Buy a quad core. With my old cpu (amd 7850 dual core) the cities would cause me to get around 20 fps and constant stuttering. I just upgraded to a amd 955 quad core and now the cities never drop below 55 fps and there's no stuttering. I wonder if they forgot to optimize cities for dual core cpus.

This simply means your CPU was the bottleneck in your own system; it's nothing to do with code optimisation.
