"However if the processor were to pretend to be a single processor..."

NEXT! :-)

"...while internally possessing multiple cores and performing load balancing itself, the OS and software will think only one processor core is present and run as normal, albeit faster, hopefully."

I'll assume that this is referring to some kind of Acornesque hardware on hardware solution because the software isn't up to the job, resulting in massive expenditure which could have been directed towards making the software cut the mustard whilst still leaving enough in the kitty for several rounds of pints afterwards.
