As we can see, there is no great increase in performance for video/disk. But we can clearly see the 2nd processor doing its part for CPU Integer/Floating point operations.

I also tested the system by applying filter effects using Photoshop 5.02. Here are some results:

The 2nd processor is helping nicely in speeding things up. Under SMP, it's slightly faster, but don't expect double the performance. It isn't likely to happen in real-world applications.

Now, running a SMP system under Linux is so bloody fast! The moment I flipped the power switch on, Linux just FLEW, handling all the threads with lightning fast efficiency.  It's damn amazing, you gotta see it for yourself. Take a look at the timings for kernel compilations.
