Never the less a Dual core shouldnt be a single problem, but it does depend on the speed of the Dual cores :p It should be overclocked for the best performance.
Problem with this game is that it only supports 2 threads, so more then a quad core will hardly gain you anything.
Also the HUD/GUI/UI of this game is being drawn by the processor and seems to be only drawn/showed by one CPU thread. So especially if there is alot of stuff on the screen, lots of ships, lots of reticles, etc, the game just slows down even i you have the fastest GPU around for $500+
I think this game would get alot faster as soon as the update this old UI and make it so that the GPU actually accelerates it.
