There are very few programs that actually use more than one core.
This is another bit of hype from Intel. with that said AMD has and
has had multi core processors for a long time. If you have
programs that explicitly say they use multi core code then that is
when it really matters.
Actually I don't know if you can even buy a single core CPU
processors have more or less been
phased-out in favor of multi-core processors since
the early 2010s for the mobile, desktop, and server markets. Single-core
processors can still be
found in various low-power, embedded, and special-purpose
applications and devices.Sep

Be careful when evaluating processor speed. My understanding is
that AMD processors have only one core which means that even
though an AMD processor may be rated at a speed of say, 3.5 gHZ,
it may not be as fast in real world use as a multicore Intel
processor rated at the same speed.

Processor brand doesn't matter, it is the
speed of the processor that matters. There are some pretty fast
AMD processors out there, but there are some laptop
manufacturers that are happy to sell you something slow and
cheap even though you will be miserable. You can buy a brand
new laptop today that will be slower than a 6-year-old mid-range
desktop if you aren't careful.
Use the system section of control panel to find out what
processor you have, then go here:
and search it out in the chart and get the speed. Do the same
with any new computer you are looking at.
