NVIDIA Forceware 81.26 Beta: Single Core vs Dual Core

VR-Zone takes a look at the new features from the recently leaked ForceWare 81.26 beta drivers from NVIDIA. One of these are dual-core CPU optimizations.
Well the individual card clocking did not make it into this set of drivers apparently... but rumors are afloat that they do incorporate dual core optimizations which make use of the extra core of a dual core AMDX2 or a dual core Intel Pentium D to enhance performance.

This is very interesting and we decided to really pit a single core CPU against a dual core CPU on this set of drivers. First off, we need as little variables as possible when we are simply comparing a dual core vs a single core on this set of drivers..
