It cant be effecient having the first processor dual core. since it needs to do all the management. Makes more sense to have a single core master that hands off threads to a multi core chip.
Besides I think it would be good to have at least one core with a dedicated memory array and controller for primary process. With the multi core chip to handle threads that pop up. (of course im thinking in a workstation scenario)
i like how you think... now lets see what amd can do
