What are the downsides of ASMP?
Only explicitely AMP aware applications can take advantage of the additional cores. All other software can use teh main core only. On SMP the OS schedules all tasks/threads more or less well balanced to all available cores.
Whenever you're sad just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.
