite, Photoshop all at once.
I've never owned a dual before so exactly what (if any) is the benefit of having dual processors?
If the software is designed for dual processors, it speeds things up. I don't know if the application has a setting to let it know about the second CPU, but I wouldn't be surprised. Have a look around.
