Y moved to Multi Core

We know its better, but how is the multicore architecture better than the single core and why this change is important, is an interesting question. A more important question is, how is a single core 2.55GHz single core [e.g. pentium 4] processor is not better than a 1.6GHz Dual-core, Core2Duo etc. processors.

Well it’s certainly a very strong point that, the clock frequency ultimately decides the processor speed. Higher the clock frequency, better the processor performance. But still we moved to the multicore architecture even if the clock frequency is not necessarily greater.  WHY?
