Okay, so I am wrong: is it true that U5 and U10 are worse than U2 when 
equiped with 300~400 CPU?
Another question I had for a long time: does SMP really makes sense on 
desktop, browsing and word processing? I don't expect dual CPU average 
performance 200% of single CPU, I don't even expect 120% performance, I 
thought not needed for multi-process for desktops?
